I was just amazed by the quality of meat prepared at this restaurant. We had tartar, steaks and fillets. It was so delicious and the wine was just fantastic. I definitely want to bring back my friends next time I come. A remarkable cuisine and a great place to dine with friends and family.

I have visited a lot of steak restaurants, but the "Ochsen Matzingen" is definitely at the absolut top rank regarding meat. Vegetarian should not even think about visiting..... The service is perfect, the location cosy and definitely not one of this large cold rooms. If you have a special occasion it's definitley the place to go.
