“Delicious and very friendly place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Well, this is a very relaxing and enjoyable place with a pretty original menu offering delicious meats on the wood grill. Wine selection is good and the "Aperol Spritz" is very well made :-)
In a very old traditional city it is a pleasure to discover a "young driven" atmosphere and a kind of "trendy" place. The only "minus" remark would be about the service. Do not think it is bad, not at all, the staff is absolutely charming and very friendly but is is quite obvious that they are not enough to give a real service like it should be. This is more a management problem than anything else. Beside the delicious meats, cheese and daily menu there are some "vegetables pizzas" that are also delicious. The menu cart is definitely original as it combines the traditional dishes from here with a hint of fashionable presentation. We had a great time there (3 times yet) and we definitely will come back ... with a better service hopefully.

“must try in appenzell”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

if you want to eat at a place where even the locals go and where it is not tooo much of "swissness" go to Gass 17.

The staff is very friendly and the food (mainly good meat done over open wood fire) is just excelent.

Anytime again

“Modern chic in town centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Situated in the marktplatz, this restaurant is modern and stylish. We sat here drinking prosecco and watching the world pass languidly by. The service and friendliness of the staff was excellent.
