“Poor products Quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

The menu, the service , and the quality of food are terrible, the prices are to high for a restaurant with students workers, they not get paid for their work.Plus how can you say that the restaurant its gastronomic when you have students with no experience cooking for the customers, as well the meet at least is frozen, that we can understand from miles, well the service is average.The wine menu very poor compare to what they can have in this region of Europe.

“Nice surronding and served by young students”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

I often went there for lunch, happy to see those interns were doing the good service. Food is fine, garden is beautiful, especially in the summer. Just he price a little bit high.

“How to convert an error in an opportunity to show your class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Nice old decor building, beutiful location (just outside ONU headquarters), warm welcome.
Ordered only main courses, without entreés.
20 minutes later, the food arrives, but one of the plates was wrongly ordered.
Both plates went back, and as a compensation, we were served one of the best soups I've ever tasted (Topinambours soup, a heavenly delicatessen)
As for the rest of the service, absolutely wonderful!

“Wonderfull evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

Near the UN complex, in an old master house, it hosts one of Switerland's best Hotel school.
Opened for lunch, you can reserve it for private parties, just great.

“Excellent food, so-so service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

We were well surprised by the food, very good and well presented. The setting was nice, and the service fast... even too fast: the staff was really in a hurry and at times they were literally running. It's a pity because all the rest was excellent. However, they were always corteous and if we happen to be in the area again we will go back.
