Experiencing a Swiss tradition in the best way possible: Metzgete @ Restaurant Falken Wiedikon (10. November 2021)

I’ve already had the pleasure in 2020 to try out the Metzgete at the Falken Wiedikon and was happy to be able to do the same this year. The Metzgete (CHF 45.00) has a bit of a unique concept since it’s not just one large platter of meat you get but it’s actually served as […]

Always great for a nice platter of Robespierre: Restaurant Bederhof (4. November 2021)

Always great for a nice platter of Robespierre: Restaurant Bederhof (4. November 2021)

The Bederhof is always a great location for a nice traditional dinner. They offered a special this evening, a “pheasant terrine with toast and chutney” (CHF 15.50) which was definitely nice, especially with the chutney and the pickled fruit. The toast which was served with it worked perfectly together with the rest. What I always […]

If you want to try what Flynn McGarry has to offer, visit his ‘Gem’: Excellence Gourmetfestival with Flynn McGarry (23. October 2021)

I was super excited when I heard about Flynn McGarry coming to Europe to cook in one of the Excellence Gourmetfestival tours since I’ve visited the young chef in June 2019 in his New York restaurant ‘Gem’ and while there was some downside in terms of experience creating, he definitely had a few mouth-watering dishes […]

Absolutely recommended for a swift lunch experience: Restaurant Bistro k2 (15. October 2021)

Absolutely recommended for a swift lunch experience: Restaurant Bistro k2 (15. October 2021)

The Bistro k2 is a place I grew fond of over the past few weeks – they always offer a good lunch menu as well as a decent à la carte menu. I went for the lunch menu which starts with a “menu salad” which is quite generous in terms of mixture of different ingredients […]

Traditional Swiss dishes in a modern but traditional atmosphere: Restaurant Werdguet (14. October 2021)

What you get at the Restaurant Werdguet is an authentic Swiss cuisine experience. The atmosphere is somewhat that of a typical traditional Swiss restaurant but with a little modern twist. The staff is friendly and attentive and makes sure you have everything you need and want right away. I went for one of their classics, […]

Decent breakfast selection but far from outstanding service: Restaurant 45 Grill & Health @ Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic, Autograph Collection (10. October 2021)

Decent breakfast selection but far from outstanding service: Restaurant 45 Grill & Health @ Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic, Autograph Collection (10. October 2021)

The breakfast selection at the Restaurant 45 in the Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic is decent – but nothing more. You find a bit of everything like some sausages, tomatoes, vegetables, egg … … hash browns and very good bacon … … as well as fruit, eggs, cheese, cold cuts, salmon … … different kinds of […]

Good but not as good as advertised online: Restaurant Bis (9. October 2021)

Good but not as good as advertised online: Restaurant Bis (9. October 2021)

I was positively surprised to find a restaurant with a 4.8 google rating in Montreux but it turned out that this was at least to some degree absolutely fine. The evening started with some really tasty “olives” which were coated in some kind of condiments which made them super delicious. The head waiter made sure […]

A tiny, cozy bar with great cocktails: Tales Bar (6. October 2021)

A tiny, cozy bar with great cocktails: Tales Bar (6. October 2021)

The Tales Bar only opens at 8pm so it’s not optimal for a pre-dinner drink but it’s very optimal for a post-dinner drink and that’s where we ended up for exactly that purpose. The “Jail House Punch (Amafi Mexcal, Italicus, lime, Oleo Saccharum, orange & lime zest)” (CHF 19.00) was definitely a refreshing but also […]
