Romantik Hotel Santis in Appenzell serves some mean traditional Appenzeller dishes in their 2nd story restaurant. Mac n cheese with onions and the traditional appenzeller toast in morel sauce and pork filets both were excellent. Our server, Cassandra, was top notch as she shifted to English for us and French for the table next to us and German for all... More

Well, if you are looking for something special, find another place if you can. Average is the key word: food, atmosphere, service. Pricey, but you are in Switzerland, so you expect it.

OK, there are a few other restaurants at the same level, but none better. We have traveled extensively in Switzerland over the past 10 years. As if just the strongest Appenzeller cheese is not enough to make your palete jump for joy if you like savory foods, add the Appenzell setting and expertly prepared rosti with smoked bacon and you...

The Hotel Santis was a welcoming spot after our party got stuck in a rain storm close to closing time. Rather than frown and shoo us away, we were welcomed, as were several other parties.; The food had a strong local component. I tried a local dish featuring toast with a heavy cheese sauce and chunks of chicken. Tasty and... More

The food was definitely not gourmet. The menu was the basic schnitzel with fries found throughout this area of Switzerland. Two of our children are celiac so the manager came out and made sure the food was gluten free to accommodate our children. While our server seemed to not speak a word of English, the manager took over and helped... More

The Hotel Santis is a charming, lovely little hotel in the quaint village of Appenzell. The rooms in the front of the hotel are very charming. The only drawback is that smoke drifts up to the rooms from those who choose to smoke outside. The Hotel has a wonderful restaurant and the service is impeccable. We have stayed there several...

This charming hotel has also a charming restaurant where we had lunch during our Appenzell visit. There are different saloons both at the entrance and at the first floor. The service was very swift, the food very delicious, especially the mushroom soup. The newly baked breads were yummy too. The outdoor terrace can be preferrable in sunny days.
