Fabulous service and dinner! We were on a quick schedule as we had to make it to the airport and they were so accommodating and the food was delicious! The apple cheesecake was the best I've ever had🤗

Superb food at a very reasonable price. My wife had a lamb schnitzel (the special for the day) which she pronounced was "marvellous" and I had a delicious Schnitzel France

Nice little restaurant with a Swiss decor. Food was very good. Service was great. My wife had food suitable for her because she's vegetarian. I really enjoyed the wienerschnitzel. All told, it was a nice experience, and we would go back again.

I'm not a fan of schnitzel but the 3 others at our table had it and raved about it. I had the Matterhorn casserole, spätzle with pork tenderloin tips and mushrooms and it was outstanding. Good sized portions, could do dessert.

We came off the ferry from Anacortes HUNGRY. And found this place. We LOVED the roesti (several different types) enough for us to search on the internet for more recipes. Service was great, food great. We'd do it again without hesitation.

This is a small place compared to most restaurants so reservations would definitely be advised. Because of this small size, you are going to find that you are not lost in a maze of tables dependant on overworked and undertrained staff. The service we experienced...More

Hi My wife and myself are coming to Sidney from the uk in August, and as it is my birthday whilst we are there we are looking for a good restaurant to go to. Unfortunately I cannot eat dairy , can you adjust the dishes to allow for this ? Kind regards Peter Smith
