We are regulars to the “Häxehüüsli”. This time we visited with Belgian friends. The place is a bit difficult to find, however the location is excellent. It is very close to the residential area, in a forest, very nice. In summer you can sit outside at a pond. The owner installed a nice path around the house, with witches, trolls... More

The witches decoration and the candlelit tables together make for a very attractive atmosphere. It was not easy to read the menu in the darkened restaurant but the food was excellent. The pumpkin soup was excellent and the skewered meat selection a great choice. Hope to return soon again.

Had lunch there. One diner had the daily special which included a small steak, fries and various vegetables with a lovely green mixed salad. The second dinner had a entree salad. They are large and have all ingredients set separately in a very pleasing matter. Chopped tomatoes ,grated carrots,and some type of meat or fish. I had fries and fish... More

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
