I was referred to Lapin as a place that I could get Röschti, that wonderful large portion of hash browned potatoes with cheese and an egg but I couldn't find it anywhere on the menu. They had a very interesting vegetable plate that I did order, with roasted brussle sprouts in a sweet glaze, homemade spatzel, sweet purple cabbage, chestnuts... More

I would like to say big 'thank you' to the staff of this restaurant. My boyfriend and I visited this place for birthday evening. There was nobody, except for us, so service was very fast.

it was the first time at Lapin. The food was in the price range of the usual Swiss Game Dishes. Service was very nice and friendly. The food even came pretty fast. The piece of meat was a bit small and the only reason for the 4* rating. Taste was just great and quality as well. It is a traditional... More

We stayed in hotel De La Paix for 2 nights and we had the best breakfast there ever. we weren't around during the day to try out the lunch and dinner menus but I am sure that would be awesome too. Special mention for the berry yoghurt with granola and the freshly baked croissants they were to die for.

In a city with a lot of tourist focused restaurants that offer perhaps a Disney version of local culture, the Lapin gives the impression of being genuine. At the time of our visit there seemed to be a number of locals among the clientele. The service was good and the food tasty, and although we weren't tempted by the local... More

Grüezi thank you for your time to send us a review. We are sorry you did not like the mistchratzerli. It seams rather strange to serve only wings and legs, but it is the case that the mistchratzerli also named "Stubenkücken" are small. We apologize, if there has been to much salt on the meat.
