Willy Diggelman is an excellent chef. He bought a competitor many years ago, and he now owns the Rincon Suizo and 1985. The Swiss side offers obviously swiss cuisine and 1985 offers French. He also has a good wine cellar.

A lot has been said about the food here - there's not much I can add: well prepared dishes (I fondly remember my prawns in a perfect tomato cream) in a nice atmosphere with professional service. The best aspect, though, is the wine list: plenty...More

Classic French food that deservies a "10". Service is a "Chinese Fire Drill". Got butter, but no bread. Ask for wine list. Forget it. Ordered two glasses of wine instead. Adjoining table of locals had their order taken by the owner who talked to none...More
