Facing a beautiful courtyard, this place is great for lunch, drinks and dinner. Lunch menu is more extensive and service is always most attentive.

Was there with some work colleagues. The bar/restaurant is very nicely done and comfortable. The food was good - a little too much though. I had the club sandwich which I can recommend. They have a good selection of traditional bar food and some specials....More

They have quite a few whiskies at this place. Had a Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish - nice. The food they served at the table next-by seemed nice too (but I didn't try).

I have had dinner in the Old Fashioned a number of times and it has always been enjoyable. It's called a bar but I see it more of a restaurant with bar that does not hassle you if you just want to have drinks. But...More

As the name gives away, this is a classy, old-fashioned bar close to Paradeplatz. Used to be frequented by the stock exchange traders way back then. Solid choice of drinks and very good bar menu (reserve seat in the back of the restaurant). Has nice...More
