Awesome ambiance. Farm-style restaurant in the forest. Best location ever. Fantastic service. Delicious food. Especially the lamb chops.

We have visited the "Häxehüüsli" in November with some friends. Since it was already dark we briefly visited the garden, which was illuminated with small electric lamps and spotlights at some specific exhibits, mainly witches in all sizes. Once in the restaurant you are greeted by a cozy atmosphere. The fireplace was on and the interior was only dimly lit,... More

I visited for lunch with a group of 15 hikers (booked in advance). We ate à la carte. I chose the business lunch which consisted of 1) an excellent creme of vegetable soup 2) one of the worst green salads I have ever been served - mushy, far-from-fresh leaves drowned in an unimaginative French dressing 3) a perfectly good but...

Our girls were thrilled by the witches' theme. We've visited both in summer, sitting by the pond, and in winter, cozy by the fire. Food is OK.

Outside a very nice garden with a pond, all tables are on their own, so you can talk without being overheard ,-)) Inside it is decorated with witches (Haex in Swiss dialect meaning witch) all over the place. In wintertime everything is lit with candles, lanterns and the fire burning in the fireplace. Service is very nice. Skewers are good... More

We went there on a nice summer evening, actually a Monday, and the place was packed. Definitely reserve ahead!! The interior is very warm and cozy, as the name says a little house. We sat outside, where another maybe 15 tables or so are arranged on the terrace and around the little ponds. The decoration, both interior and exterior is... More
