Interesting choices of food, some delicious fish dishes, excellent waiting staff and a chef who was interested enough and confident enough to come out and talk to the diners about the food

The food is great and so is the wine. I already had a business dinner there; downstairs in the cellar. The service was then and this time excellent and very attentive. M

Great food. Right proportion. Excellent staff. Definitely worth trying. Quiet atmosphere easy going. They offer newspaper and complimentary bites while you wait. Unobtrusive but servers always there and smiling when you need them.

I had a very pleasant meal with a large group - about 12 of us. The meal was made most pleasant by the company and not the restaurant. However, the service was excellent and very attentive, which could be difficult when dealing with a larger group of people, particularly when some are speaking Swiss German and others are speaking English....

I have a histamin allergy. The waiter really cared. What the kitchen could offer wasn't a lot. So I had some pasta. That was good. The wine was very good. The home made ice cream had water cristals inside, a clear sign of wrong termperature during storage. I make my own ice cream and come from pastry chef family, so... More

For reasons unkown to me, it is mostly old guys with ties, elderly couples with manicured fingernails and occasional tourists that get there. Not logic. Beacuse you get absoluteley fine food there, great wines, fresh salads and top meat. In summer, there is an outside terrace. That all is situated in the midst of University institutes, but one minute away... More

There were little worms wiggling in the Cod of my dining partner. He found them after I'd finished my Cod. The waitress whisked it away and assured us that their fish often had worms and they were harmless and the fish was fresh. My friend asked for some more bread since he no longer had an entry. Alas, they never... More

The restaurant was full, the service was very helpful. However, i dont like whenn the posrtins are tiny. I had "Entenbrust" and it was very very small. So this restaurant is very good but not for those who is used to eat in the restaurant not just to enjoy the atmosphere.

After Champagne on the chilly but lovely terrace we moved into the authentically historic dining room which is quite small with tables well spaced and comfortable seating. The menu included in our sleep and dine package was outstanding and surprising given this being a hotel restaurant. The Italian maiître d'hôtel is talented and cheerful and the place is as romantic... More
