Not only good for dinner but also great for lunch: Restaurant netts Schützengarten (19. November 2019)

So far, I have only tried the netts for dinners – finally, it was time to give it a shot for lunch and I must say – despite the fact that the prices are at the upper end of what I consider acceptable – the food is great and the service is lovely. I went […]

Lovely alternative lunch offering in St. Gallen: Restaurant The Pinch (18. November 2019)

Although I have passed The Pinch quite a couple of times, I have never realized it is actually a restaurant when passing. Today was the time to give it a try. I went for the “soup of the day” which was a nice portion in size but also in terms of taste. The “white wine […]

Great drinks but weak service: Dry Bar @ Hotel Maria Cristina, a Luxury Collection Hotel, San Sebastián (16. November 2019)

The Dry Bar is actually quite a nice place overall – at least in terms of the quality of the drinks they offer as well as the atmosphere. I went for some drink of which I cannot remember the name but it was definitely delicious. More fun is the “Fugu” – it tastes nice but […]

A truly overwhelming experience at No. 7 of the world: Restaurant Mugaritz (16. November 2019)

I was looking very much forward to dining at No. 7 of the world according to the Acquapanna / San Pellegrino List of the 50 best restaurants of the world and I must say, I was not disappointed. I was overwhelmed. We went for the “tasting menu” (EUR 200.00) – not that we really had […]

A truly local pintxos experience: Restaurant Bodega Donostiarra (16. November 2019)

A truly local pintxos experience: Restaurant Bodega Donostiarra (16. November 2019)

The app “Where Chefs Eat” remains an absolutely reliable source for good food experiences. The Bodega Donostiarra was recommended for “pintxos” (tapas but in Basque county) and I must say that they delivered once more. We went for the “sardinillas gallegas ‘Salanorf’” (EUR 5.70) which were absolutely enjoyable but also quite oily. My favorite was […]

A couple of oral explosions but too heavy on the seafood side: Restaurant Martín Berasategui (15. November 2019)

I was looking forward to this weekend for quite a while – when do you have the chance to try 8 Michelin stars in less than 72 hours? When you go to San Sebastián, this is possible. The weekend started with 3 Michelin stars at Martín Berasategui where we went for the “tasting menu” (EUR […]

Perfect understanding of what people want for a lunch: Restaurant Brauwerk (11. November 2019)

The Brauwerk belongs to the Schützengarten group (a brewery in St. Gallen) and offers a nice selection of different dishes and very inexpensive lunch combinations. The menu (CHF 20.00) included a “tomato soup” which was good but served surprisingly quick (about 2 minutes after we had placed our order). In any case, I highly appreciate […]

Perfect for a swift Italian lunch: Restaurant Amalfi (8. November 2019)

It is more than a year ago since I’ve last been to the Amalfi and it remains a good place for a quick Italian lunch. I went for the lunch menu (CHF 32.00) which started with a “lentil soup” which was rich, had actual lentils and was quite a huge portion – more like a […]
