“Authentic Emmental Gasthof with pleasantly moderate prices”

Gasthof zum Roten Thurm
Ranked #2 of 3 Restaurants in Signau
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 April 2018

In the middle of the idyllic Emmental area, the village of Signau still remains a hidden gem - rather quiet but with many impressive traditional houses. Zum Roten Thurm is one of them and embodies the typical Gasthof. The wooden dining room boasts a warm and relaxed atmosphere - very ‘’gemütlich’’.

The menu puts focus on traditional Swiss specialties and seasonal produce. As starter I celebrated spring with an asparagus soup - delicate and tasty. As main course I chose the house specialty: veal liver sautéed with onions and apples, and served with a rösti. Large and truly delicious portion, but not for the health-conscious! As sweet I indulged myself with the homemade crème caramel, which includes a hint of saffron: unconventional, yet wonderful idea.

Although Switzerland is known to be expensive, Zum Roten Thurm offers pleasantly moderate prices. The bill amounted to CHF70, which reflects excellent value for money.

Last advice: if you are tempted by the meringue for dessert, take only one portion and share. The guest next to me ordered one and it is truly gargantuesque!!
