Attractive site in an old town square. Busy on an early Saturday evening in February but able to get in unbooked. Good val;ue and good portions of uncomplicated dishes. . We had Steak and the daily special which was Pork. Service just right, not too slow, not too fast..

One downside for one of us was a dog in the dininbg area though.

went to this restaurant on a summer evening as i passed by it several times and wanted to try.

food is very good (chicken grill and vegetables side), service very prompt and friendly (in both german and englsih if needed).
nothing special, but it's one of those places where you don't expect something extraordinary to happen (be it good or bad). suitable for a relaxing dinner.

very decent prices - 100 chf for 2 persons, incl. beer and wine.

I can't even comment on the food because we never got to that point. We sat outside and were ignored for over 20 minutes. The staff is beyond horrible and rude. Many people sat down after us and were taken care of immediately, we tried to get the waitress' attention whenever she passed by and it was like we were invisible. I'm pretty certain it was because we were foreigners (I spoke German to her, but I have an obvious accent. That wasn't good enough for her).

I was there on Monday for the first time with some friends. We had a nice evening with very good food, casual atmosphere and friendly staff. The interior mixes historical building with a modern touch. I will certainly come back.
