Rustic environment, borderline "kitsch". Very (very) slow service, strong grilled meat smell throughout the dining rooms.
Friendly but not ver professional Swiss staff, but food is OK. Nothing particularly special, but not bad.
Will I go back? Most probably not!~
About 35 CHF per person for one dish and one drink

Restaurant Baren is nice, the food is not very special but they have interesting themes and often have live music which can be quite loud therefore it is not the place to go and have a good talk. But it is a nice experience....

Our party did not speak German and were a bit hindered as the menu was only printed in German. Although the server did not speak English, she asked the chef to come to our table to translate the menu. Between the eight of us, we tried almost everything on the daily lunch menu, all of which was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Not just good food, but a good time. Try the sizzling steak on a stone!
