The Anker underwent a renovation a while ago but we hadn’t eaten there since. Thus it was a very pleasant surprise to sit in the clean, bright room and be tempted by so many local specialties that we didn’t know where to start. Ultimately we all decided on the fried liver pieces with hash browns, starting off with composed salads.... More

Teufen is ideally located for relaxing walks in the unspoiled landscape of Appenzell. And Anker makes a perfect stop to enjoy a wonderful lunch. Thumbs-up for the excellent service: charming, efficient yet unobstrusive. It truly was Swiss hospitality at its best. The food was delicious. As starter I had the so-called "chicken trio" - as croquette, stuffed, and as pate.... More

It is hard to get simplicity perfect and the Anker does just this. The dining room is plain and simple but very, very chic all at the same time. Angela handles the dining room with grace and precision. And the food is delish! The flavors are clean and clear. My fish was cooked to perfection and the accompaniments were too.... More

It was probably just a thermostat malfunctioning, but there was definitely an over-heating problem at Anker on the evening we dined there. Almost every diner was perspiring, despite having removed jackets or sweaters. Not quite dripping. But enough discomfort to reduce an otherwise 5-star rating to only 4-stars. Apart from the heating malfunction, our experience mirrored that of other reviewers.... More

We had a lovely four course meal at Anker. The food was wonderful, what more can I say? The house red wine was perfect for my taste. I would go back again and again. We also stayed overnight here and the rooms were comfortable, clean and large enough. Breakfast was also high quality.
