Had a very nice meal here. The menu is small and many fish dishes which you would expect given the proximity to the lake. Dishes are very rich! The foie gras was excellent and beautifully presented. The pasta was good but not so special. Service was warm and inviting but very professional. Overall very enjoyable but a little over priced (perhaps this is just location) - I'm not sure that I have paid 30 euros for a starter before even in a Michelin star restaurant.

As good food as I’ve eaten anywhere. Pricey but sophisticated, high-end cooking of the highest standard. The tasting menu was a lovely experience.

This is a small cosy traditional restaurant. Mama in the kitchen, daughter and father taking well care of the guests. The food specially the pasta was really superb! The best I have had in a long time. The prices are not cheap but worth it.

Excellent restaurant, with food, wine and service unexpected in a little lakeside town. It is not cheap, but well worth every euro. The degustation of lake specialties is fabulous. You do need to book ahead as it is very popular.
