“Traditional Alpine Swiss cuisine restaurant”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

This restaurant is a must-see in Chur. Just slightly more expensive than you'd probably expect but you'll never regret visiting the place if you're keen on learning the local cuisine and culture.

The interior has a very tradional Buendner (Grisonian) look and feel with green tiles on the walls, antique-looking wooden tables and lights.

The menu includes Swiss specialties like Capuns, Pitzokel, Buendner teller (a plate with thinly sliced meat and sausage), Roeteli Coupe (ice cream with a local liquour sirup) and Nusstorte (a nut cake), i.e. all the traditional Alpine food one must try at least once in their life.

The last but not the least was the service! Friendly and homely are the two words that best describe it. We were lucky to be there when a group of local Rumantsch (Rhaeto-Romance) people were having a dinner there chatting quietly in their beautiful melodic language. Our waitress (Cecilia) was also Rumantsch who turned out to be the first person in Switzerland who introduced us to her great culture.
