A classic pizza restaurant (half the restaurant is the steak house which looked a great deal nicer) but badly laid out so one had to fight the tables next to us to even sit down, white wine from the area (Fendant) was vastly over priced and warm - and the staff failed to deal with our request to chill it down [please note the town is under a snow storm with -11 deg C forecast so they cannot complain about lacking cold!].

Child friendly it certainly is to the extent that I would not eat here again due to the clientele attracted - loud children and shouting parents are not my thing - but if your children (or you) fit this bill then it will suit you down to the ground.

The pizzas were good though and if they can sort out the niggles including reducing the prices then this would be a nice place to eat.

Interior is nice and menu looks tempting. Staff was friendly but that didn´t matter as the food I ordered, the Barbecued Ribs, were practically uneatable. The dish tasted like it had been pre cooked earlier, heated in the micro wave oven and covered with BBQ sauce before serving. This place also have pizzas which look much better than the meat.

Most of the restaurants in Kandersteg appeared to have very similar menues with strikingly similar prices. This Pizza place was different to the other restaurants so made a change. Not very busy at end of September. Pizzas 18 to 28 Swiss Francs

After a walk and a bath in the Linder Hotel I was very hungry and wanted something quick and easy. I normally trust the restaurants that have a "routard" sign on their door, this was the reason we have chosen this restaurant.
We regreted it. Although is was just a couple of simple dishes we ordered nothing about them was fresh. They write on their menue that all the ingredients come from local farms etc.which is a good thing. but they have a problem in storing and processing it. the food came only couple of minutes after we ordered it.
nothing looked appetizing. the bacon was pale almost grey/green. I had to scrath it off my alsatian tarte flambee. the schitzel my husband had was chewy and cold. he couldn't eat it. the staff looked borred and was more interessted in talking to each other and making jokes than the quality of thier food.
we spent only one day in leukerbad, but this place must have better places to eat.

Ihre Bewertung hat das gesamte Choucas-Team sehr überrascht, insbesondere wegen folgenden Aussagen:

Sie sprechen ein "Schnitzel" an, welches in unserer Pizzeria noch nie auf der Speisekarte gegeben hat, da wir ausschliesslich Pizza- und Pastakreationen anbieten . Die Speisekarte ist jederzeit auf unsere Website ersichtlich.

Dann erwähnen Sie den angeblichen Hinweis dass alle Produkte aus lokalen landwirtschaftlichen Betrieben stammen sollten. Dieser Hinweis existiert nirgends in unserem Betrieb (siehe Speisekarte).

Mozzarella, Prosciutto, Pilze, Artischocken, Scampis, Meeresfrüchte, Thon, Kapern, Lachs, Sardellen, Oliven und Parma-Schinken können wir leider nicht aus lokalen Betrieben beziehen, wir geben uns jedoch Mühe einzelne Produkte bei Familienbetrieben im Ausland zu beziehen welche wir persönlich kennen. Deshalb beziehen wir unser Olivenöl und die Oliven nicht aus einem Gross-Discounter sondern von einem ehemaligen geliebten Mitarbeiter der 2005 in Portugal einen eigenen Betrieb auf die Beine gestellt hat und uns regelmässig mit handgepflückten Produkten aus seiner Ernte verwöhnt.

Des Weiteren sind wir daran ein Konzept per Ende Herbst 2010 umzusetzen, welches einheimische Bauernbetriebe aus der Region Espace Leuk noch stärker unterstützt. So z.B. wurden ab 2001 nur noch Freilandeier aus einem lokalen Betrieb berücksichtigt.

Wir finden es sehr schade dass es Ihnen bei uns nicht geschmeckt hat. Wir hätten uns auch sehr gefreut wenn Sie diese Missstände direkt dem verantwortlichen Servicechef mitgeteilt hätten, so hätten sich eventuell alle Missverständnisse relativ rasch geklärt.

Wir wären Ihnen sehr dankbar wenn Sie sich direkt bei uns melden könnten, damit diese Missverständnisse aus dem Weg geräumt werden können und wir Sie beim nächsten Besuch so verwöhnen können wie es sich unsere Gäste normalerweise bei uns gewöhnt sind.

Freundliche Grüsse
Gilles Nebel
Geschäftsführer
