Very nice blend of art, good food and nice ambiance. Works for just a drink, romantic dinner or group gatherings. The menu variety is great. Service is always busy but very nice.

Simple and cool but efficient service, short menu, pleasant atmosphere...very good cuisine and carefully presented dishes. Sounds like a simple recipe but obviously not something any place manage to master! This is the case in Cafe du Grutli. We had another pleasant experience there recently....More
