4 of us had dinner here on the first night, all left happy and full. The tartar was much better than the rather bland mushroom salad. We all had different main courses and all the plates were cleared. Really pleasant staff ensure a quality dining experience, highly recommended.

Lovely woody ambience. The host was extremely personable and helpful. We had the lobster soup which was outstanding. Great modern food! The Swiss white wine was great too.

Had the 4 course meal tonight and it was spectacular! Asparagus and shrimp salad, smoked meat cream soup, beef medallions and strawberries with whipped cream and Ice cream. Finally an espresso. Every course was perfectly presented and scrumptious. The atmosphere was lovely. There were many local families eating and playing cards. The hostess was great but only spoke German. The... More

We dined at the Restaurant Marktplaz on a Friday evening with live dulcimer music played by a young Appenzeller boy. The music was wonderful, but the cuisine was fabulous. This small restaurant with about 11 tables is highly decorated in the local architectural style. The owner and another served table and were very prompt, efficient and friendly. The Gemeuseteller (vegetable... More

Very cosy place with traditional furniture. The owner promotes art, there is always some sort of exhibition. Food is also enjoyable and menu is changing according to season. Definitely the best traditional place in town, must visit for visitors!

Last weekend the weather was very poor, so we decided to take a family trip to Appenzell with Grandma. This restaurant had good reviews so we chose to go here. The restaurant is decorated nicely and the host is very warm and welcoming, but........the food was a disappointment. We started with a salad starter. The dressing reminded me of French... More

Marktplatz is just off the main square in Appenzell. Warm and beautifully decorated restaurant with the finest service and food that we experienced in Switzerland. The menu is written entirely in German, but the manager of the restaurant came to the table and very generously described every item on the menu. I opted for the pumpkin soup, followed by hirschpfeffer... More
