We arrived at about 3 pm. Usually an "awkward" time for restaurants in Switzerland. Our very congenial waitress informed us that the only available items were salad and pizza. Perfect! We had both and the margarita pizza was perfect! Charming decor and very reasonably priced....More

Their pizza wasn't like usual pizzas you get in Malaysia. The bread was great even on the edges. Too bad couldn't find time to go to that restaurant again.
