Just lovely – food, service and location: Restaurant Nachbarsgarten (11. June 2019)

I think it’s the second time in my life that I have been to Winterthur and actually ate something here. Through sheer luck and coincidence, I encountered the “Nachbarsgarten” (German for ‘neighbour’s garden’) and had booked a table for 8:30pm. However, due to various reasons I was late and only arrived around 9:30pm. I was […]

Solid and swift lunch offering: Restaurant Il Grissino (11. June 2019)

Solid and swift lunch offering: Restaurant Il Grissino (11. June 2019)

Sometimes simple dishes are the best – the “risottino carciofi e burrata (white wine risotto with artichokes, pancetta and burrata)” (CHF 24.50) was creamy in consistency and the combination of the pancetta which provided the dish with the necessary saltiness and the smooth buttery taste of the burrata was a great combination. In terms of […]

Looks more promising than it actually is: Restaurant Barz (4. June 2019)

The Restaurant Barz is located in the old city of St. Gallen and in a quite lovely atmosphere when you get to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather. The menu is rather small but you find something suitable right away. The only downside is the speed of the service – they are super friendly […]

Always worth visiting – unique in every way: Secret Dinner Wonderland (24. May 2019)

To return to a Secret Dinner event will always be a memorable thing – especially if you take the “all-inclusive package” (CHF 220.00). It seems a bit expensive at first but believe me if you have a well-curated thirst, it definitely pays off. The Secret Dinner theme this time was ‘Wonderland’ which left a lot […]

A new restaurant in the former ‘Barolo’: Restaurant La Follia (23. May 2019)

The La Follia is the restaurant which I used to frequent when I was studying in St. Gallen – however, the ‘Barolo’ doesn’t exist anymore and La Follia has taken over. For a couple of years already, I have been told. Given it was one of the first quite sunny days outside, we had lunch […]

Mouth-watering good veal flank steak: Restaurant Huusbeiz (22. May 2019)

It was quite a couple of times that I’ve driven by this restaurant and it has changed its name over time. Finally, it was time to give it a try and I visited the now called ‘Huusbeiz’. Even though it wasn’t very crowded, I would highly recommend you to book a table in advance as […]

Traditional location perfect for a swift dinner: Restaurant National zum goldenen Leuen (20. May 2019)

It is easily a couple of years ago since I’ve last paid the Restaurant National zum goldenen Leuen a visit and I though Monday evening was good moment to do so again. I went for the “home-made potato salad with onions and a vinaigrette sauce” (CHF 7.50) which was a good potato salad – and […]

Very honest and down to earth Italian food: Restaurant Baratella (20. May 2019)

Very honest and down to earth Italian food: Restaurant Baratella (20. May 2019)

More than two years ago, I paid the Baratella a visit and I was brought here again – already back then I had wondered about the place as it does not look overly appealing from the outside but the same is still true as then. The place is simple, nice, and you get good dishes […]
