Burgers, fish & chips and beer

The staff are really friendly, the burgers, country chips and fish were all tasty. Theres also a good choice of beers. The place is dog friendly and just at the edge of the forrest which leads up to Uetliberg which is great for dog walking, biking etc. In the summer its got a nice beer garden.

Small (not baby friendly due to lack of space), unfriendly staff, expensive (even for Swiss standards - CHF 130 for 2 sodas, 2 beers and 4 classic burgers).

I go often with family (babies) and the place is children friendly. I strongly recommend brunch time on weekend with reservation in advance. There's parking (private and public), green area to walk around and awesome terrace for summer time. Best dishes Benedict eggs with out a doubt

This restaurant was indeed a pleasant surprise for us. The environment was very nice-although it was december and we could not sit in the beergarden outside which I assume would be great in summer. The waiters were really cool, easy going and relaxed which actually feels good and makes you also relaxed but also happy to assist and give tips.... More

Great food and big portions. Very nice outdoor area in Summer. Family friendly and probably the most interesting beer choice in Switzerland. A little out of the way but definitely worth a visit.

I was absolutely amazed by the beer selection. If you are looking for something a little different from the standard Euro fizz this is the place. Fine range of artisan beers from around the world which could suit any pallet. The food is also great. Traditional Americana with good portions. One word of warning, if you plan on having a... More

Very good burgers, actually the best burger I have ever had. It's also great because it has a wide selection of beers and great service. Cannot wait to go back! Easily accessible by car. You can also sit outside if the weather is nice.

I visit Switzerland a couple of times a year as I have family living there. I suggested going out for brunch so my son suggested coming here. As a vegetarian I often struggle to find restaurants with enough choice to make it interesting, but this place did not disappoint. The building and setting of this restaurant was great despite its...
