We visited for lunch with dear friends and were very impressed with the buffet on offer. The food was delicious and plenty of it. The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The ambience was great. Would recommend to all.

Expensive restaurant with little variety of food. It has space to receive large groups and also has a good location near the Luge.
