This is one of my favourite Restaurants in Winterthur. Even though the location is a bit outside the city centre and you either have to walk a bit from the next bus station or get there by car/taxi/bycicle, the view and the quietness is well worth it. However, it's not the view that makes this place one of my favourites: I simply like their delicious food, a good glass of wine and the extremely friendly staff! What else do you want?
PS: Most dishes (starters, mains, desserts) can be ordered gluten-free which is quite exceptional!

Went there as a solo business traveler, very hungry, after a long, difficult, busy day.....

Location:
Outside Winterthur, on a very nice hill with magnificent views, lots of fresh air, trees, etc.

Premises: 10 out of 10

Food:
Quite pricey, although it is worthy of every penny. Yet, could be easily on a 20% lower price level, they would (for sure) make a good profit....

I've had an appetizer and a salad, main dish and finally a dessert.

- Main dish: Very well prepared, top quality of materials, very nice presentation, good (even big) quantity
- Appetizers: Only two.... Yet, also good regarding quality and presentation
- Salads etc. Same as above, medium quantity
- Dessert: Same as above.

Service:
Very polite, smart and accomplished waiters, speaking good English. However, they are operating in a somehow "loose" manner, leading them many time during rush hour to forgetting / even neglecting client's orders..... Good people but without good management!....

Wines & Spirits:
A few, yet very good and not pricey choices. Recommended!...

Prices:
As already mentioned, stands quite high:
For one appetizer + one salad + main + dessert + 3 glasses of wine + one small (330cl) beer, total = €103!.....

....I really don't like to think what I would pay, if the same place was downtown Zurich!.....

We all liked the food with fresh vegetables and well cooked meat. The self-made desert rounded this positive culinary experience. The personnel was very friendly and professional. Children choose from their kids menu card, food arrived promptly for them and they enjoyed the big nice playground outside.

"Doesn't this sound like the sea?" says the owner when he listens to the sound of the far away motorway. And he might actually be right: The environment, the garden, the architecture of the restaurant doesn't make you feel as if you were sitting in Winterthur, Switzerland.
The food is straight forward, fresh and tasty. Nothing extravagant - rather down to earth Swiss cooking - you can even get tribes (Kutteln). The nicest thing - especailly in summer - for families: A huge slide and a nearby playground for the little ones. This gives mom and dad the freedom to enjoy their meals as well.
