We tried this restaurant on a Sunday night, it was packed and we were turned away but made a booking for the following night. When we arrived and told the waitress of our booking she very abruptly told us she had no reservations for the night. We could see the place was only half full so we said well can... More

A 1666 wooden building and traditional menu but very good food and reasonable prices. We really enjoyed our evening out and would thoroughly recommend it. I can't comment on the hotel side as we didn't stay but it looked a friendly gasthof.

Go there for a nice cheese fondue, some bread and good beer. Authentic swiss feel and not too expensive. The service can be slow cause at the end of the night, the waitress seemed to be alone to manage the restaurant + hotel, but she was still very friendly and nice. I would recommend this place.

We had seen this place the night before and it is a lovely little restaurant and serving all the local specialities so it ticked all the boxes. The service was great and our waitress suggested having one fondue... More

We had a great friendly English waitress tonight who gave us very valuable and helpful recommendations as we stumbled through the menu! Ended up sharing a cheese, tomato and basil fondue and a rosti! Sat in the garden area and had a lovely evening! Extremely tasty, value for money and lovely atmosphere! Only reason that I'm not giving a 5... More
