This beautiful restaurant is just right by the tourist attraction Abbey of St. Gall which belongs to the UNESCO world heritage site. The restaurant itself is a historical vault, which was a horse stable in the old days. The restaurant has atmospheric late medieval charm. The menu offers the meaty classics, such as Wiener Schnitzel and beef Stroganoff with a... More

Stopped here for coffee after visiting the Cathedral. Service was friendly and efficient and our coffee came with a glass jar of small biscuits. We sat outside as it was a sunny morning and the terrace was sheltered so warm. The toilets were really impressive, some of the nicest I have seen on my travels.

This restaurant offers delicious menus in a nice atmosphere. It is located in an old building near the cathedral but furnished in a modern style. Food and service are excellent.

就在修女院图书馆的广场一角,院子里蛮好晒太阳喝咖啡的,室内的环境也很高雅。点的商务套餐2道,然后自己加了杯咖啡。 出乎意外滴好吃!在瑞士住了这几年,对瑞士的餐厅评价永远是:又贵又难吃。可是这一次颠覆了!前餐的南瓜汤对我来说偏咸。主菜的牛排烤得恰到好处,意面配着非常有味的汤汁料和菌类,完美!2点歇业的让我们吃到3点多也是极其不好意思。 喜欢圣加仑这座城市,比其它的德语区更有趣。而这家餐厅是再去圣加仑的首选! This is the best restaurants in Switzerland what I was ate! Perfect! Near library .

Great restaurants close to St. Gallus. Every time I came to St. Gallen, I always eat here 1 or 2 times. Friendly services and everyone speak English. Fish dishes you must try. 想要吃正統的歐式料理,來這裡就對了。

I only came here briefly with my mum for a coffee break whilst pottering round st Gallen and cannot believe we have never tried it before! The service was so efficient and everything exceeded expectations! Little macaroons and a selection of finger foods were brought to our table without us even asking! We sat outside on the little balcony and... More

We have been to the Restaurant Am Gallusplatz - next to the abbey which is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site - various times and love it, as it is authentic with excellent management and service and outstanding food. There is something for everybody's taste and today we had e.g. lobster tail as a starter and home made cordon... More

Went for lunch the Sunday before Christmas and were delighted by the lovely room we were put in. The food and service alike were perfect and all 8 of us will be going back again next year!

I have been to this establishment many times and have never been disappointed (probably between ten and twenty times so far). I have also organized a birthday meal there with complete freedom over the choice of menu and wines. It is run by father and son Sistek, father is the cook and son is the caterer. It is rather expensive... More
