Those who stop at Brigitte & Olivier Claude’s restaurant for a bite to eat notice immediately that this place exudes a special flair. The former coach house located on the ancient lane Hauensteinstrasse has been a rest stop for travellers since the Middle Ages. Today the Pintli greets hikers, travellers passing through and gourmets who appreciate the culinary qualities of the establishment. The barn next to the coach house can be used for large celebrations in an unusual ambience; visitors can climb up to the castle ruins in a few minutes – the perfect destination for a little postprandial walk.

Fresh cuisine is celebrated in the Pintli. Seasonal delicacies are the strength of the chef de cuisine Olivier Claude. That’s why the establishment doesn’t have any speciality dishes. Whether it’s mozzarella, porcini mushrooms or boiled beef: the ingredients come from the region wherever possible. Claude has new ideas for every season. The Pintli is the place for gourmets and connoisseurs who love seasonal and natural cuisine.
