the ambience is really nice and the menu offers a wide range of different food. service was not too friendly and not too attentive though. I had pasta with prawns - pasta was convenience, prawns were fried to death. All that in connection with rather high prices did not make me happy.

Built as a butchers guild hall in 1484, floors and ceilings tilt, atmosphere is terrific and authentic, but oudone by the food, which is exceptional. The rosti and sauteed liver were outstanding.

The food and the ambiance was good but with a price. The waiter was very accommodating and new what to recommend. This is definitely a place to eat at St. Gallen.

I've been a regular for the past 30+ years and have yet to experience a bad meal! All of my foreign clients/friends have been there at least once and most want to go back! Great!

The restaurant has a very interesting and a very long history, written on the first page of the menu. You have the impression to be somehow 100 or more years in the past. I ate the calf's liver and the famous Swiss Roesti potatoes. I was really absolutely wonderful. They also have a good choice of wines. I really can only recommend the place, its just great.
