The food tasted fine, the service was efficient, the atmosphere carefully cosy. We missed the heart in the entire experience. I would recommend it for business meals. Everything was perfect, but we did not get a lasting impression.

My wife and I had wonderful meals here. Though expensive, it was the best meals we had during our 10-day stay in Switzerland. It is a cozy and comfortable place where people speak in hushed tones.
