The Restaurant Gruental is not exactly something you’d find by walking around town. Located near the Gemeinschaftszentrum in Wipkingen it is slightly outside the center, making it perfect if you’re looking for a meal without tourists and travelling salesmen. The vibe is a bit alternative and radiates cozy & comfy. The menu is right up my alley, small, changes often and obviously homemade. Starter was a livermousse with strawberry and watercress. Nice and smooth, but a bit too much on the chilies, still even the strawberries worked. The real fascination lay in the main course. Homemade ravioli, made after an old recipe from the canton of Graubünden accompanied with butter, cheese and some onions. The sweetness of the pears was mirrored by the onions and all encompassed in the velvety butter, quiet frankly I wasn’t expecting something this good. Dessert was a tarte tatin with whipped cream. Looking at the quality of the food, comparing it to the prices, the Restaurant Gruental deserves a recommendation. It is not necessarily the place for a romantic dinner yuppie style or a formal event, but the quality of the food makes it perfect for a nice getaway during your working week. On a side note, if the Gault Millau decides to give the Restaurant Helvetia 14 points (2010 Guide), then Gruental should be rated as well.
