“Loved it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2011

I ate here for the first time, with a large group of people and the food was excellent. I had the veal "Zurich Style" which I love. It was accompanied by rosti. The dessert, which was a special that day was described to me as hot apple pie with ice cream, but what I got was 3 "donuts" of fried apple - sort of like churros, only apple inside. Not what I expected but it was still good. Loud in the dining room - my only problem.

“Excellent food and relaxed ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2011

Great food, innovative without being pretentious. The main course was the highlight. We had the herb-crusted monkfish, served on a bed of creamy savoy cabbage, accompanied by shallots cooked in red wine and a delicate spinach roulade. Unusual, but superb combination. The salads were less exciting (grilled, marinated vegetables with mixed leafy salad leaves and balsamic dressing), but good. Loved the desert I had. Pumpkin seed and blueberry (? and other berrys?) icecream/parfait triangles served with a tangy redcurrent coulis. Fabulous! We thought that he must have a Thermomix to make the parfait. The other desert was just ok: white chocolate and almond tiramisu. Sounds good, but it was rather sweet and the amaretto was a bit overpowering.

Service was fine, but perhaps a little slow. They apologized for the delay in the kitchen by bringing extra wine, on the house. Nice gesture.

A place to keep on our list.

Nice food, nice ambience but a bit hard to find. A bit pricy.

The setting is quite nice. The food can sometime be a little too experimental so stick to the more traditional French food.
