This restaurant never disappoints you. From classic 'Wiener Schnitzel (Veal), to 'Zuerigeschnetzeltes & Roesti' (Veal on a creamy sauce with Roesti) or al dente Pasta. Good service.

We stopped for lunch after a busy morning at Klein Matterhorn, very hungry. We had excellent fondue, an order of fish and chips, and a roesti. All were very good, and the service was friendly and prompt. Well worth a visit.
