Forget the rush around you and dive into the joyful sides of the Mediterranean lifestyles, paired with the culinary virtuosity of the South. Our little gem is located within the heart of Zurich in a landmarked building, owned by the city itself. The tall rooms and the big window front, the chandeliers, the dark wooden furniture as much as the tastefully arranged seating options convey an unmistakable professional appreciation for our guests and our work. The members of our young and versatile cooking crew are avid adepts of Iberian and Mediterranean lifestyles and know how to spoil the palate with their seasonal creations. On warm days, our clientele often takes the seating opportunity on our big patio where our attentive service and the warm summer breeze let you dwell in the moments of the summer in the city.
