“to beef or not to beef?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you want to eat a huge size beef or horse steak - this is the place! The restaurant is meant for workers coming for energy "reload" during lunch pause or after work, so the place is very simple, menu is short and basically only grilled meat (with some pastas). However, they know how to cook meat, they do it excellently, they are nice and you want to come back. I have never seen such huge steaks in Swiss restaurants and prices are more than affordable, indeed. If you want to eat delicios meat in a simple but very pleasant environment, you should keep this place in mind!

“Didn't like this place at all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

It is a good spot for beef fondue but the rest of the menu is lacking. Very busy, service poor. We only went once and would not go again.

“Meat paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Everybody in lugano knows this place for its meat; you can have very nice meat in a lot of different menu (grill, chinoise, fondue, chateaux...)
Try eat! Big big portions!
Big place, good service and price is average-high
