Fodor's Review

This classic, comfortable gathering place serves typical Swiss food, including the traditional and filling Kalbsläberli und Rösti (veal liver with grated, fried potatoes). You can also try the more sophisticated grilled pike perch with ratatouille, roasted pine nuts, and rice. Regulars come for a beer, a full plate, and some laughs with the friendly staff. With stained-glass lamps, ceramic stoves, and attractive woodwork, it's a nice mix of bistro and beer hallt. In summer, enjoy grilled Schweinswürstl (pork sausages) in the beer garden.
