My wife and I had an amazing dinner here on July 17th. Excellent meal and great service. I had the Joue de Boeuf and I had to say it was the most delicious beef I have ever had. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I had both lunch and a room service dinner from this restaurant. Although a bit on the high side for cost, the meals were generous portions and very enjoyable. Desserts were also very nice and the coffee is superb.

Yes, menu is offered in English II Matto is walking distance, but please recognize that it is located "downstairs". The funicular is available if walking the stairs presents a problem.
