“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Ate at this restaurant after a long work day (and at the recommendation of TripAdvisor near me now restaurants) and it was just perfect! The food was fantastic! Quaint little place, feels cozy, comfortable and local. Beer and wine were good, our waiter spoke english and was just extremely nice. We'd had a long day and this was a nice way to forget about it.

“Nice rustic atmosphere ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Had dinner here with some colleagues on a business trip.
The place was nice, it felt like the kind of place where you go after a day skiing - warm and rustic.
The food was good I guess - it's not my type of food (a bit heavy) but I could tell it was nice for people who like that kind of hearty cuisine.

“Best dinner the whole trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Simply the best dinner in two weeks of traveling around Europe. The food was great, the waiter made the whole experience even better. We were tired from traveling nine hours from Berlin and trying to find someplace to get gifts. Found this nice, setback, restaurant. One of the "rules" of the trip was to try local food every stop and this place did not disappoint. The waiter recommended both food and a beer for me to try. They were both excellent. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The food is enough to make the restaurant five stars, the waiter just made everything perfect.

“A bit of character”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Small and busy place well located close to be very different from the financial district. As close to good value as any restaurant in Switzerland is ever going to get.
