The rosti with cheeses was very good with a dunkel beer. Service and food very good. Few tourists - so much enjoyed. They only get English speaking guests a few times per week but they had English menus.

This restaurants was arranged by local colleagues who have eaten here before. The service was very good, not slow at all. I was given an English menu too, which was appreciated. The food is "swiss", although I don't really know exactly what that means. My...More

I was a member of the Vitodurania Verein back in the late 60s. Does the Vito still meet at the Sonne? Merci vielmals!
