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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

A swift but heavy lunch: Restaurant La Bocca City (16. May 2019)

A swift but heavy lunch: Restaurant La Bocca City (16. May 2019)

I made the mistake of ordering a soup before my main course – I shouldn’t have. The soup, the “Crema di Pomodoro” (CHF 8.70) was decent in terms of taste and size. But that was already the problem as the “gnocchi al gorgonzola” (CHF 21.70) portion was so huge it was hard to finish it. […]

The same as eight years ago: Restaurant US Mex (15. May 2019)

It is years ago since I’ve paid the US Mex a visit – but it was finally time to have a real back flash to my study days! I went for the “Fajitas de Res” (CHF 29.00) which is basically a “do it yourself tortilla set” which come with three sauces … … and a […]

A Spanish restaurant run by a Greek: Restaurant Bodega Prado (15. May 2019)

A Spanish restaurant run by a Greek: Restaurant Bodega Prado (15. May 2019)

The Bodega Prado is a simple but honest place which offers good and fairly priced lunch menus – today I had a “mushroom soup” which was nicely thick and chunky and rich in flavor. The drop of whipped cream on top would not have been necessary but it does look better. As a main, I […]

Very Italian restaurant but average food: Restaurant LaVigna (14. May 2019)

Very Italian restaurant but average food: Restaurant LaVigna (14. May 2019)

Dinner at the Restaurant LaVigna is a very pleasurable experience. The place is kind of your typical local Italian restaurant – loud, full, crowded, a lot and tasty food. We went for a set menu which started with a selection of tasty little appetizers like bruschette with olive spread, tomatoes and onions. The slices of […]
