An ambrosial truffle and wine experience: Osteria La Cantinella (23. October 2020)

What you experience at the Osteria La Cantinella is ambrosial to your taste buds. The deliciousness of the dishes and the generosity and friendliness of the restaurant owners is just out of this world. As it was during truffle season, of course one wanted to have an overload of truffle. So the “veal tatar with […]

Worth coming for the mouth-watering starter: Restaurant Smith and de Luma (20. October 2020)

Worth coming for the mouth-watering starter: Restaurant Smith and de Luma (20. October 2020)

I had paid a visit to the Restaurant Smith and de Luma a couple of times in the past (2017, 2020) and for me it has always been a safe bet in terms of quality of food and service. While one is still true, I’m not entirely signing the other part anymore. Once you’re seated […]

Kapaun – a castrated rooster for dinner: Restaurant Blasenberg (18. October 2020)

Kapaun – a castrated rooster for dinner: Restaurant Blasenberg (18. October 2020)

The Restaurant Blasenberg isn’t really located anywhere central, so you either have to drive up here by car or through a little hike. For me, it was the “hike version”. Once you have arrived up there, you wonder what is so special about the place – but you will figure soon. As a start to […]

If you’re into meat, don’t come on Tuesdays: Restaurant The Butcher & His Daughter (22. September 2020)

If you’re into meat, don’t come on Tuesdays: Restaurant The Butcher & His Daughter (22. September 2020)

I had read about “The Butcher & His Daughter” lately and was quite intrigued by the reviews. What I didn’t know was that they have a “veggie day” on Tuesdays. So my tip is, don’t come on Tuesdays if you want to eat meat. To be fair, if you don’t want to eat vegetarian, they […]

Absolutely atmospheric location and good dishes: Restaurant Villa Schweizerhof (19. September 2020)

It is years ago since I’ve been to the Villa Schweizerhof which back then was called “Villa Häusermatte” (see review) and I must say, I liked it back then and also this time, it was definitely a great experience. Once you’re seated, some bread with olive oil is served. Once you’ve ordered, the menu starts […]

An interesting and genuine Peruvian food experience: Restaurant Barranco (17. September 2020)

An interesting and genuine Peruvian food experience: Restaurant Barranco (17. September 2020)

Finally, I was able to get a table for the Barranco. Somehow you always have to book weeks in advance to secure a table which is – honestly speaking – quite annoying. However, it is worth doing it. Once you’re seated, the waitress attends you relatively quickly to bring some nibbles (corn) and the menu. […]

Business lunch – almost like in Bavaria: Restaurant Bauschänzli (17. September 2020)

Business lunch – almost like in Bavaria: Restaurant Bauschänzli (17. September 2020)

Somehow I have always associated the Restaurant Bauschänzli with the Swiss version of the “Oktoberfest” and wasn’t really visiting it too often. And I suppose my assumption wasn’t entirely off. What you get here are basically simple but hearty dishes for lunch. I went for the “perch crisps in beer dough with tartare sauce and […]

Very decent offer for a business lunch: Restaurant Brasserie Schiller (10. September 2020)

Very decent offer for a business lunch: Restaurant Brasserie Schiller (10. September 2020)

Sometimes, it’s easy what to get. One of the last sunny days this years (although I hope differently), I decided to have a good beef tartare as a main course. The “tartare de filet de boeuf (from Schrofenhof Limousin beef, served with quail egg, butter toast and fries”) (CHF 38.00) was actually quite delicious. And […]
