This restaurant really is a gem and if you haven't been there, then you really should! It is very difficult to get in for dinner because it is so popular so either be organised and book early, go mid-week or go for lunch. The food is delicious and also very good value. Anyhow we just had another lovely lunch with... More

Why no star? We've visited many starred restaurants in France that aren't half as fine as this place. Reserved a table for two, arrived a little early and was met by a beautiful young lady who gave us the absolute best attention. Quality of the dinner was as good as any we've found for several months. Excellent wine list and... More

Reservations are a must! If you are planning to visit Fribourg and want to eat in a very classy, old fashioned atmosphere with a superb service and gastronomic food at affordable prices, this is the place to go. You can have a lunch menu for CHF29.00 and if you do not want a dessert, it is only CHF 23.00 (Mind... More

What a lovely place just a few minutes walk away from the castle. Perfect for big groups, or solo dining. The staff easily accommodates food allergies (gluten & dairy), and make sure to order the rosti, it's superb!

Always full, reservation absolutely necessary. Top menu at lunch, good for business and friends, even if a little noisy. Very original with friendly service. Something different from the usual.

Located in the old-town of Fribourg this restaurant combines class and authenticity with great food and (for the type of restaurant) reasonable prices. They offer a fresh market menu, the staff is friendly.

First of all, the food was top notch! But just good food doesn't make a great evening, especially if you take out your girlfriend to a "nice" restaurant! After we were seated at the table, we were immediately asked if we have a voucher! A voucher?!? In a restaurant were you pay CHF 70-100 only for the menu, this is... More

Okay, this was our second time in this restaurant, which is thought to be one of the best in town. Indeed, the food is superb. Pity I could not enjoy all plates included in the set menu and I stopped at the main dish. I also like the fact that they have a small specific menu, which changes with season.... More

I have been there for dinner. The food is outstanding and the service too. I was invited and therefore I cannot judge the quality vs price ratio...
