The outdoor seating area is lovely. I am a big bone marrow fan and was delighted to see it cut the long way.

The Restaurant itself need some renovation, nevertheless I am totally surprised by the cousine! Homestyle. We had many dishes in the last months, all very delicious and home style. They were all nicely presented. The staff is very family style and gives us the feeling to be home. During sunny days there is also a wonderful garden! If you are... More

This restaurant serves nice meals in a typical Swiss style restaurant, where you share a long table with other guests. Food is nice. You can choose past for around 20 CHF or a fresh fish, steak etc. for around 40 CHF. The garden is outstanding, especially on a nice summer day.

Reasonable prices (for Switzerland), around 100CHF for a starter, two main, dessert, four glasses of wine and coffee. Disappointing melon salad followed by great fish and eggplant. Very good atmosphere in the garden. I would come back.

The choice of wines isn't huge, but what I've tried so far (Spanish and Ticino) has been very good and not too hard on the wallet. I'm looking forward to going there in... More
