Let me be honest once more: I did not want to sit at this reaturant, cause it looks exactly how a tourist trap should look.
But the grandma convinced me and the rest of the crew to take some rest and having at least a glass of wine here ... and so it was the full meal.
Good choice, nothing you will dream for the rest of your life, but pretty ok.
Favorite Dish: Beef tartare !!
The Restaurant of the Hotel Rheinfels has a huge balcony above the Rhine and an outstanding good kitchen, specialised for fish food. But you have to pay for the nice view ? it also has outstanding prices for the meals.
Favorite Dish: Fresh fishes, what they got in the morning from the fishermen
Eating out in Switzerland can be a very expensive affair, especially so in a posh tourist destination like Stein am Rhein. Fortunately, there are some cheap(er) alternatives for those on a budget. One example is Inferno, the fast food stand next to the bridge. You can get a wide range of fast food here, including kebab, pizza, chicken, and burgers. You can eat inside in a diner-like atmosphere, or outside on the small patio. They also deliver -- order by phone or even online (Limited delivery hours, CHF 20 minimum order).
Favorite Dish: I had the Dürüm Döner made from lamb, while Sara had a chicken kebab. It was quick, filling, and tasty.
After asking around about quick, cheap places to eat, we found our way to the Imbiss und Take Away Zum Tiergarten, a fast-food joint offering the usual array of Imbiss fare. Most notable was the large number of locals who were enjoying a meal and banter with the owner. Tourists are most welcome, and both staff and locals are more than happy to engage you in conversation to "Practice speaking English" (not that they need much help). We enjoyed a few minutes of lively conversation while our meals were being prepared, then took our meals to go for a more quiet riverside bench. Tasty, cheap and fun.
Favorite Dish: I had some tasty Swiss-style bratwurst and bread. The owner told a long story that involved the local police chief (himself enjoying a bratwurst a few meters away) about bread being mandatory with bratwurst. Sara had a Greek salad, and we both split an order of pommes frites. Yummy.
