Segreto is the best restaurant I've been! Very nice atmosphere with a phantasyic service! The team pays attention to each and every detail to make you feel good and bring a special night. They propose a surprise menu, where several meals are served without prior selection (they only ask if you have restrictions or allergies). The food is gourmet: beautifully... More

I have been here on a couple of occasions and it is not quite what you expect. The service is fair and the food is good. The problem is really the climate in the restaurant I do not understand why so warm!

Was invited out for dinner and taken to this unusual location...our meal was fabulous, the "cherry foie gras" unforgettable, the veal melt in your mouth with some novel combinations that complimented the meat. The setting: you'd think you are in Tuscany in the middle of office/residential area...amazing! The service was excellent and the visit to the wine cellar in company... More

After my wife's initial Shock about us eating at The Captain's Table (in The Kitchen!), we realized that we'd hit the jackpot regarding seating.

This night my wife and myself dinned in Ristorante Segretto in St. Gallen , Switzerland. It was an unforgettable experience. The food was unique, elegantly balanced, presented in a beautiful way. The service was excellent, highly professional but also intimate and very very pleasant. The chef of cuisine, a very talented, albeit a modest young man, Martin Benninger, generated masterpieces:...

This was simply the best restaurant I have eaten at in my life thus far. Not a simple crack emerged in either the menu or the execution. There were elements of whimsy, while not distracting from the overall experience. The staff was accommodating, while allowing you to be intimate and feel special at the same time. A truly talented chef... More

The food was expensive but good. The atmosphere a little too pretentious for our taste. There are plenty of good restaurants within St. Gallen. No need to drive to the outskirts of the city to find a good one (15 minutes by car from the city center) as is the case with this one. We will not be going back
