This restaurant just 'called to me'. The smells in the air outside the restaurant were amazing and it seemed to be a place for local clientele. The prix fixe lunch included soup or salad and a choice of 4 entrees. The pumpkin soup was Michelin star worthy. Swiss meatloaf with fresh veggies and pommes frites. A lovely owner to takes... More

Had an early evening family meal which was enjoyed by all. Warm and spacious interior with helpful staff. The Viennese schnitzel was outstanding and it will be truly to have it again on my next visit.

4 of us had dinner here on the first night, all left happy and full. The tartar was much better than the rather bland mushroom salad. We all had different main courses and all the plates were cleared. Really pleasant staff ensure a quality dining experience, highly recommended.

Every course was perfectly presented and scrumptious. The atmosphere was lovely. There were many local families eating and playing cards. The hostess was great but only spoke German. The... More

We dined at the Restaurant Marktplaz on a Friday evening with live dulcimer music played by a young Appenzeller boy. The music was wonderful, but the cuisine was fabulous. This small restaurant with about 11 tables is highly decorated in the local architectural style. The owner and another served table and were very prompt, efficient and friendly. The Gemeuseteller (vegetable... More

Very cosy place with traditional furniture. The owner promotes art, there is always some sort of exhibition. Food is also enjoyable and menu is changing according to season. Definitely the best traditional place in town, must visit for visitors!
