Delicious meat but horrible service: Restaurant Kentucky Saloon Steakhouse (13. September 2018)

When you are in an area you really don’t know, TripAdvisor is always your trusted source on where to go. The Kentucky Saloon Steakhouse was among the top 2 at the time in Pratteln. Well, time to give it a try. After calling three times and noone picked up but it said it was open […]

Average at best – definitely not ‘max’: Restaurant max @ Courtyard by Marriott Pratteln (13. August 2018)

Average at best – definitely not ‘max’: Restaurant max @ Courtyard by Marriott Pratteln (13. August 2018)

Given, I kinda liked the “tomato soup” (CHF 8.00) last time, I decided to go for it again. And it is still good, and even though the whipped cream wasn’t applied as generously as last time, it is still completely unnecessary. The “bistro burger (100% beef, bacon, cheddar, salad, tomato, caramelized onions, brioche bun) served […]

Decent place in a homey restaurant: Restaurant Heimelig (9. August 2018)

Decent place in a homey restaurant: Restaurant Heimelig (9. August 2018)

The ‘Heimelig’ (which means ‘homey’ in English) is apparently one of the better restaurants in the area. And admittedly, it is definitely a nice place. As it is porcini season, I went for the “fresh porcini” (CHF 22.00) which were delicious in flavour. But paying CHF 22.00 for basically one porcini just seems overpriced to […]

Amazingly swift lunch service: Restaurant Farnsburg (9. August 2018)

Amazingly swift lunch service: Restaurant Farnsburg (9. August 2018)

What’s outstanding about Farnsburg is the speed and friendliness of the service – within a few minutes, they bring you your beverages as well as the “menu salad”. Today, I went for the “pork cordon bleu fiorentina (stuffed with gorgonzola and spinach)” (CHF 31.50). The cordon bleu is actually quite good, however, it is too […]

Not a place you have to visit if you’re not staying at the hotel: Restaurant max @ Courtyard by Marriott Pratteln (7. August 2018)

The “tomato soup” (CHF 8.00) is surprisingly delicious as it is actually full of actual tomato flavour but the whipped cream which is put on top is – frankly – completely unnecessary. The “Caesar Salad (bacon, croutons, Parmesan cheese, grilled chicken breast)” (CHF 28.00) on the other hand is a disappointment. The chicken is probably […]

Decent roastbeef – nothing extraordinary though: Restaurant Farnsburg (31. July 2018)

Decent roastbeef – nothing extraordinary though: Restaurant Farnsburg (31. July 2018)

Lately, I saw someone ordering the “roastbeef with a tartare sauce and French fries” (CHF 24.50) and it looked quite delicious, so I decided to give it a try. While the French fries are not exactly out of this world, the roastbeef was actually surprisingly good and rich in flavour. The terrace in the Farnsburg […]

Swift service, heavy cordon bleu: Restaurant Farnsburg (27. July 2018)

Swift service, heavy cordon bleu: Restaurant Farnsburg (27. July 2018)

The “veal cordon bleu Farnsburg with ham, cheese and porcini” (CHF 37.50) is quite a portion. It is long and quite heavy but also delicious. Most restaurants which serve cordon bleus put only a tiny bit of cheese in it. The Farnsburg on the other hand is quite generous with it making sure it is […]

Super swift service and decent food for a good price: Restaurant Farnsburg (26. July 2018)

The Farnsburg has kind of turned into my favourite restaurant in Liestal. And that is mainly for one reason: Quick service over lunch, decent dishes, and ultimately more than fair pricing. You get a “menu salad” … … and the pizza you want (here: “Pizza Volcano whit extra anchovies”) for a mere CHF 19.50. And […]
