After reading a few tripadvisor reviews we chose to have a Sunday lunch at this hotel. Good Swiss food, reasonable prices (pretty rare in Switzerland!), and very friendly and attentive staff. Hopefully we shall be back again in a few days for another excellent lunch. Had the special of the day - roast beef and salad. Just good food, good... More

Whenever you are fed up with "Nouvell Cuisine" and high sophisticated meals you should move to the Alpenblick. This Restaurant offers typical local Food at reasonable proces. The staff is highly motivated. If you step in there they are treating you like coming into their living room. It's recommended to check the opening Dates and to make a Reservation.

First time here - we went with some local Swiss friends that invited us for a traditional "Metzgete" - my first ever. A Metzgete is a hearty dish that primarily consists of boiled belly pork and freshly cooked Blutwurst and Leberwurst sausages. Accompanying the Metzgete was sauerkraut, rösti and applesauce. Quite the experience! The place was packed to the brim... More

Well, I live nearby, so I love it! Farmhouse restaurant serving basic traditional, mostly pork. dishes. Metzgete is renown! Service is good and friendly but they work hard on a good day because the place can be full to the brim. Atmosphere is "sehr gemütlich" and you will really sit down with the Swiss!!! Pork Geschnetzeltes with Rösti is famous... More

We love this place for the great food, of which our favorite is the porc cotelet with crispy roesti. The atmosphere is rustic and authentic, probably nothing has been changed since 1923 when they started. Service is very friendly and efficient even when the restaurant is full. Reservation is needed for the legendary metzgete.

It's not so much a "fun place", rather conservative, but people are basically friendly and the food is very good! Local specialties and fish from the lake Zurich! The view in summer is spectacular and you can have beautiful walks in the surrounding! Very nice also for coffee / cake in the afternoon on a sunny weekend. They to have... More
