We went in this lovely place 2 days ago. The location is very very tipical, i love it! We ate a delicius cheese fondue (x 2 persone) and it was really really great. The only problem was the temperature inside, it was very hot!

Had some friends visiting from UK and took them here for some Suisse food. Service was excellent. There was a slight language barrier but this didn't effect the service at all. The waitress was polite, friendly and efficient and very helpful. The restaurant was clean with a welcoming atmosphere. The food was delivered quickly and was hot and delicious. There... More

We went twice, quite nice experience, the food was really good (Cordon Blue, Fondue, Rosti and Aplpe macaroni ) and the service friendly. However the could do something with the ventilation because the smell is really intensive, especially when there is fondue season. Also, it would be nice if need menu online would be updated as it is in restaurant.... More

Having been to Zug several times this was the first time we ate there. A very nice place with a real fell of Switzerland. My wife and I always like the have the veal bratwurst and Rosti. My son had wiener schnitzel. All very good. We will eat there again once we return.

We enjoyed a great evening on the 1st floor of the Baeren restaurant with around 40 people. Mrs Widmer and her team went literally the extra mile to make us feel at home.

This restaurant is very well known and popular among the locals and has a long tradition. It is centrally located next to the shopping Mall "Metalli" and only 2 min. away from the main train station. It possesses a rather rustic and warming infrastructure with wooden chairs and red/white squared table clothes. It is in particular famous for its Schnitzels,... More

I was in this restaurant at lunch time, just before 12pm, together with a friend, and we both ordered from the daily menu. I myself ordered a grill steak together with vegetables and fries, asking the waitress to serve it with only few fries but instead more vegis. She confirmed this, but when the plate arrived, there was a lot... More

Great little place in Zug, the steak served on a hot stone was really much better than what I was expecting. My wife had the Cordon Blue Zug style which was really nice as well. Staff was incredibly friendly and made us feel welcome!

This is a trasitional restaurant (Beiz) country style in downtown Zug. Very well known for its Beef served on a hot stone. First class meat. Also serve many other excellent dishes and beer and wine. Friendly staff and quick service. Well worth a visit.

The Baren does traditional Swiss/German food well. Think Wiener Schnitzels, Cordon Bleu and other equally hearty fare. I also recommend the steak option which you can cook to your liking on a hot stone brought to your table. The decor is fairly rustic which inevitably adds to the surroundings. It's hard to be disappointed in restaurants like these, so go... More
