A surprisingly good lunch offering where you’d not expect it: Restaurant Vecchia Posta (8. July 2020)

The Vecchia Posta is a little restaurant located close to the main station but actually hidden quite well. Although I spent a couple of years in St. Gallen during my studies and again more than a year for work, I never read or heard or saw the Vecchia Posta. Therefore, I was quite surüprised to […]

Pre-booking a table during COVID-19 times is a must: Restaurant Einstein Bistro (15. June 2020)

Pre-booking a table during COVID-19 times is a must: Restaurant Einstein Bistro (15. June 2020)

What you get at the Einstein Bistro remains enjoyable – the “Zuercher Geschnetzeltes with Roesti” (CHF 39.00) is not only a nice big portion (although it doesn’t really look like), it’s also absolutely tasty! They set up the restaurant in a way so there is enough space between the single tables which is definitely something […]

Good pizzeria with social distancing measures implemented: Restaurant San Marco (5. June 2020)

Good pizzeria with social distancing measures implemented: Restaurant San Marco (5. June 2020)

The Restaurant San Marco is located on two floors – on the ground floor, there is the pizzeria and on the first floor, there is the actual restaurant. I do not think it makes much of a difference with regards to the menu but the atmosphere is definitely lovelier upstairs. The place was only semi-full […]

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

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)

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 […]
