Great food, great place and friendly personnel. Really cosy atmosphere. The restaurant can also suggest a glass of wine matching each course

It's a small restaurant, recommend u made reservation before. Small choice of menu but everything is extremely well cooked.

The only reservation is that waitress and boss are too... More

The best meal and dining experience I've had on numerous visits to Switzerland. Modern but not pretentious, interesting use of top quality ingredients, generous servings. A lovely room and welcoming. Overall, a very nice surprise compared to some previous meals out in Switzerland. Not cheap compared to other places here, but a cut above and well worth it.

Really brilliant one o f best meals we have had in Switzerland even after 15 years. Not cheap but excellent value for money. I really recommend the wine choices with the dishes. Wines are all local and very good.
