I loved this restaurant. I ate there twice during my stay in Chur. The first time I had a dish with three different servings of pasta. One had a pesto sauce, one a cream sauce, and the other a tomato sauce. It made for a coulourful presentation and was excellent. The second time I had a very nice pizza. It... More

4 of us ate here in June. The restaurant is bright and comfortable and not overcrowded. The menu was good but quite expensive for what you got - 4 main courses, one bottle of wine and water came to £150.

We went here for dinner and the only plus point was that it was the only restaurant close to our hotel still open for dinner. The service was nothing special- the waitress was surly. The food was also just ok- we had the rissotto and the pasta with tomato sauce. The pasta was good but way too spicy. The rissotto... More

The head waiter was very rude and unprofessional. The salad came with old stale croutons and no salad dressing. When told to the waiter that the croutons were stale he accused me of picking a fight. Then when i asked him to ask the chef how old they were i was told several days. He said croutons are never fresh... More

We ate here 1 night. The menu displayed outside suggested it served solely pasta and pizza, but there was a much wider range of fish and meat dishes available. It was tasty, with friendly service, and not too expensive by Swiss prices.
