I was looking forward to taking my kids to this restaurant especially since rösti is one of their specialties (my daughter’s favourite food).. Overall, I was disappointed, particularly with the service. The waiter was not very friendly; when I asked if they offer child-size portions...More

Kohlmann’s is a large modern restaurant, nice decor, clean. It also seems popular with locals. We both had flat bread dishes, which were good, though not exceptional. Decided to simply have a glass of red Merlot each, rather than a full bottle. One ice cream...More

What I mean is that Kohlmanns has excellent service, a nice atmosphere and good food, but not great food. And considering the very high prices they charge, it is not a place where the value is on the plus side for the money spent. I...More
