Visited for dinner with my more significant half in March 2015.
So far we have found no faults in what the restaurant offers. Let's go step by step.
There is a bar (as part of the restaurant) in case you arrive before 7pm or there are no table you can hang out there. Decor inside is great - a lot of character of the old alpine village (check the wall and the old barn door - as you enter, further to the left!), lots of space so guests can feel very relaxed without the typical move-the-chair-together-with-the-guy-from-the-next-table. Discrete ambient light (dark enough that it is cosy, yet bright enough you can read the menu, see who you came with and what's on the plate) and (oki - this is my hobby horse) background music.
What's up with that? well, firstly it is the mellow classics from the 50/60's, loud enough you recognise the tune yet quiet enough you can have a quiet conversation with your partner. FINALLY SOMEBODY GOT THAT RIGHT!
Food - yes, very good. Well prepared, well served, very nice flavours (try the fresh bread - outstanding! typical mountain bread but soooo fresh!) . Top marks.
Tip to the management: when the bread is served (and so oil, vinegar, salt, etc.) you might want to add a small plate for each diner. Dripping oil over the bread is quite stressful feeling I'll mess up the tablecloth in a moment.
Staff is very polite and moves at the speed of light - again top marks! no need to hunt them down with long stares - they definitely feel the vibe of the customers.
For a dinner for 2 (2x mains, 2x sides, 2x puddings, 2x coffee, wine, beer) we left 60Eur.

Good food but slow service. If you like to wait and not getting what you order this is the place. 2 persons serving the entire place!!

I ate in this restaurant in winter 2013 and 2014. The owner was always there ready and happy to help us. Great place to come with kids. The food is fresh and tasty. Will be back this year!

The food is quite average and nothing to write home about. The prices are a bit higher than expected considering that the restaurant is a little of the beat. However, charming service and good selection of beers.
