We were hungry, so we stumbled across this place. Parking is at the rear, and the tram runs outside it. Opposite the airport, and you can see planes land/take off. A typical Swiss menu. Good food, and friendly service. The inside decor is aviation related....More

You don't go there for the decoration of the place as it is very basic with some objects/deco linked to aviation (in fact, close by the airport). You go there for the really nice vibe, good service and delicious food. In the summer, their patio...More

Recommended by the hotel reception nearby, very popular restaurant in the area with excellent steaks. Varied wine list and beers of some quality. I had a curry and my wife a caravelle. The Tiramisu was very good.
