Arrived before 8pm, the place was full and noisy and the only two waitresses nice, but clearly overwhelmed. Food was good though. Asking for side dishes took ages. Would recommend only when NOT full. Staff can’t cope

As a swiss citicen, I like this restaurant, cause it is truly amazing, the cheese (moitie-moitie) is spicy and delicious, they even have the best Kirsch, service is friendly the only part which you have to be know; the price. everything else is just perfect.
