Location is perfect. Food is so so, wine is not so bad. However, we waited our main dish for 3 hours and totally over 4 hours spent our time. Even so, they charge us tip for 13%! You should decide carefully whether if you need...More

A group of seven of us had lunch here; I had the steak tartare, which was very good, although they were a bit stingy with the bread. Had the trio of Toblerone ice-cream for dessert, which was pretty good too. Everyone else seemed happy with...More

Came here for a catch-up/birthday meal with my friend Mark and we were not disappointed. Great staff, very helpful, non-snooty and great food.

This restaurant disappointed me. They have an unbelievable location with a fabulous view of the river and when you can eat outside in the summer the atmosphere is unsurpassed. BUT, in late 2015 they changed the menu. It became much more limited, more expensive, and...More

Thank you for your visit at our restaurant and your feedback juliaswitzerland2016. We adjust our menu seasonally, so we cannot always respond to all requests. We thank you for your comprehension.

A setting that in the summertime must be a killer, just by the river. Excellent service and a modern, light kitchen that let the savours speak for themselves. Got recommended some seriously good Swiss wines as well. A very good experience.

I have eaten dinner in this restaurant and it was delicious. Made of local seasonal produce, it was fresh and nicely seasoned. The Swiss wine was amazing.

As a real frenchie, I love tartare. I found this restaurant by chance and ordered one. It was quite expensive so I took the starters portion because I didn't know what this dish was worth (which was still expensive). There was way more red sauce...More
