“Lovely restaurant with good food nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

We ate here as it was next door to our hotel. The staff were helpful despite are lack of booking . The food was excellent and the only fault one could raise is that the meat (fillet steak) needed to mature as was a bit tough. All in all a good meal with good staff.

“Cute restaurant for a nice evening meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

We ate here for 2 nights during our stay - the meat from the grill is a good option here and we also enjoyed their fondue Chinoise with unlimited meat and fries. The service is good - most speak English and if you're willing to speak some French, they seem quite impressed. :) We had a good time here. The atmosphere is also quite nice which makes it a good evening romantic meal for two. There is also a lounge by the restaurant which can be used for an aperitif before dinner or a casual drink. Watch out though that because they grill the meat in the dinning room, you can end up smelling like grilled meat for the rest of the night.

“It is doubtful that I will return.”

This resataurant is very expensive and I have visited three times. The penultimate visit was good and although my wife was satisfied with her food, I was very dissatisfied.

“Hospitality how it should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We arrived at 5:30 pm after an extended mountain hike, hungry as expected. We were told by the gentleman who welcomed us that the kitchen opens only at 6:30 pm. When we asked if we could't have at least a snack, he said that the staff was ready to have supper and if we ordered right away, the kitchen would prepare our meal at the same time. Being vegetarians, we ordered a plate that wasn't on the menu. We were served promptly, the food and wine were delicious, dessert outstanding, service very friendly without being servile and the bill reasonable. When we left, the place started to fill up. Altogether, we felt to have been treated like royalty although we were in our hiking garb and after 6 hours of mountain hiking certainly didn't look very royal. This level of hospitality is not common in the Swiss mountains and we would like to thank the entire staff who made us feel welcome and commend them for an unforgettable experience!
