Tips for where to eat and recommended restaurants

Restaurant Anker - Appenzell Schlatt

As Swiss we must admit, we often get disappointed by quality and price of several restaurants in Switzerland. But this little jewel in the heart of the Appenzell has been such a revelation to us! As soon as you enter the beautiful location, the very charming host Myrtha Geiger awaits you with a big smile. If you walk down to the former stable, which has been transformed in such a wow...wow...wow location, you'll just be overwhelmed! The fantastic decoration, all created by Myrtha Geiger, changes about every 2 months.

When it comes to the menu, the fabulous journey continues. Chef cook Daniel Geiger, prefers local produces and everything is fresh, creative and mouth watering and believe it or not, to very fair prices. Spare some space for the delicious desserts as well...

We had such a wonderful and romantic time in a beautiful and unforgettable setting. Thanks a lot to Myrtha and Daniel, who showed us, that Switzerland still can keep up with other top kitchens around the world!
