Pleasant room, good pork schnitzel for her, pork steak for me, but slow service and too many flies ( all the windows are open and no screens in Switzerland in the Summer.) The Swiss don't seem to notice the flies, We did.

We sat in their outdoor patio on the busy square. Service was prompt and very good. We had breaded pork escalope with fries and boiled tomato and veal escalope with orange and herbs and a salad. The pork was quite good; but the veal was excellent: very tender and tasty. We highly recommend the veal.

We enjoyed this stop in Appenzell very much, enjoying traditional Swiss fare, gorgeous weather, great beer and friendly staff. Obviously, the Hotel's indoor restaurant is a different experience; but this was just what we needed!

Romantik Hotel Santis in Appenzell serves some mean traditional Appenzeller dishes in their 2nd story restaurant. Mac n cheese with onions and the traditional appenzeller toast in morel sauce and pork filets both were excellent. Our server, Cassandra, was top notch as she shifted to English for us and French for the table next to us and German for all of the others. The appenzeller Riesling wine we chose from their prodigious wine list was great ... Not quite as sweet as your traditional Riesling but just a hint of sweet. Service was prompt without being rushed except for the manager who cleared our table (and food) before we were quite ready to finish. The night before we sampled the dining fare at the neighboring cafe-hotel appenzell. Both are excellent choices! Remember to ask for Cassandra at Santis and ask for Stefan at Cafe Hotel Appenzell. You won't go wrong!

Well, if you are looking for something special, find another place if you can. Average is the key word: food, atmosphere, service. Pricey, but you are in Switzerland, so you expect it.
