My family (couple with an adult son) has been going to this restaurant since 2003, mostly once a year and appreciates the attractively furnished restaurant in the town center of Olten. The front section is decorated in a brasserie style, the back one is classically styled. Actually I prefer eating in the brasserie, but the noise level can be high... More

Wonderful experience for our birthday dinner. We were sitting in the bistro part. Very attentive staff and delicous food. Not a bargain, but worth the price.

Four of us came for a business dinner on a weeknight. Had a lovely bottle of wine, Nüsslisalate and a Kalbsschnitzel from the fresh sheet, and a bit of chocolate cake for dessert. Service was professional, restaurant was comfortable and cozy.

We've been here once a year for the last nine years with a group of 20 people! The food and drinks including wine are great and the prices fair! We enjoyed the very nice atmosphere and great service and will come back for sure! Try the Saltim Bocca and the Crème Brulée;-) Go there and enjoy!!!

I appreciate the atmosphere and the good wine available also by glass. And the old photographs are always again fascinating.

Have used this restaurant several times for business functions. Always a good experience with food and service. It's located on a quiet road across from a church. Parking is never easy and reservations are usually needed here. Prices are a little high but you can be sure you function will not suffer any bad surprises here.

If you want to evade a bit from the swiss cusine, the restaurant Salmen is what you need. Genuine food very well cooked and presented merged with a very professional behavior of all the staff. The price is undoubtly high but compared to what you eat and to Swiss standard is absolutely fair. Strongly recommended reservation in quite advance.
