One of the few Michelin restaurants in the region. Decor is quite dissapointing, it felt a little like an old age home. Service isnt as sharp as other Michelins, though they are friendly. Probably my biggest criticism are the prices which are easily 30-40 Euros more expensive then other 1 star Michelin restaurant menu options. Why do Swiss establishments feel entitled to over-charge? O.k, now about the food: we had the largest menu option (8 courses). Food was good, not menorable though. The dessert courses were much more impressive. Nice to meet the young Chef. I feel with a decor makeover, finer service training, a drop in price and a little more imagination with the main courses this place could be much better.

the restaurant has a great wine cellar and selection. you can trust the wine recommendations and if you don't would like the wine - it's no problem and it will be changed without a discussion. the food has a high quality and are really creative.

Birthday party in the private room, having dinner surrounded by hundreds of bottles of wine giving you this amazing atmosphere where you can enjoy even more the fantastic plates that the chef prepares with love to detail and embraces traditional cuisine with a touch of personal flavours. Highly recommended.

We were with a local friend in Lake Como when he suggested we venture to Switzerland for lunch. Always up for an adventure - off we went. What a treat! They knew our friend so we were treated to great service, wonderful food and a fantastic wine cellar that included a post lunch tour.

As I watched the food coming and going, I realized - everyone is treated to great service and great food.

The atmosphere is open, happy, great for business or pleasure. Must be romantic at night as the windows are three of the four walls. Multi languages spoken and everyone is pleased that you are eating with them.

Usually, I enjoy a restaurant several times before reviewing....but this is also one of those places that you will talk about for a long time after the meal - because it is a wonderful experience.

Now, THAT is a restaurant!
a) The "Conca Bella Restaurant" part is a complete surprising experience, both for your taste and for your eyes.
b) Opt for the (new) "Bistrot Conca" area if you prefer a more informal money-saving meal (in that case just go for "Sedanini Panna & Salsiccia", they are so delicious!)
