I have been to this restaurant twice. I have to admit I am partial to the architecture of an old factory setting being used as a modern day restaurant or a place of residents. Just to give you an example. The old smoke stack (not in operation I believe) is standing right next to the roof patio, which is well decorated and nice place outdoors to eat. It may sound funny but it does add a bit of industry charm when you are outside enjoying your meal during the evening. The patio is well shaded by mechanical means if needed. There is no need to explain the indoor decorations. Not too much and not to little. The right balance was found.
The service is wonderful. You are greeted as you should be. As an outsider/visitor of the city, you notice how they treat there regulars as well. I think this is important. First of all, when the regular/local customers keep returning, then the quality is stable. Bad news travels fast, but in this case nothing but good news. And because it is a favorite of the locals, you should make reservations, just to be on the safe side.
The menu is small with a changing menu special (appetizer, main dish and dessert) for around 50 CHF. I am not sure if it changes on a daily/monthly basis.
My first visit, I enjoyed a perfectly prepared meat dish. So this time I thought of enjoying a Vegan menu, which was the special of the day. Again, it was excellent. The menu was well thought out, and the owner suggested a perfect wine to top it off. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. To top it off, the service was perfect. Not intruding on a conversation unless you asked for something, but reading the situation and knowing when to refill you glasses or clearing the table when everyone is done.
But now to the point of nobody is perfect. I guess, I will have to go back again and just keep looking. 8-)
To be serious, it is all a matter of taste. This restaurant for my wallet and taste, has the best package without having to wear a tie to dinner. I feel welcomed and have enjoyed the two evenings I was there.
