We went for a drink after dinner. There was only one other table occupied. We left after 20 mins, still waiting to be served. Beautiful building, though, well worth a visitMore

This was second time we had meal in this restaurant. The place is amazing with good service. It is too big to be romantic and there were two big tourist groups at the same time, which lowered the atmosphere. Food is nothing special, tasty local.More

A winner! Great ambiance, fantastic food and good service. The overall quality and presentation of food was terrific. It is fairly price, but most restaurants in Switzerland seem to be - and at least here you get what you pay for - a great meal!More

Reservation is definitely recommended esp if you are going on a Sunday. I emailed them. They only replied 1 week before the reservation date, so I think they only allow you to reserve 1 week before.

Entrées are around the 20 euro mark, main courses 35-40. Quite average for a Swiss restaurant but good value for money because service and ambience are top notch.
