Wer had a nice sport event and dinner in the mentioned location. Food was relatively simple but good. I checked the prices and had really the impression, that the price performance level needs to be reviewed.

Excellent service, my fish ( trout) was super delicious. Friendly people, great services, no waiting time. I asked for a mashed potato instead of rice, and I had the best one !

The food was very tasty, the options were in my opinion very Swiss (although not the typical foundue). The service was excellent and the atmosphere very nice. I would categorise the restaurant as medium range for prices and as good confort food

Very friendly staff. They immediately brought same books for the kids. The food is okay but a little overpriced.
