POHO Wine Cellar was attached to the POHO Dining Lounge and Weggiser Stuebli. It has a rustic look, a wine cellar rustic look just like its name.

But I always prefer to go to the POHO Dining Lounge. We only ate at the POHO Wine Cellar, but not once too, as there was no table available at the POHO Dining Lounge especially that we did not reserve a table before going to Post Hotel.

For wine lovers, they might like the POHO Wine Cellar rustic look. So, it really depends on one’s taste.

The ambiance was just different from that of the POHO Dining Lounge. It also cannot be compared to the Swiss look of Weggiser Stuebli.

While Weggiser Stuebli has a small area and POHO Dining Lounge has a spacious area, I cannot describe the POHO Wine Cellar.

Nevertheless, the food they served at the POHO Wine Cellar was like an extension of what they served at the POHO Dining Lounge.

We had Chateaubriand steak at the POHO Wine Cellar. We did not order any desserts anymore as Chateaubriand was more than enough considering that we had two servings each. I just ordered Baileys afterwards.

As of this writing, the POHO Wine Cellar has the following opening hours until March 31, 2011.

The opening hours until March 31, 2011 are as follows:
Monday and Tuesday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Wednesday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.

POHO Dining Lounge is cozy and modern. I like it, and so, we try to go back there when we feel like going there.

We went to POHO Dining Lounge for dinner but this time I ordered a five-course (5-course) menu. Most of the time, every time we ate at POHO, we would order a three-course (3-course) menu or four-course (4-course) menu only but not in this instance.

This was not the first time that we ate at POHO Dining Lounge. When we first went for dinner at POHO Dining Lounge, I noticed that it was already a little bit different. The interior of the restaurant was like funky.

The wall was painted with green. The chairs, the small sofas as well as some sort of the swivel chairs were light green in color and there were small sofas too in violet.

It was confirmed when the food started to arrive. For example, the soup was served in a glass not a soup bowl, and the rice was inside a glass container.

Again, our dinner was superb. The fish was good and the duck breast was tender. Everything was actually good.

As of this writing as it is still Winter, the POHO Dining Lounge is not open on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

The opening hours until March 31, 2011 are as follows:
Monday and Tuesday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Wednesday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.

We went for a six-course (6-course) menu dinner in Weggiser Stuebli in POHO or Post Hotel before the year 2010 ended. We tried to book a table at the POHO Dining Lounge but it was fully booked.

We opted for Weggiser Stuebli instead of POHO Wine Cellar for a change. We especially asked if we could have the six-course (6-course) menu at Weggiser Stuebli because Weggiser Stuebli has a different motif than POHO Dining Lounge.

According to POHO’s Website, “SWISSNESS IS TRENDY! Rustic, down-to-earth and authentically Swiss is how things go in the Weggiser Stübli. Hearty fare is served in view of the time-honoured ancestral gallery – from Bratwurst over Bauernrösti up to cheese Fondue.”

Well, POHO Dining Lounge said that we could have the six-course (6-course) menu dinner at Weggiser Stuebli.

We have been in Weggiser Stuebli but it was our first time to have a six-course (6-course) menu in this restaurant.

Our food was sumptuous, and regarding meat, everything was simply tender. Our dinner was definitely great.

As of this writing, Weggiser Stuebli opens daily from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.

We have eaten in Sparks Restaurant a few times already but only when there was a special occasion.

Sparks Restaurant has been awarded with 14 Gault Millau points and I would say that it really has a good swiss kitchen. We normally had a 4-course menu and it was always enough.

The staff in Sparks were friendly and accommodating just like in Annex Restaurant. There were at least 2-3 persons attending to us.

I would like to mention here as I forgot to mention it when I wrote something about Gourmet Annex Restaurant that when we were in Annex there were at least 3-4 persons taking care of us.

We would probably go back to this restaurant because it was cozy, quiet and the food was really good.

Every time we went there, there was always someone playing a harp. It was really lovely.

As of this writing, Sparks Restaurant is open daily from 7:00 a.m. but early booking is required.

Braui Restaurant Brauiplatz Hochdorf

Switzerland

We went for a gourmet menu dinner in Braui restaurant last month. Braui restaurant is located in Brauiplatz near the “Kulturzentrum Braui” in Hochdorf.

I really had no expectations about the restaurant because I did not ask about it. I realized later that it was actually awarded with 15 Gault Millau points in 2009.

The staff welcomed us graciously as they know some of our friends. Then they brought us to our table.

For a start, we were served with squid carpaccio. That was really great.

After the starter, we were invited at the kitchen. I was really surprised. It was my first time to be invited in the kitchen considering that I have had dinner in a fine restaurant too even before Braui restaurant.

We of course met the man in charge, Chef Werner Tobler, a top cuisinier and already had written a book. He told us what he prepared, some fish and lamb for the main course, and we agreed. It sounded good but two of our friends preferred beef than lamb.

When we went to the kitchen, I especially brought my camera and they did not object when I took some photos. The kitchen was very clean. I was quite impressed.

After that, we were served with soup, then another appetizer, a liver tiramisu, then another soup. For the main course, we were served with fish and lamb. After that, we had desserts, at first some melted cheese, then sorbet, and lastly, brownies with so many extras.

I really thought that it was the last. But no, I was again surprised when a platter was brought with chocolate mousse, cookies, and some sort of caramel cream a la panna cotta. I was like overwhelmed.

And all the time, during the dinner, we drank different wines with the soups, starters, main courses and desserts that we had. We had white wines and red wines especially from Mattmann.

And the staff that served us were really very nice and accommodating.

The gourmet menu dinner was awesome. We started at past 8:00 p.m. and we finished at just around 1:00 a.m. We definitely had a great time.

Gourmet Annex Restaurant Park Hotel Weggis

Switzerland

It has been a long time since we went to this restaurant in Park Hotel Weggis. It was a special day, so we thought of trying it out.

Gourmet Annex Restaurant or simply called Annex was already awarded with 16 Gault Millau points when we went there. I did not know that it was also awarded with 1 Michelin Star.

The food was definitely good and I never thought that a 4-course dinner menu would suffice. We all know that they serve food in small quantity in a fine dining restaurant, nevertheless, I had enough.

I just cannot remember the exact names of what we ate. I was not able to take photos of the white wine that we drank.

The food was reasonable with regard to price but the wines were quite expensive.

Well, according to Park Hotel Weggis Website, “The Restaurant Annex Wine List is a wine lover’s dream come true. The award-winning list of about 2’600 wine selections is a consistent winner of The Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence”.

As of this writing, Annex Restaurant is open daily from 6.30 p.m. It is also open at midday on Sundays and public holidays. It is closed on Tuesday between April and October, and on Monday and Tuesday from November to March. Early booking is required here as it gets fully booked fast.
