We have been in Kindli on 23th december 2017. It was fully booked but the service was still very good. The dishes are from good quality but also quit expensive. It is a beautiful restaurant in an old townhouse.

Come here for authentic classics in a beautiful setting. The food is perfect. They use the best ingredients they can get their hands on. Service is generally great as well. It is much better than kronenhalle overall. I highly recommend it.
