The menu is strongly Swiss, with venison ragout, weiner schnitzel and other specialties. An English menu was provided even before I asked for one. Not inexpensive, but worth it. The chef is fantastic, and the waitstaff show multilingual European flair.

Enjoyment of meat with a long tradition There is scarcely another restaurant that can equal the Ochsen’s close association with the enjoyment of fine quality meat. For several generations the perfect symbiosis between our warm hospitality and excellent meat has produced high culinary standards.
