The best way to start a long-haul trip: SWISS First Class Lounge A (18. August 2018)

The SWISS First Class Lounge is an experience of its own – especially since you get a super fast security check making traveling as hassle free as you can potentially imagine. Within 30 seconds, I was through and in the lounge. The place itself is rather small to be honest but it is functional and […]

Lovely view but incredibly overprized meals: Restaurant Hide & Seek @ Atlantis by Giardino (15. August 2018)

Lovely view but incredibly overprized meals: Restaurant Hide & Seek @ Atlantis by Giardino (15. August 2018)

I was at the Hide & Seek about a year ago and decided to give it another shot – and the evening started with a “melon chili shot” as a first greeting from the kitchen which was refreshing on the one hand side and had a nice hint of spiciness on the other hand side. […]

Perfectly swift lunch offering: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (15. August 2018)

It is a couple of weeks ago since I’ve last been to the MASI wine bar but it is always a good place for lunch – especially since they have varying menus on a daily basis plus they are swift! I went for the “cold melon soup” as a starter which was nice as it […]

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 […]

Nice breakfast in a great atmosphere: Restaurant Hotel Alpenblick (5. August 2018)

The breakfast selection at the Hotel Alpenblick is quite decent overall – you really find a bit of everything but there is nothing outstanding or really special here. The quality of the food is good though. While the service is kind of inexistent and you basically have to organise everything yourself, the real gem here […]
