We had a business lunch here, food was good and service excellent. Good place to go for a quick lunch.
Have not tried it in an evening - not sure I would do that, atmosphere business like.
They do specials at lunchtime, which are inexpensive by Swiss standards

Genuinely confused by all the positive comments. Want Service with a smile? You won't get it here. Waitress left restaurant unattended several times to go for a smoke. At best the food is average but on the positive side atleast it is freshly cooked.

Our local representative took us to this lovely restaurant for a business dinner. You could really sense the tradition: the railway workers used to eat there in the old times and that's why you have all kind of train related material in the restaurant. Very nice!

The about the food: I had the Wienersnitzel made of veal. I have to say that it was the best snizel ever! Typically they are dry but this was crispy but juisy - and very tasty indeed! Can recommend. Couple of local beers and that's about it ;-)

The price was actually 41 CHF only for the snitzel which I found quite expensive. It was the most expensive portion on the list.

The service was OK but don't expect anything like in fine dining...

I stopped by with some colleagues as it is close to my working place. There is nothing special in this place. Menu is like in some other places around. Average Swiss prices and average services. Good for a quick business lunch.

...had lunch here. Quick service, good, solid and fresh food. I'd go again.
Need to reserve a table during work days though...fills up quickly as lot's of businesses around and across the tracks.
