Our offers & specials
Diversity under one roof!
The Erststock restaurant in the Metropol is one of the most beautiful addresses in the city with a view over the modern Bahnhofsplatz. The seasonally changing menu plays with local influences and city classics such as the St. Gallen bratwurst. The well-coordinated team pampers our guests down to the smallest detail - whether for a business lunch or a romantic dinner for two. The wine list features many classics, as well as small and sometimes still unknown products from renowned wineries.
At Bistro & Bar, people meet in St. Gallen for coffee, aperitifs and conversation. Here we are neither stylish nor fussy, but relaxed, lively, friendly and honest. Enjoy small, fine dishes from the daily changing menu and the view of the hustle and bustle on St. Gallen's Bahnhofplatz. In the Bistro & Bar you can experience the city life in St. Gallen already in the morning with a fragrant coffee and croissants or in the evening sun with a cool aperitif.
In our newly designed beer garden we are urban, in the middle of the life of the Bahnhofplatz. Everyone meets here after work or an excursion in the region. Enjoy a fine Schützengarten beer from the oldest brewery in Switzerland just as the monks of the Gallus monastery did around 820. Share the table with the locals and reflect on the day.
A heart for nature
The St.Gallen Bratwurst is a quality product that is produced in our local butcher's shop with great attention to detail. The speciality was first mentioned in a document in 1438 in the statutes of the St.Gallen butchers' guild. This mention also includes the first basic recipe; veal, bacon, spices and fresh milk. The milk gives the sausage its incomparable white colour. Since then, the butchers in the city have continued to refine the recipe.
For the local butchers, however, one thing is certain: the selection and quality of the raw materials are decisive for the excellent quality of the end product.
