Typical Swiss Restaurant

This restaurant serves nice meals in a typical Swiss style restaurant, where you share a long table with other guests. Food is nice. You can choose past for around 20 CHF or a fresh fish, steak etc. for around 40 CHF. The garden is outstanding, especially on a nice summer day.

Reasonable prices (for Switzerland), around 100CHF for a starter, two main, dessert, four glasses of wine and coffee. Disappointing melon salad followed by great fish and eggplant. Very good atmosphere in the garden. I would come back.
