Delicious schnitzel and spätzle! Wonderful atmosphere and excellent service! The restaurant has many Swiss decorations like large cow bells - typical of a European gasthaus! Fine dining at its finest!

Authentic and delicious! Cozy little bistro with colourful but tasteful decoration, giving it a lively feeling. Service was attentive and knowledgable but not overbearing. Our schnitzel dishes were superb. We came in the middle of the summer, but this would be a wonderful place to...More

Four of us had lunch at the Bistro today, the service was great and the food was as well. It is a very busy place and it is best to reserve. It is one of the best places in Sidney

Once again had dinner at this quaint little restaurant,,and again it exceeded our expectations. Both my wife and I had very "swiss" european entrees. Both dinners were as if we were sitting in a quality restaurant in Europe...just excellent. I've not had better in Switzerland!...More

Hi there! Yes they usually are open Christmas day, but have a set menu. You really need reservations for that day and now would probably get you a table for Christmas. Don't leave it too late!
