A group of seven of us had lunch here; I had the steak tartare, which was very good, although they were a bit stingy with the bread. Had the trio of Toblerone ice-cream for dessert, which was pretty good too. Everyone else seemed happy with their food too. Was a work-day, so didn't have wine, but they clearly have a... More

Came here for a catch-up/birthday meal with my friend Mark and we were not disappointed. Great staff, very helpful, non-snooty and great food.

This restaurant disappointed me. They have an unbelievable location with a fabulous view of the river and when you can eat outside in the summer the atmosphere is unsurpassed. BUT, in late 2015 they changed the menu. It became much more limited, more expensive, and the portion sizes became smaller. I didn't love the previous menu but was content because... More

A setting that in the summertime must be a killer, just by the river. Excellent service and a modern, light kitchen that let the savours speak for themselves. Got recommended some seriously good Swiss wines as well. A very good experience.

I have eaten dinner in this restaurant and it was delicious. Made of local seasonal produce, it was fresh and nicely seasoned. The Swiss wine was amazing.

Nice restaurant in front of the Rhein. Waitresses very nice and food very good. Very typical, maybe a little bit expensive ...

I sat here for a light lunch with my family to enjoy a beautiful view of the Rhine. The location is indeed nice, but I cannot say the same for food and staff. After a fair share of waiting, I managed to order a large beer, but only got a half pint (it's a wine joint, I get it). I... More

As a real frenchie, I love tartare. I found this restaurant by chance and ordered one. It was quite expensive so I took the starters portion because I didn't know what this dish was worth (which was still expensive). There was way more red sauce than meat and it was not well cuted. My friend took the fish of the... More

We went there for lunch today, having never been before. The view is nice and the decor and ambient etc. too but the food was very disappointing. I had the vegetarian lunch menu which was aubergine slices in a batter on rice and tomato sauce. The sauce tasted to me as it was a pelati out of tin but the... More
