Great to have a glass or two of local wine and a platter of typical local dry meat. Not a huge selection and only recommended during summer and autum, but then definitely a place to stay and enjoy!

Sitting in the vineyard with a glass of wine and enjoying the good food is making this place one of a kind. But the prices here are equivalent to gourmet restaurants.
The food is good without being exceptionel. What saves the Torkel are the wines and the faboulus ambience.

We stumbled across Jenins while looking for a charming place to spend a night in this part of Switzerland. From the highway the town looked just like what we wanted and after finding a pleasant place to stay we wandered the village to find a place to eat. This weinstubl looked perfect, and after a preliminary glass of the local wine (we really enjoyed a Maienfeld pinot noir) we decided to stay for dinner, too. The menu had a broad range of choices, and the dishes we chose were absolutely fantastic. Perhaps the views of the surrounding mountains, with the orderly rows of vines in the foreground, added to our enjoyment of the meal, but we left very happy indeed. Pricing is a bit high, but not unreasonable at all.

One note: the menu can be hard for a casual German speaker to understand, since it uses regionalisms that are not standard, especially if you're more familiar with Hochdeutsch. But the staff were only too willing to help (and they speak some English) so don't fear!
