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)

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 […]

Can I bring you something? Get it yourself! @ Restaurant Olivé @ Radisson Blu St. Gallen (10. May 2017)

The breakfast selection at the Restaurant Olivé hasn’t changed much since I have been here last time for “breakfast” (CHF 27.00). But that is absolutely fine as the breakfast selection is very decent ranging from fresh fruit to various types of drinks and milk as well as yogurts … … a nice selection of cheese, […]

The absolutely perfect location for a business lunch: Restaurant Schlössli (9. May 2017)

There are some locations in St. Gallen which stand out a bit – in various ways. Firstly, the Restaurant Schlössli is ranked quite well on TripAdvisor which was – ultimately – also the reason why I gave it a try. Secondly, the atmosphere is lovely as you have the feeling that you are in a […]

Where you still get a decent portion for the price: Restaurant Olivé @ Radisson Blu St. Gallen (8. May 2017)

This evening, I was eating at the restaurant of the hotel I was staying at, where I also got – for the first time – a nice suite upgrade. Once seated, you are served “olive oil, bell pepper butter, and regular butter” with two types of bread. Perfect to kill the emerging small hunger you […]
