There is good food and then there is great food. This was great food. The menu is 5 courses and is pre-set. Along with a chef's offering, there is salad, pasta, entree, cheese and dessert. The entree we had was veal with potatoes and arugula. It was the best, most tender veal I think I have ever had, with a sauce that was rich, but not overpowering. Had a very enjoyable 2+ hours. Couple of notes...a cab from the center of town should not cost more than about 12 Swiss francs (we were grossly overcharged on the way there), also be patient with the staff, English is not always their first language and there may be some miscommunication. I was able to speak German to them and it was much easier.
While the name sounds Swiss/German, I believe the cooking is Italian based, with the menu written in a chalk board in Italian. This restaurant has found a delicious and unique niche in a world where people expect really fresh food, wonderfully cooked.
