I have been lucky enough to dine here twice and both meals were the best i have ever had. Dining here is like going back in time and I felt like an royalty. Everything about the night was great. Don`t be stung by the post dinner coffee and drinks. 26chf for a pot.

I had a wonderful lunch. The splendid food was only equaled by the sincere and elegant service. Received a recommendation of an excellent bottle of Swiss wine. The room had an abundance of natural light and allowed for easy conversation. I only have superlatives for the entire experience-- well worth the price.

I have to say, even though I gave it a 4 out of 5, it was a very close 5. Apart from the areas of improvements I will mention now, it was a near perfect experience. The sommelier was very able, no doubt that. We got a wine that my wife would consider her favourite wine now. But as we... More

Full six course menu ... really delicious yet light tastes so not overly full despite the number of courses and other tasters served. Chef and his team really excelled ... great staff in the restaurant and good sommelier (excellent wide ranging wine list and good advice (as we did not know what we would get from the menu in advance))...

Peter Knogl received this year 19 Gault Millau points and that is than also what you taste. We enjoyed the well designed sequence of courses with well selected ingredients and surprising flavours supporting each other. The location is royal with a beautiful view on the Rhein.
