The menu is selective, you receive top quality food and very good service. Extensive wine list but mostly very, very expensive. Details are all very well cared for and the overall atmosphere is very relaxing.

Had the filet of beef that was tender and cooked to perfection. Escargot was delicious and dinner was topped off with a raspberry sorbet with pomegranate and chocolate/caramel sauce that was to die for!

Zum alten Stephan is my favourite restaurant in Solothurn. It combines a cosy atmosphere with high level Swiss cuisine, which is a combination of traditional local specialities with a french inspiration. On a hot summer day you can chose the shadow of the little terrace....More

Outstanding chef! Unbeatable watermelon soup with passion fruit mousse and steamed shrimps (!) Juicy meat! Great products, to start with, associated with great cooking! Prices consistent with a usual Swiss style, not that higher than standard restaurants...but you gain so much higher quality! Highly recommended!

The most important upfront, the Gourmet restaurant does not exist anymore as the previous will-rated cook (Andy Zaugg) left end of 2015. The restaurant "Zum Alten Stephan" does now only consists of the "Stadtbeiz" (= city pub). We lived in Solothurn about a decade ago...More
