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.

The fondue was excellent here. The service was okay. Waitress suggested we should tip which we discovered after the fact is usually included. If you like cheese fondue it is worth a stop.

The typical Swiss fondue is available here all year long with a special chef's recipe that's really worth to be tested! In autumn, I can recommend to try the wonderful game plates made with passion by the chef. The deer plate I had was simply delicious!
