Just finished our meal and it was thoroughly enjoyable - not too expensive and although not outstanding the food was pleasant and I did clean my plate. Friendly service and a wonderful location in a quiet street - quiet but yet full of atmosphere

Cozy place in old town. Delicious cheese fondue and a lot of choices. Fondue bourguignonne with meat is also very good with home made chips. Good wine and service. I strongly recommend it.
