Visited this restaurant for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. Small but very interesting menu. All dishes were delicious and service was superb. Ambience was classy as the rest of the hotel is. Perfect for a romantic dinner or a quiet business dinner. Will definitely go back!

A nice courtyard terrace with a fountain, but expensive for what you get ... service tries hard and is friendly - food is average, wine menu is okay

My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant dinner at the street side tables. The restaurant is located on a side street, so the traffic is not excessive, but still nice for people watching. For dinner, we both selected what appeared to be traditional Swiss sausages. They were delicious. The inside seating, which we did have to move to after it... More
