Very cosy. Always busy. My crepes were not fabulous, I had 'pure love' but couldn't taste any lemon at all so quiet bland if I'm honest. My husband loved his dessert 'the big apple' and the kids were happy with theirs 'the Nutella'. Next time...More

Service was good, but the food was very average. Charcuterie plate was good, crepes were terrible. Fondue was good, not great. I would not go back.

Great atmosphere, good food. My all favorite is the Palatschinken crepe. I also like everything on the menu except the cheese fondue, it was a little bit too liquid. Everything else is perfect.

Last week I ate at this restaurant and the place is cozy, but the food was below my expectations. The bread served with the fondue was cold and full of mold. The truffled fondue had no taste or smell of truffle at all. Very dissapointing
