Hearty and heavy Swiss food: Restaurant Lokal (30. January 2020)

The last time I visited the Lokal in the Lokremise was about 2.5 years ago and for lunch, the offering isn’t that great and as far as I remember the food wasn’t excellent either. Now, that is pretty much the same still. I went for the “Tom Yam Gung (mushrooms, prawns, spring onions, Thai chili)” […]

Amazing location with outstanding service: Restaurant Zum Goldenen Schäfli (22. January 2020)

What I really like about the Zum Goldenen Schäfli (besides the interior design of the place) is the quality of the service. The waitresses are friendly, competent, and swift in what they do. And they combine that professionalism with a nice hint of joviality in a very pleasant way. I went for the “onion cream […]

Good lunch offering with swift and friendly service: Restaurant Facincani (21. January 2020)

What I like about this restaurant is the fact that they have a rather generous starter soup which is included in the lunch menu – “tortellini al brodo”. The soup itself is rather average but the fact that they put quite some tortellini in it makes it more pleasant. And they are actually also delicious! […]

Perfect Italian experience with a very local twist: Restaurant Baratella (20. January 2020)

The Baratella is always good for a solid Italian dinner – I went for the “insalata con fegato” (CHF 18.80) as a starter which was a decent portion in terms of size and the quality of the fegato was actually good so it was a rather pleasant starter. As a main I went for the […]

Amazing lunch and service experience: Restaurant O’Premier @ Hotel Metropol (13. January 2020)

It’s about three years ago since I’ve been to the Restaurant O’Premier and frankly, I wonder why, given the O’Premier is actually making sure you have a great lunch experience. I went for the menu of the day (CHF 38.00) which started with a “roasted cauliflower soup” which was incredibly tasty and also quite a […]

Incredibly swift lunch – and even enjoyable: Restaurant Gentile (9. January 2020)

It is a bit ago since I’ve last been to the Gentile and it turned out that it has improved on its lunch service capabilities. I went for the “small menu salad” which was good, however, they are not really aware of the concept of “mouth sized pieces”. Frankly, some of the leaves were about […]

Swift and good lunch offering: Restaurant Nektar (6. January 2020)

Although being in St. Gallen frequently, I somehow haven’t managed to pay the Nektar a visit and finally it was time. I went for the “menu soup” which was good but I found the little slices of bread a bit “uninspirational” really. However, the soup was good and wasn’t too hot so it was perfectly […]

The Swiss version of a tapas concept: Restaurant Genuss Manufaktur Neubad (19. December 2019)

So far I have only visited the Genuss Manufaktur Neubad for lunch and finally it was time to pay the place a visit for dinner. The concept is quite lovely overall as you basically have the idea of ordering a couple of small dishes and then share them. Which – obviously – doesn’t work for […]
