We found this restaurant by luck, while going to see the Lion monument. We saw the good Trip Advisor reviews and the tempting Menu and decided to come for the evening for dinner. It was my birthday, and we wanted to celebrate in a special place. Although we did not made a reservation, we were lucky to find a free table. I had lobster with champaigne sauce and choosed spinach as a sidedish ; it was delicious. My husband tried the House Schnitzel, and we enjoyed the cooking near our table. Chocolate Mousse is one of the best I ever had. It is a must to taste. Restaurant is very special as design and we enjoyed the old atmosphere. i would definetly go there again, and recommand my friends to go there. It was a special evening for my birthday. Price is a bit high, but not much higher than other places in Switzerland.

We had a delicious dinner and wine while people watching outside. The service was excellent. It was interesting to learn about the history of the family owners.

My husband and I ate here while we were staying in town. We liked it -charming. It has a quaint, nostalgic and homey feel -while still having top notch service and food. The decor is eclectic and eccentric. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We ate a phenomenal veal (special) and the schnitzel -classic favorite. The food was exceptional quality. It was a little pricey...but what isn't in Switzerland? Would definitely recommend it.
