We found this little gem a few years ago & each time we have never been disappointed with the wonderful food, service & atmosphere. The menu features European staples such as Schnitzel (worth it to pay extra for the mushroom sauce & spaetzle) but also offers Filet Mignon, seafood & other meats. This time, my husband & I were joined... More

We stopped for an early lunch off the ferry. The food was good - we had crab cakes, quiche, bratwurst. But it was a bit pricey. Service was excellent. We had a toddler, which was ok earlier when nobody was there yet, but might have been too much if a lot of people were eating.

Our family group of four adults had full dinners and we shared two desserts. We all agreed that the food and service were excellent. The variety of European choices made it hard to choose what to have. We plan to return soon.

Kept waiting for nearly 1hr 15 mins, despite having pre - booked table for special event. On arrival, with minimal & inadequate explanation, food was nothing special. Edible, but then so is a Big Mac & that's a lot cheaper & quicker. Won't recommend or return.

I had an excellent meal here and was well treated even though it was a very busy night and I was a single traveler. The food and service were both excellent. I loved that there were diners who obviously come often and were greeted by name and treated like honoured guests by the staff. I sat next to a charming... More

We had a delicious dinner at the Bistro Suisse last night for our anniversary. Try the rosemary chicken with whipped potatoes - it's wonderful. The dessert sampler with three choices to share is a good choice after a big meal. Our plate included creme brule, lemon mousse and a flourless chocolate cake - so moist it melts in your mouth!...

We have dined here several times - both for lunch and for dinner. Never been disappointed in any way. The food is superb and the service is perfect. Leave your calorie counting behind and truly enjoy a wonderful meal. Be sure to make a reservation.
