Great food in a fantastic setting

Apart from the beautiful decor and location, this restaurant caters for international food with a Swiss touch: great service. I had dinner there with my husband and daughter and we had no regrets.

Food is good and nicely presented but sometimes unduly sophisticated. First class the choice of wines. The atmosphere is elegant and cozy. Price a liitle bit too high.

A luxury place in a five star hotel, but still relativity decent price. Presentation is a catch in the eye and atmosphere is calm, romantic and a place to spend a few hours with your love one while tasting fine foods at Woods.

Took my wife for a birthday dinner and it was quite stiff and thought we got attentive service, the ability of the hotel to improvise was not that good. This seems set up for business meetings etc. not very personal.
