“Atmospheric”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

An 'old chalet' on the outside, but split-level inside, with restaurant at entrance level and bar with magnificent-looking jukebox below. Nice ambience, good food and a large fondue menu

“Good jukebox and not too noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

This old Chalet style building is very pleasant and not as noisy as some of the other bars. A bit dark. We didn't eat there but it looked good.

“Lovely service and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

After a wander down the street and an attempt to have lunch we dined here the other evening. The team were great, the English menus hadn't been printed yet so they were kind enough to give us a quick translation of the menu which we really appreciated.

The food was great, my beet soup with hint of orange was wonderful and my partners potato leek soup with bacon was very tasty as well. For mains I had the house ragout of beef with whisky sauce and spatzli; normally I don't like spatzli but I really enjoyed it here! My partner had the lamb which was cooked really nicely, had a wonderful flavor and came with matchstick french fries with flavored salt that were also very nice.

Sadly we didn't stick around for desert though as a table next to us was having a very serious conversation with family drama. This place does seem to turn into a nightclub around 9/10 and when we were there it was quite loud, so if you want the more romantic atmosphere go before then but do go!
