100chf per person for 3 small dishes plus some beers. Quality ok but price out of line especially as you have limited time to eat given their system with shifts. Best shift for Josef would be to change their prices.

Wonderful place, each dish shows the talent and rich fantasy of the cook. Small plates, so you can taste many wonderful dishes without getting too full. Fun atmosphere and cool staff.
