We went on a family Sunday to Appenzell, and we saw that restaurant and we try to try it, we were delighted. Excellent traditional food, great attention and great friendliness. I am a Spanish resident here in Switzerland and as a Spanish if you visit Switzerland I recommend it.

What a great little jewel .. we discovered here. A great location in the center of the little and very historical town. A beautifully painted Building (exterior) and inside a typical Swiss style of restaurant. Fast, friendly and efficient service - Well prepared Food .. all local fare, big portions and reasonable prizes. There is also a big outdoor garden... More

We were here at the weekend. I opted for the beer soup which was unusual but very tasty and my partner had the Hash Browns(roesti) with the Appenzell cheese and fried egg. A huge plateful and almost too cheesy if that's possible! Reasonable prices, good service and central location.

Appenzell is very beautiful place, very nice for sightseeing. For sure you get tired and hungry. Occasionally we spotted this little restaurant. When you enter you fill that it's perfect family place. The staff is very friendly here and the food is delicious. Very recommended!

There are many different places to choose from in Appenzell however many of them you wouldn't even think are open! We stumbled across this lovely local restaurant when walking around and it's really good. Food is delicious and it's very local, all the food is local produce which makes it taste that much better. People serving are very happy and... More

We were looking for a place to enjoy a hot beverage and after a long walk as all other places were full, we found this with some space. The lady at the service was not friendly at all from the beginning. We got the food menu but never the beverage one.. even if we said we were there to drink... More

Arrived after a 11 hour flight, just in time for lunch. Restaurant nearly full with remaining tables reserved. The owner made a plan and a table was made available. The food was great as was the local beer.

On Sunday, the 11th of September, we asked at the restaurant till what time they were open. The reply was that dinner service was available till 9 PM. After roaming around town my family and I went there at 8.30 pm but were told that they had decided to shut early that night. No explanation, no apology. Highly unprofessional!

The restaurant is very good, and the staff were very friendly. We had some local cheese and it was very tasty. They have beer soup, it's very delicious and worth a try.
