Appenzell is very beautiful place, very nice for sightseeing. For sure you get tired and hungry. Occasionally we spotted this little restaurant. When you enter you fill that it's perfect family place. The staff is very friendly here and the food is delicious. Very recommended!

There are many different places to choose from in Appenzell however many of them you wouldn't even think are open! We stumbled across this lovely local restaurant when walking around and it's really good. Food is delicious and it's very local, all the food is local produce which makes it taste that much better. People serving are very happy and... More

We were looking for a place to enjoy a hot beverage and after a long walk as all other places were full, we found this with some space. The lady at the service was not friendly at all from the beginning. We got the food menu but never the beverage one.. even if we said we were there to drink... More

Arrived after a 11 hour flight, just in time for lunch. Restaurant nearly full with remaining tables reserved. The owner made a plan and a table was made available. The food was great as was the local beer.

Tomorrow, we are going back for ice cream. It looked wonderful, not cheep, but wonderful. I am surprised there are no photos of those beautiful ice... More

On Sunday, the 11th of September, we asked at the restaurant till what time they were open. The reply was that dinner service was available till 9 PM. After roaming around town my family and I went there at 8.30 pm but were told that they had decided to shut early that night. No explanation, no apology. Highly unprofessional!

The restaurant is very good, and the staff were very friendly. We had some local cheese and it was very tasty. They have beer soup, it's very delicious and worth a try.

If I look from outside the place is looks like old building.The restaurant looks good inside.The people here always friendly,the staff was helpful and excellent service from them. If you want to drink a beer with friends and with the local this is the ideal place to go and at the same time enjoy the fast food.

The choices were very nice. The food delicious. We enjoyed the garden atmosphere except with the smokers around us. Sometimes, was difficult to communicate special needs with food. Language barrier - wish we spoke more German.

We stopped here in the outdoor seating area after hiking--it was a beautiful day, and a great place to sit and watch people and relax. Service was quick and friendly. The menu is in German, English and French, and the servers are used to people pointing. We had drinks for two adults and two kids, and split two dishes between... More
