Nice location and food, BUT.... Manager and staff are pushy and hard-selling which is disturbing. Babies are not welcomed, the manager was embarrassing a mum during desert that made her feel apologetic and as she had to leave or at least hurry - disturbing focus...More

You need a thick skin to handle the cold, rude behavior of the owner and staff towards anyone who isn't Swiss. The food was decent but served poorly - they served all the men first which is not proper etiquette and we were all laughing...More

We had a wonderful dinner with a fixed 5-course menue. Chef Schürmann is an excellent cook and his partner Petra von Gunten a good and funny host. The winelist is very good with reasonable prices.

Great interior as well, but the tables are a bit too high and chairs could be a little bit more comfortable. And not cheap...

The menu changes daily so the food is in season and fresh. Our meal was excellent, so was the wine paired with the meal. In my opinion is should have a 1 Michelin Star.

Decor: Sleek, updated; looks like former industrial space, with modern open kitchen and concrete floors painted bright blue. Very beautiful. Cuisine: Updated, contemporary. Focuses on local ingredients. Everything prepared extremely well. Wine pairings were excellent.
