Unfortunately we has been served by a rude waiter. Could be because we are not Swiss! In the restourant there is not the gluten free in the menù and the food is too greasy for my taste. I would not come back.

Service is terrible in this restaurant. We sat there for 20 minutes but no waiter came. We even didn't get a menu. Terrible terrible experience! By the way, it was not very busy and only half of the seats were filled at that moment.

The food here is good, typical swiss, but I would say the prices are a bit higher, I guess it is because of the location. But we did not regret it because we were leaving full.
