This is the best restaurant in Aarau for a reason. Great food, super service, and a great vibe. On a sunny day it is unbeatable. And the tagesmenu is a great deal. A must visit

Very friendly welcome. Good location relative to the old town. Very nice rooms, modern, no carpet, therefore no allergies, quality construction for a quiet night's sleep. Breakfast room nice and breakfast buffet plentiful...only regret was to stay only one night through pre-arranged biking trip.More

Went there with a group of Co workers. I strongly recommend to eat game, as it is shot by a real hunter. It is not cheap but worth the price. Staff has been very friendly and attentive.
