Random luck got us into this restaurant and absolutely loved it, they have an amazingly huge offer of wines and the food is delicious, we were there at their tartar festival and was a great experience since they prepare it at your table.

This place is the worse place ever, the staff is unfriendly and disrespectful. I have never been welcomed this way anywhere else. I would definitely spend my money somewhere else and would suggest anyone else to stay away.

GnussereiIndustrielle Nostalgie im GourmetrestaurantDie schonste Rettung von Elementen der Industriekultur in die Gegenwart ist hier einem Gastronomen gelungen, der maschinelle Relikte aus der Giesserei in sein Gourmet-Restaurant integriert hat. Die Dekoration der Gnusserei und wichtige Elemente der Moblierung bestehen aus Originalteilen der Fabrik: vom Kupolofen uber Eisentrager, Regale, Metallplatten und andere Geratschaften. Die ausschliessliche Verwendung der Farben Braun, Schwarz und Orange rundet die Komposition ab und bringt die industrielle Nostalgie mit der gegenwartigen Dienstleistung virtuos in Einklang.
