Fodor's Review

This historic guildhall has been transformed into an airy and elegant dining room. The extremely popular place, famous for its traditional ceramic stove, draws a crowd with its business lunches. Dinner features well-executed seasonal cuisine such as pike perch fillets served on red lentils with a parsley-root sauce. Another winner is the lamb with rosemary risotto, ratatouille, and balsamic essence. Also on the premises is an inexpensive courtyard café called the Schlüsselhöfli, with a menu that changes daily.
