The food was very tasty, the options were in my opinion very Swiss (although not the typical foundue). The service was excellent and the atmosphere very nice. I would categorise the restaurant as medium range for prices and as good confort food

Very friendly staff. They immediately brought same books for the kids. The food is okay but a little overpriced.
