Recently went for dinner with friends as the new owners previously ran a great Italian nearby. The place was packed but that added to the atmosphere. Not only was the food absolutely delicious but the service was good. Although pricey (but everywhere is in Zug), it is worth every rapper. Go, you won't regret it. We will be back very... More

I tried to find a quite place in Zug for dinner and found Restaurant Widder The tables with white table cloths attracted me as it looked classy. And there were not that many people. So, perfect for me. Luckily, the food quality correlated with what I subjectively perceived when initially looking at this establishment from outside. I had pasta with... More

The ownership of the restaurant recently changed. It's now a gourmet Italian. Food is really good, the atmosphere is great. We'll come back!

I ate at this restaurant in November and it was delicious. They had seasonal venison with red kraut, berries and cooked apples. Delicious wheat beer also.

We loved it, we went specifically in becasue the owner and his family are selling after 31 years in the business. They will be missed. The roesti with bacon and eggs (Swiss classic) was excellent. The biggest treat is the wonderfully charming daughter and the very friendly father who comes to the table, suggests wine and is a great conversationalist.... More

We went for lunch with the family ordering easy traditional dishes. Almost all dishes were salty and even the french fries were overcooked. The size of the meal for the price too small and served with no creativity at all.
