San Gottardo Ospizio Albergo

Reviewed By Globetrotteuse263 - Stuttgart, Germany

This Review is about the restaurant in the hotel, not the self service!
Food is extremely nice, it is typical Swiss mountain cuisine. I can recommend the Ticino soup and the homemad apple pie very much. Nice service, very welcoming and the place has a cosy atmosphere.
Don't expect haute cuisine nor chic furnishings, it's a mountain place and just perfect. Time stands still there!

Grotto laghetti Audan

Reviewed By fabietti69 - Canton of Ticino, Switzerland

In una cornice meravigliosa, fuggiti dall'afa cittadina, ci siamo ritrovati a pescare nel laghetto. A pranzo, abbiamo gustato le pietanze del grotto. Piatti semplici, ma di buona qualità. Personale, sia del grotto che della pesca sportiva, gentile e disponibile.
Prezzi nella media per la nostra realtà ticinese.

Tremola

Reviewed By Gh0stly - London, United Kingdom

Whilst waiting for me to cycle up St. Gothard's Pass, my wife happened to find the Tremola restaurant and we had lunch there. It's an absolutely amazing place - they have basically converted a ww2 bunker into a hotel and very nice restaurant. Felix the chef was incredibly accommodating and we had a long chat with the owner too. If you want to go somewhere with good food and in a completely different venue, then I'd thoroughly recommend it. As a hint, if you eat there (and ask very nicely), you might get a guided tour which is absolutely fascinating. A lot of the original equipment is still there (but hidden away in back rooms) and it's amazing to see how it all used to work. A little gem we are very glad we happened upon.

Grotto Pozzasc

Reviewed By Biddy_10 - Geneva

Very typical grotto where the hot meals center around Polenta in all kind of different forms. We had the one with Spezzatino which was very tasty. The salad was truly fresh and the local wine just perfectly complemented the meal. Young service personnel who does a fine job.

Stopped here on a drive into the Alps. Glad we did. It is a small place with maybe 3 employes. It appears to be a local ristorante. No one spoke any English, but no problem. Excellent , I mean really excellent food. Food was delivered to the table by the stero type Italian grandma.

Reviewed By Archaeobuff - Sydney, Australia

We had a dinner in this hotel’s fine restaurant. It was traditional Swiss German fare and lots of it. I ordered the ganzer portion of Wiener Schnitzel without realising it did not mean large portion but actually two whole servings. I did my best to much hilarity. I did learn a salutary lesson. The service and food was very good. It was packed out.

Toutoune

Reviewed By arturserrano - Tromso, Norway

We ate at this restaurant every evening of our stay. The staff became friends. The food was excellent. Prices were almost considered affordable by us, although this was Switzerland.
We recommend the 2 or 3 course menu option. They serve generous portions in the set menu option.
The house wine was really nice.
The waiter could speak to me in Swiss German, German, English, Portuguese and Italian.
A family based restaurant with an extremely welcoming and pleasant atmosphere where everyone seemed to feel at home.
