My husband had the tripadvisor-recommended Chic Cordon Bleu. I had Rosti with fried eggs on top. We were both loved our meals. Great little street to sit on and watch people go by!!!

I have never been subjected to such rude service. The man who appeared to be the owner of this establishment took objection to us almost the moment we sat down - our crime apparently was to be English speaking travellers.

We were seated next to a lovely Swiss couple who watched in amazement at the treatment we received. He huffed, he puffed, he threw menus at us and told us what to order - this probably should have been the cue to leave - told me to be quiet when I tried to ask a question - again another hint to leave! We ordered the special which was a lovely beef stroganoff type dish - it was a shame about the service because the food the actually very good.

After we had eaten and time came to pay the bill - again another huge hissy fit thrown by the apparent owner - our sin this time - apparently wanting to pay with our credit card! We had watched plenty of other people pay with their cards - obviously Swiss - who had no problem. He eventually let us pay with our card but presented us with a receipt that was about 50 cms long!

The couple next to us actually made the comment that they ate quite reguarly at this particular restaurant and had never seen people treated so badly, and to please not judge all Swiss people by his behaviour.

Overall we couldn't get out of the restaurant quick enough, and wouldn't recommend this restaurant based on the service!
