In fine weather the terrace is a must, if you have not reserved, make sure to get there early to have one of the best places overlooking the river. (Before 12:00 for lunch!) The midday menus are very good and reasonably priced. The wines are good, but not cheap. The personnel was friendly, service was rapid. A good place if... More

Fribourg was in the middle of a heatwave when we were there, so there was no chance of eating on the outside terrace overlooking the water :-( However they found us a table in a pleasant airy upstairs room, so at least we weren't bothered by smokers, as is sometimes the case when you eat outside. We went around 7:00pm... More

Charming restaurant with nice food and a good wine selection. We had salad for starters, followed by the veal kidneys which were excellent. I had taken rice to go with it but it was dry as if it had been left over from the previous day. The tarte tatin was excellent and the creme caramel, too. The wine selection is... More

This restaurant has a great outdoor balcony with a view on the river and the magnificent medieval city of Fribourg. The organization is clearly not ready to cook for more than 10 people or so... We arrived at 19h00 and waited until 20h30 to finally get the food we ordered, no doubt we were hungry but finally were very disappointed... More

We were 3 people visiting for dinner. The food was ok except for the rösti valais which was excellent! Thé Wine selection on glass was very good in terms of nr and quality. All could be tasted before selection! Thé service and atmosphere was great. Very proactive attitude! Would recommend anyone to visit when in fribourg.

Excellent beef and salmon tartares - best we have had in Switzerland - served on sunny terrace with great view over Sarine river and medieval city. Other plates going by looked good too and most were scraped clean when cleared away. Amiable but slow service on very busy evening terrace. Reservations for a terrace table a good idea.

Charming Swiss restraurant with great views and very good food. Weather permitting, sit outside and take in the small town beauty. If weather does not permit, take it inside -- food is just as good and servce is, well, Swiss. The dessert offers a local favorite -- maringue with double swiss cream -- worht the trip alone. Have fun and... More
