“Romantic restaurant with amazing attention by the owner himself”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

We went there on a nice summer evening, actually a Monday, and the place was packed. Definitely reserve ahead!!

The interior is very warm and cozy, as the name says a little house. We sat outside, where another maybe 15 tables or so are arranged on the terrace and around the little ponds. The decoration, both interior and exterior is lovely, with a variety of witches, frogs, cats, and mice statues.

We had a Currybread and salad as a starter, reasonably priced at well under 10 CHF. As mains we opted for the beef skewer "Uxmal" , with cilantro and tomato sauce, and lamb skewer with curry. Both excellent in taste, and especially the lamb very tender.
All the plates are named after places the owner has actually travelled to...and that seems to be quite a bit.
The dessert was Caribbean cream for us, a delicious mix of banana, pineapple and coconut.
As wine we opted for the argentine Malbec, also a very good choice.

Service and attention was excellent, the owner came by and greeted every table. The couple at the table next to us was celebrating a birthday, and they even got a little present.

We will definitely go back there!

The restaurant is in the woods, very nice location with a little pond and outside serving area. A romantic atmosphere and nice food make this place wormy a whole.
