Perfect place for vegans or vegetarians, also for everyone else. We had lunch menu, and for around 20 CHF you get a small first and a large second, we couldn't finish everything! The waiter was very kind.

Good place, but don't waste your money on beer, save €6 and walk to the supermarket over the bridge. It's the same stuff. Plus you can still take your beer inside!
