Beautiful warm evening saw tables laid outside view views of the shops in old town. Service ranged from super-attentive to ‘where is everyone?’. The food was very nice but perhaps it was more the mood and atmosphere that made it. They have some great Swiss...More

We have been in Kindli on 23th december 2017. It was fully booked but the service was still very good. The dishes are from good quality but also quit expensive. It is a beautiful restaurant in an old townhouse.
