I went to Rolf's on account of the famous bridge entrance. This is a beautiful sight to behold, as you enter the establishment. The hotel itself sits on a sort of rocky gorge that offers spectacular views. There is an option of sitting on the...More

The view is magnificent. The hanging bride one and only. And that is almost all. Food is tasty, but be careful what you order. If you order Veal, unless you ask, they will not tell you through the menu that includes pork also. Service is...More

On a public holiday you'd imagine that there would be ready for a busy day. Instead only 2 waiters were working - and the service was slow and grumpy. We ordered 2 sides of chicken wings which instead of being grilled or fried, where stewed...More
