I guess all the restaurants on the river are overpriced and uncaring as the bulk of customers are not locals, but this was extreme. The server was brusque at best, but when we finished and asked to split the bill in a specific way, things went downhill fast. He apparently easily did the split, but put the drinks on the wrong one, then really did not want to fix it. We were determined, and prevailed in the end but his attitude was beyond acceptable, verging on violent at the end. My IPad won’t let me do individual category ratings but if it did, service would be 0!

Food was decent, I had the pesto pasta and he had the green peppercorn steak. That wasn’t huge but was tender, flavorful and perfectly cooked. Drinks are as pricy as everything else so we had draft local beers which were good and a fair price. Location is excellent, hence the prices, I guess!

Nice place for a coffee or light dinner or lunch overlooking river Rhine. Especially when the weather aloud to sit outside. A bit expensive but you are in Switzerland remember ?

Food has always been good, but unfortunately the staff is unbelievably rude. Do something about your staff! You have the perfect location and nice menu, why spoil the experience with unfriendly service?

We loved the food and location of this restaurant. It has a large outdoor seating patio. Great place to go for a drink or to have a nice meal. We loved watching the Rhine river, listened to the accordian player outside and had a great lunch of gnocchi and filled pasta. It was great overall. Prices are in the mid to high 20s to low 30s. There is a charge for tap water as well. Overall nice restaurant and server was very friendly. Accomodating to those speaking English as well which we appreciated.
