Outside was too loud to sit but inside was very interesting and nicely decorated. Very good food and a very nice staff.

Reviewed 28 August 2017

I dined here August 26 with my son. There is an Italian/Ticino sister restaurant on site which is a very different and less expensive option. The Carlton has a good European menu with some Swiss touches. The menu leans towards meat, so we went for a meal of spicy beef tartare and beef, in my case an individual beef wellington which was perfectly done, accompanied by a fine Ticino Merlot from a good international wine list. The service and attention of the the very professional and friendly restaurant service manager Christian Meuser made this rare family get together very special indeed. I much appreciated that he phoned me in the afternoon before our dinner to warn that our outside table would be alongside 80 people celebrating an event (I found out later it was a Hermès Swiss office event). On our arrival we had a drink outdoors on the Italian restaurant side of the establishment and were given the option of dining there from either menu, or indoors in either location from either menu. We went for Carlton indoors which was much quieter than the busy Ticino/Italian side. The Carlton is for non-Swiss more likely an expensive evening than not, but some damage control is possible from a varied menu and wine list. Our Ticino 2011 Merlot was $100+, and our mains were expensive selections (for the two of us the final bill was $300+) . We ate very well, and for our special and rare father-son get-together we were very satisfied.
