Once again had dinner at this quaint little restaurant,,and again it exceeded our expectations. Both my wife and I had very "swiss" european entrees. Both dinners were as if we were sitting in a quality restaurant in Europe...just excellent. I've not had better in Switzerland!...More

This place is the best way to go for fine dining in Sidney. The food was great, service was quietly efficient and effective and the ambience was very good

Great service Top quality food with a creative chef to match. Pricey, but well worth it. Reservations usually wise. I've seen them have to turn people away.

European experience and great Swiss specialties. Tables are lined down two side. Friendly staff and patrons. Food is always consistently very good. There are two window tables - reservations usually required.

Surprisingly good dinner. We were surprised to find a huge variety of Schnitzel; pork, chicken even beef, with a huge variety of sauces. The spatzel was the best we've had. The ambiance is a bit run down. Don't expect fancy, but the food and service...More

Hi there! Yes they usually are open Christmas day, but have a set menu. You really need reservations for that day and now would probably get you a table for Christmas. Don't leave it too late!
