2nd time I've eaten here, grabbing some lunch with some colleagues before my next meeting. I ordered the Cordon Blue which came with some garlicky spinach and fries. The Cordon Blue itself was incredibly salty but reasonable. The fries were undercooked and the spinach was inedible. Service was ok and with the number we had at short notice it was... More

Adequate meal, steak just big enough huge salad appetiser mountains of freshly cooked skinny fries. Cold beers went down well after a frazzled evening of travel. Lovely black and white tiles in bathrooms.

This is a great little restaurant / brasserie; a modern take on the excellent Bahnhofsbuffet that every Swiss railway station used to have. The food is very well prepared and served promptly. Good space between the tables and an excellent location for doing business. Great place to gossip in the corner and people-watch. Little bit pricey if you are not... More

Another good place to wait for the train. Classy lounge area, table service, and a good place to sit outside when the weather is warm.

Was staying in Hotel Victoria and hence decided to check this restaurant. Ordered some sort of fried fish for my dinner. Portion was kind of small as compared to other places I have tried.

My favourite place to sit, have a beer while waiting for a train and 'people watching'. Great location opposite the trams and the service is efficient.
