Great lunch menu, and the food was lovely. Went with friends who are regulars there, and I understand why.

Three courses of very simple but incredibly well done food. The game mixed grill was perfectly cooked and topped off with the best rosti I've ever had! More than enough choice to come again and enjoy, would highly recommend.
