We enjoyed a lovely evening with a group of friends. The menu offers traditional Swiss (e.g. Cordon-bleu) as well as international dishes, all prepared with care. The vegan/vegeterian choice is also nice, the lukewarm veggie-salad was amazing - simple but so tasty.

I got there with some collegues. It is a quite high-level restaurant, and the food is good, but with little quantities and high prices. For rich ones!

A large group of us went here, and I think we were looked after very well all in all. I do think that perhaps the 'set menu' was a little bit plain, but st the same time there was quite a wide choice and most...More
