Great food, great place and friendly personnel. Really cosy atmosphere. The restaurant can also suggest a glass of wine matching each course

It's a small restaurant, recommend u made reservation before. Small choice of menu but everything is extremely well cooked. The summer salad is one of the best I have, lime soup is exotic and refreshing. You can really feel the cook is cooking for each customer with heart and warmth. The only reservation is that waitress and boss are too... More

The best meal and dining experience I've had on numerous visits to Switzerland. Modern but not pretentious, interesting use of top quality ingredients, generous servings. A lovely room and welcoming. Overall, a very nice surprise compared to some previous meals out in Switzerland. Not cheap compared to other places here, but a cut above and well worth it.

I did not expect to find such a great and reasonably priced restaurant in a touristy swiss town. Every dish was delish. Well balanced. Nice wine choices. GO HERE! Nice people too!

cute place, food alright. overall not so bad, but i wouldn't really recommend it. bread was almost unbaked. portion of butter was a joke. meal portions were small. cheese dish was so small it would be simpler to inhale the pieces. dessert was fantastic (peaches and vanilla cream with raspberry sorbet). but the smell of cooked/fried/braised/baked food (mainly garic) from...

Really brilliant one o f best meals we have had in Switzerland even after 15 years. Not cheap but excellent value for money. I really recommend the wine choices with the dishes. Wines are all local and very good.

We came here on the suggestion of our airbnb host who said the food is excellent. It was nothing less. The food was outstanding. We both had wild garlic soup, lemon ravioli, veal, pata negra, brownie and a cheese board. The pork was exceptionally well cooked, tender and had a fantastic taste. The final cheese selection was also really delicious.... More

I chose this place to propose to my girlfriend and I couldn't have done better. This place is clearly among the best restaurants I have ever been in. Not only is the food excellent but also the atmosphere is great and the service is very friendly. We will definitely come back!

Vers good experience. Food was very good, with real effort on presentation and choice of ingredients. Finally it's not fondue, sausages and frites. Veal was excellent. You should book even during the week, restaurant is small so tables are not many. I recommend and next time in Leukerbad will go there to eat again.

Gourmet food, fine service and a smooth ambiance. Somewhere I can recommend to anybody. th concept is interesting in that there are 10 plates to choose from and if you decide on 3 or more the price is fixed. There is a suggested wine for each course by the glass if you want. The prices are Swiss - the quality... More
