Went quite a few time over the past few weeks, took the fondue moitié-moitié (50 %/50% gruyères and Valentin de gruyères) ..... just delicious. On top of this good fondant, nice service, good ambience! Nice place to recommend!

I visited with a large group of colleagues - it was dark when we arrived, but I suspect that the view is good, and on a warm day the outside seating must be a nice place to eat. We had a fixed menu but the...More

The restaurant is kinda pleasant, although the hall inside seems a little worse for wear. There are two or three good wines, apparently, but we haven't been offered the wine card. Also, if you come before 6pm only a very limited selection of dishes is...More

The Tobelhof is like an oasis: a place to meet friends, celebrate a birthday, arrange to see business colleagues and always, to eat well. In summer, you can sit out in the sunshine or beneath the shady trees in the garden. In winter, you'll be cosy in one of the farmhouse parlours.
