I take great delight in recommending this restaurant because I hope it serves well in giving others the same enjoyment I had dining here. The food was delicious and the service was top class.

This is a beautiful place for a lunch or dinner. In the summer it's beautiful for lunch and dinner as the evenings are long. But even in the winter a dinner has it's charm. The setting is magnificent, the staff are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the winter menu is a bit bland and quite narrow in choice. No seafood and... More

Thank you for your positive comments especially regarding the setting and the staff. It is a pity you are not that enthusiastic about our winter menu, taste is not debatable. However, the winter menu gives the same amount of options as our spring or summer menu. Luckily we change our menu regularly, so hopefully we are able welcoming you soon... More

We have stayed for some days in the Monda area and tried different restaurants and this is one of the best. Oysters is always nice to start with. Nice wine list with little extra. Staff are very near the guest which we like. You feel like home

I cannot imagine any more perfect lunch than sitting on the terrace on the roof of this renovated castle sharing a simple meal of bread, oil and cheese and a cup of tea with friends in the last summer sunshine. The climb up the stairs may be challenging if like me you hate lifts, but it is worth it. We... More

Your review surprises us. We always have a senior staff member acting as a supervisor. We are wondering what exactly went wrong. Hopefully you will give us the opportunity again to proof that our service is very good as well. More

We dined here last night with friends the location is fabulous! The restaurant is located in a sympathetically renovated 14th century castle in the mountains overlooking the quaint village of Monda and the surrounding area the scenery is absolutely breathtaking! The dining room is exceptionally clean with stained glass windows showing panoramic views across the mountains and a large terrace... More
