Are here on business on a chilly Monday evening in Jan 2016.

It was a recommendation from a colleague, but it was a pleasant surprise to have good food, at a sensible price in Switzerland.

We only had one course as there was work to be done. Both our meals were very good and nicely presented by friendly staff.

Likes : Food, Service, Value, Location, busy atmosphere (even on a Monday)
Dislikes : Nothing really. We were warned of the Fondue smell and yes, on entry it was quite strong, but you get used to it instantly.

Would go back.

A very ordinary restaurant that tries too hard to be extra hip and exceptional. The prices are eyewatering for what you get, and though the food is good - not exceptional. The decor is nice enough - but not exceptional.

It's okay, but ... eh. It's like a hipster who thinks that just because he doesn't shave and wears his grandfather's bowler hat, he's "retro" and "chic" or something.

Lunch in this quaint brasserie just a stone's throw from the main station.
The interior is typical brasserie-style: very rustic, high ceilings, wood panels.
The menu is also typical brasserie-style with a bit of a hip twist to it.

The waiters wear their own T-shirts, which may come across like easy-going and "alternative".

Nothing out of the ordinary.

Good food, very crowded on sunny sundays. The atmosphere is nice. I would recommend for tourists but beware, it's Swiss price so it might be expensive.

We were staying at a hotel hardly 2 minutes walk, so the Café was very convenient. It was always busy, but we never had to wait more than a few minutes to get a table inside. The staff were very happy to translate the menu card for us! Food was excellent. Wednesday is fondue night with a separate menu, and the stuffed omelette (part of the weekend morning brunch) was amazing
