This place got recommended to us by 2 different locals, very glad we went and tried it out! Food was excellent and service was spot on. Definitely not cheap, but well worth it! Great food and wine options, lovely setting would go back!

Setting: A bit dark, burgundy red walls with what appears to be Chinese scripture and staff dressed in black. The staff themselves very friendly, but hey me and the Mrs were with one of their mothers that night so the greetings may have been a little warmer than one may expect. But not out of place. The Starter: Went with... More

I was really wondering how is the fusion kitchen. Whatever it means, this restaurent gave us an excellent dinner, very international, and really excellent, tasty mango. I would strongly recommend it to anybody. It is not cheap, but nothing is cheap in Switzerland......

After long hard research to find a 'special' location for our family Christmas eve dinner we were let down terribly. Although the starter (duck spring rolls) were delicious we had to wait over 2 hours before the main course was served. The service was terribly slow and once the food arrived the lamb (2 portions) had to be returned to... More
