Excellent as always. We were never disappointed by the Gathemann. It is always a treat to eat there and I have never eaten a better Carpaccio than at Gathemann.

We had a very pleasant experience of having dinner in this restaurant. From the chef's compliment until the main course the meal was very delicious (fish platter and orix steak with red wine sauce were extraordinary!). The service was friendly and helpful (even when somebody was trying to break into our car on the far parking!). The interiors of the... More

Gorgeous presentations and wonderful food. Chef came out to greet us at our table and we asked for his recommendations. He shared with us what veggies had just come into season and he readily accommodated our special requests.

The food is good and the service is of medium standard. Waiters are friendly though. The view from the balcony especially in summer is lovely.

We visited on a trip in 1998, when Gathemann was incredible. The food is still good, but we felt that time had somehow stopped here, and not really in a good way.
