Sound lunch offering but lacking spices: Restaurant Il Gentile (27. September 2017)

The “celery leek cream soup” which was part of the lunch menu is overall quite decent but lacks spices. There is basically no salt and/or pepper in the soup making it rather dull. The flavours of the ingredients don’t really compensate for the lack of salt. While the “pork cordon bleu stuffed with ham, chorizo, […]

A café offering good lunch menus: Restaurant Café Gentile (12. September 2017)

I had walked by the Café Gentile quite a couple of times but somehow I never saw it as more than a regular place for coffee. Turns out, I was wrong. While I had a coffee there in the morning to prepare with a colleague for a meeting, we figured it would be more efficient […]

Great lunch pizza offering: Restaurant La Bocca City (23. August 2017)

Great lunch pizza offering: Restaurant La Bocca City (23. August 2017)

I must admit I was quite surprised that you had to book a table in advance, especially given that the place itself is not so fancy. However, I do admit that the pizza I’ve had for lunch was absolutely good. The “pizza Calabrese with tomatoes, mozzarella, spicy Calabrese salami, olives and oregano” (CHF 19.50) and […]

Decent lunch with not entirely perfect timing: Restaurant Wirtschaft zur Alten Post (3. August 2017)

Decent lunch with not entirely perfect timing: Restaurant Wirtschaft zur Alten Post (3. August 2017)

I cannot remember how many years ago I’ve last been to this place – but it is definitely more than 8 years ago. And I somehow had kept a blurry but good memory of it and I was not disappointed. For lunch, I went for the “cold melon cucumber with ginger soup” (CHF 4.80) which […]

As great for lunch as for dinner: Restaurant Neubad (27. June 2017)

As great for lunch as for dinner: Restaurant Neubad (27. June 2017)

A couple of months back, I tried the Restaurant Neubad in the evening and was absolutely positively surprised. And luckily, this time for lunch, it was a similar experience. I decided to go for the lunch menu (CHF 24.50) starting with “curry soup” which was having a nice but not too intense curry taste. The […]

Rather average dishes and definitely average service: Restaurant olivé @ Radisson Blu St. Gallen (26. June 2017)

Rather average dishes and definitely average service: Restaurant olivé @ Radisson Blu St. Gallen (26. June 2017)

The menu in the Restaurant olivé is not that extensive so I guess I will have tried everything the next time I’m dining there. Today, it was a “tomato basil soup” (CHF 8.00) as a starter and frankly, it was really a stretch in terms of ‘being able to accept it’. I mean, the portion […]

Surprisingly good lunch offering with quick service: Restaurant Atrium (26. June 2017)

Surprisingly good lunch offering with quick service: Restaurant Atrium (26. June 2017)

Whenever I’m in St. Gallen I realize how expensive Zurich really is. For only CHF 26.50 you get a lunch menu starting with a quite decent “mixed salad” and … … a “baked fish filet with cocktail sauce, asparagus tomato salad and roasted potatoes”. And while the salad was nice in terms of ingredients, the […]

Offering way more than focaccia only – with a lovely garden in the back: Restaurant focacceria (22. May 2017)

Offering way more than focaccia only – with a lovely garden in the back: Restaurant focacceria (22. May 2017)

So far I have associated the focacceria with antipasti and focaccia and not with proper dishes but as I have been recommended to pay the place a visit when in St. Gallen, it was time to try it out. There is a nice little patio with a garden where you can sit outside and enjoy […]
