The interior really is avant-garde - a stylish mix of modern and old, with various interiors and a plethora of art. The food was quite interesting, with the exception of the vegan noodles (those were a bit overcooked and not so exciting). The rest -...More

This restaurant is highly recommended. The food is really delicious and well presented, and their wine selection is very good. The manager (owner?) is a cool guy with humour who demonstrates his competence in advising on wine. Dining at Avant Garthe was one of the...More

A bit of a modern fit out, probably a bit too modern for me. Great selection of wine. Service was excellent. Was a bit disappointed by the food. While the 'meatloaf' was tasty the accompanying pasta was almost cold and had some hard dried out...More

Alas, I made reservations at "Avante Garthe" (apparently Paparazzi's new name) based on these reviews... and something fundamental must have changed along with the name, because I was hideously disappointed. I love good food and am no stranger to small but tasty portions, but nothing...More

The food, the open wine and the coffee were excellent! Only disappointment was the appetizers were a little on the small side. It should have been three scallops and three gambas, not two. The main course and the desert were appropriate. The pricing was fair....More

Sie sitzen an einem schönen Abend im Freien, unter einem grossen Baum und beschweren sich über Laub und Tierchen? Wie oft denken sie wohl, müsste man zu dieser Jahreszeit "kehren" um KEIN Laub auf dem Boden zu haben....alle 10 Minuten? In welcher Welt leben Sie eigentlich....wieso sind Sie nicht "rein" gegangen??? Alleine nur DIESE selten dä...liche Kritik, lässt alles Andere von Ihnen Kritisierte, äußerst unglaubwürdig erscheinen. Ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass Sie der Albtraum eines jeden Gastronomen sind...

mit einer Wartezeit von etwa 10 Minuten kann ich ganz hervorragend leben....ich gehe ja abends nicht zum Essen, um schnell, schnell schnell alles ab zu handeln...im Gegenteil: Ich nehme und lasse mir sehr viel Zeit... Ich kann es verstehen, dass man beim Sex "schnell kommen" möchte, aber in einem Restaurant "10 Minuten" Wartezeit zu reklamieren ist schon MEHR als dekadent!
