Really liked this place. Been there for dinner and couldn't be happier. Great food, unlike most places in Switzerland not expensive and great service. We even got refill on our fries! Ordered the steak which was perfectly done. Will definitely come back again

... at least once a year. The famous Entrecote was good as ever, the service pleasant as ever and hence the experience very good as last year. I will come again next year !
