“Enormous fondue portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We found this place (it must have been the Stübli) while looking for a good place to have some Swiss fondue. It was in the basement, very cozy, and most of the tables were reserved, but we were able to sit and eat because we arrived early. We loved that we could see the waiters softening the cheese wheels for use in the fondue. And it was a huge portion with bread-more than we could even finish :P The salads were not impressive and overpriced, but we had a wonderful time enjoying the wines and the fondue.

“Schwyzer Stübli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

From the Bahnhof Strasse, follow the red carpet to main door of the Hotel Schweizerhof. Do not go in, wonderful and tempting as it is, but walk straight past. Only a few metres and on your left is the entrance to the Schwyzer Stübli.

Make sure that you arrive after 1700 hrs. and soon the bar quickly fills with local people and those few tourists who have actually ventured in. Tables are often reserved for the evening, but note what the Reservation says. "Reserved at 1900" for example, means exactly that. But please do not occupy the table till 1845, common sense is required.

Now coats off, sit down, order the drinks, relax and enjoy the music. Order some more drinks and enjoy more of the music. Finally, with a warm glow surrounding you, wonder how on earth you never found this place before.

Even think about reserving a table yourself for the whole evening, then you can enjoy the delicious food, the wonderful music, the wide range of drinks, the marvelous staff and real local people enjoying themselves.

Smart-phones are not needed here. Why? Because the people are as real as the music and conversations are heard, between people sat around tables! Children sit listening to the musicians and/or each other, some people dance and have smiles on their faces.

We have been going there for over 25 years.

It's like stepping back years - try it.
