When I called, one of the first things I asked was if they have a dress code. Being on a bike trip, the... read more

Each course brought a new taste sensation. The flavors were wonderful. Small courses did not leave you over-stuffed. Sitting on the terrace overlooking the Rhein was a treat on a beautiful summer evening. You will need to book early to snag such a table - perhaps even months in advance I am told.

Refined masterpieces of airy and fluffy sauces with levels of taste adventures in one bite. Exquiste surprises for amuse-bouche starters offered by the chef with fresh tastes and original creations I have not tasted before. The terrace overlooking the Rhine for the apéro was lovely but it was too changing weather to stay outside for the meal. Lunch inside a... More
