We have visited the Bistro many times for their tasty Roesti. Several choices to be had and they are all good. Envision a potato patty made up of bacon, onion, mushroom or whatever you choose, with tons of melted cheese and eggs served on top. It is huge and very delicious. Everything is done well here and we've always had... More

Good service, well-maintained dining room and tasty food. Enjoyed the schnitzel and raclette. Very old-school but recommended.

We have visited this little gem many times. We even had Christmas dinner there this year and it was such a treat. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is very good. A nice place for celebrating special occasions too.

We normally stay at home this day but booked dinner here - we were not disappointed! They were so personal and helpful. Tey cared for all those with dietary issues like my gluten free wife. Just one small issue - the main course was not terribly hot but was so delicious. Thanks
