“Quaint setting, decent meal”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

This stone building set in a park reminded me of the Peak Cafe in Hong Kong, but the interior was pure Swiss charm. People had raved about the steak, so one of our group tried it and said it was okay but nothing fabulous. The rest of us had the pasta with tomato sauce, which was yummy. The desserts - much of our point of eating! - were tasty, but again not fabulous. The homemade fruit kuchen was the best, with the creme caramel second. The panna cotta was a poor choice.

That said, the staff were friendly and welcoming, and the place cozy and warm on an unseasonably cool evening.
