Bar is well stocked, the restaurant is first class. Sit out in the garden on nice days, the magnificent view is free.

For the prices that are about the same level as any 'normal' restaurant in Switzerland, this place is one of the best. Food is excellent and presentation is great. Quantities in the plate could be a little bit more but still it is sufficient, not...More

Trendy atmosphere with show kitchen and a terrace, surrounded by high palm trees and a lush garden. A lively, casual atmosphere, permeated by magnificent scents of Mediterranean products. A large choice of wine, which you can choose directly from the wine library. We prepare year round seasonal dishes, daily from 7 am to 9.3 pm. Buon appetito!
