A surprisingly good steak house in St. Gallen: Restaurant Al Capone (1. September 2019)

The cool thing about St. Gallen is its price level. I keep forgetting that the same thing in St. Gallen costs about 2/3 of what it would cost in Zurich. When reading that there was a starter caesar salad for CHF 10.80, I thought it was going to be tiny. It wasn’t! The “caesar salad […]

As efficient and as nice as always: Restaurant Mamma Assunta (27. August 2019)

As efficient and as nice as always: Restaurant Mamma Assunta (27. August 2019)

The “tortellini in brodo” (CHF 13.00) is a good portion in terms of size and the tortellini are good in taste. The broth itself is rather bland but still not bad to eat. The “Insalata Caprese” (CHF 15.00) is a good portion and actually has a nice equal distribution of mozzarella and tomatoes which is […]

Delicious lunch offering but overwhelmed service: Restaurant Ruben’s Bistro (26. August 2019)

Delicious lunch offering but overwhelmed service: Restaurant Ruben’s Bistro (26. August 2019)

The “pippilotti salad” has a quite nice combination of flavors and ingredients like avocado, goat cheese, and different types of salad. So, all in all it is a very enjoyable dish but there is one thing which makes me not understand their concept. It took them a solid 25 minutes to prepare that. I get […]

Strong advertisement which does not fit reality: Restaurant La Scala (25. August 2019)

Strong advertisement which does not fit reality: Restaurant La Scala (25. August 2019)

The Restaurant La Scala is a nice place where you have a partial view onto Lake Zurich. However, it’s ‘sold’ way better online than it actually is. The view isn’t as breath-taking and if you don’t have a front row seat you don’t really stand a chance anyways to see much. However, the service is […]

Perfect for a swift Italian lunch: Restaurant Il Brigante (22. August 2019)

Perfect for a swift Italian lunch: Restaurant Il Brigante (22. August 2019)

What I like about the Il Brigante is the speed of service for lunch. As soon as you’re seated, the waitress shows up and takes up your order. The menu salad has a nice variety of ingredients and is – frankly – drenched in salad sauce (which is a definitely over the top). The “pizza […]

Decent food but very slow in its production: Restaurant Acquarello (15. August 2019)

Decent food but very slow in its production: Restaurant Acquarello (15. August 2019)

If you are in a hurry, I would not recommend to visit the Acquarello. We got in quite late that evening (around 9:30pm) and wanted a quick dinner. I started with a “zuppa di pomodoro bianca e basilico (white tomato soup with fresh basil)” (CHF 11.50) which looked didn’t really look all too appealing as […]

Great for lunch but on the more expensive side: Restaurant Zur alten Post (14. August 2019)

Great for lunch but on the more expensive side: Restaurant Zur alten Post (14. August 2019)

I started liking the “Zur alten Post” quite a lot since it is a restaurant which is great in terms of lunch offerings. Not entirely on the cheap side but I like what they offer and the way it is prepared. When you’re seated inside, the atmosphere of the place is absolutely lovely as it […]

Friendly service but weak Caesar salad: Restaurant Einstein Bistro (12. August 2019)

Friendly service but weak Caesar salad: Restaurant Einstein Bistro (12. August 2019)

Luckily, the Einstein Bistro is one of the places which is still open even late in the evening and you get something to eat after 10pm. It does take quite a bit of time though until you get served but better than nothing. The “caesar salad with bacon, Parmesan and chicken stripes” (CHF 27.00) was […]
