Our office is close by so many of our business lunches lead to Blaue Ente. We can't get enough of their Wiener Schnitzel. It's a lovely place in the Mühle Tiefenbrunnen complex surrounded by historic walls, creative people and the lake close by. Their service is outstanding and I never had to complain about their food. Super delicious and every... More

The place is very nice and the food good, but in my opinion the portions are small. We tried the steak tartar (main dish, which is supposed to be the bigger) and it was really small. The same with the roast beef. The service was not excessively special. We asked for more bread (they brought 3 small slices for two... More

Our second visit in 3 months once again we were not disappointed. our food and wine were very good. Our waiter was friendly and helpful and knowledgeable on the the food and wine. Though not busy the service was a little slow but nevertheless it did not detract from our meal, will definitely return.

Ambiente was very nice. Great place in summer to sit outside. Had a business lunch, sat inside. It is a very nice locale with a simple menu and just a handful of choices. I prefer this over 15 page menu novels. The food was very good, the portions just right for me. A fresh loaf of bread was served with... More

Since my last visit, the restaurant seems to have changed hands and the staff is fully Austian or German, but at least they understand Swiss German and are friendly and helpful. The menu has two sections, one tapas style and one classical. From the tapas menu, we chose the one-hour-egg on spinach and the pulpo salad, both were perfect and... More

The restaurant has a lovely old mill wheel in the centre, The menu is varied and there was an English translation, the service was good and efficient and we enjoyed our food and wine. Though we sat near a large table celebrating a birthday it was not noisy.

My husband & I ate at this restaurant 17 years ago - yes, that's not a typo! We weren't impressed the first time. But enough time has passed for it to reinvent itself. And we are now huge fans! Already planning next dinner date with friends.
