We visited this restaurant on a previous visit to Brig in 2003 and found it to be small and cosy with great food and service.

So I went out for a late diner with a friend and the food is very good and the portions are fantastic. Totally recommend it.

We visited this restaurant based on reviews on Trip Advisor. We're not sure why everyone rated this so well but we found it to be very ordinary or we ordered the wrong food. We all travel, eat out regularly and don't normally complain but we do wonder where everyone was coming from in recommending this restaurant. It sounds from the... More

We used other trip advisor reviews to choose this restaurant. They were right! It is great. I had a salad and filet steak and my husband had a valaisian meat tray. The service was great and the food was delicious! We so enjoyed our meal. Stop in and enjoy your meal.

This was at least the third or fourth time we've been to this restaurant; whenever we're staying in Brig, we make a beeline for it. The steaks are great, the lamb is luscious and the prices not too horrendous (for Switzerland). Try and get a table upstairs if you can because it's rustical and cosy in winter, with the fire...

The prices are a little higher than the average tourist hotel, but the fact that the restaurant was packed on an average Thursday evening lead us to believe it may be worth it. The Deer and Bison steaks were amazing quality, and grilled to perfection. (the smokey taste is intentional and goes fantastically with the herb-butter they serve on the... More

After a great mountain traverse, I was craving for a Schnipo, or schnitzel mit Pommesfriet (veal escalope with fries). And yummy it was. This traditional dish often is greasy, but not at Eidgenosse. My friend enjoyed a nice steak and together we shared a Ripasso, from the excellent wine selection. Friendly staff, an absolute no-brainer. Go here and you won't... More

meat and service good, I prefer side order on a separate plate but OK What annoyed me a bit was the smoky taste of the meat. Obviously the fire was not ready
