Restaurant Sonne, Amden
What would one do in Amden ? You take 5 healthy men, one real picky gourmet, call it a class reunion and decide to hike to Amden. Due to a sinus infection with a severe bronchitis (used to be called a cold) I opted to take the Postauto and head to the Restaurant Sonne without the physical exercise. Amden is a strange town, strewn across the hillside but with a spectacular view of the Walensee. The place has a nice terrace and a wintergarden where you can directly look out the window while dining (non-smoking) the simpler other part of the restaurant caters to smokers and seems to be the place to hang out on Saturday Evenings. If you didn’t get lucky on “Bauer sucht Frau” – this might be your chance. I had a mixed salad – standard, run-of-the-mill-fare. My main course was a jugged venison (?) with Spaetzli. It was no so okay, probably imported from Austria and didn’t taste very exciting. If you’re in here for a regular meal you’ll do okay, just don’t expect anything fancy. When going back down to Ziegelbruecke after 20:00, beware that only a small post bus and not a large postauto is driving down. Luckily we were only 6 out of 24.
Prices were okay – the high total originated in the hard to break drinking habits which surface when talking about the good old times during a reunion:
