We were with family at restaurant for some drinks, beers and Apfelschorle. The waiter took our order. We needed to ask again for the icecream 🍦he seems to have forgotten. I didn't feel welcome as guest, just accepted.

Not sure how many reviews it will take until management decides to upgrade their apathetic staff. The food is also unexceptional. Avoid this restaurant.

Johanniter is a very good place for enjoying beers and local food. The restaurant also offers three, four different types of lunch menu at very competitive price. My friend and I went for porc cordon bleu, which was excellent!

We went to Johanniter Beer House in Zurich or lunch. The inside was not crowded and clean. They had three types of lunch menu suggestions and we chose one of them. Beer was good and service was fast. The decoration of the inside was authentic.
