French fries were our preferred choice from the 3...More

This restaurant is a personal tip. Have been there with my family and we chose grill menus. Everything was delicious. Try the chateaubriand, it's superb and served by the chef directly!

We had an absolute amazing dinner at Chez Max Julen. There are only a few places in the world that you can get an Italian appetizer, a French Main course and a German dessert all paired with a Swiss wine. The chateaubriand was amazing as...More
