The food and wine were awesome and well paired... presentation was perfect. A decade or so ago, I dined at Le Bec-Fin in Philadelphia and considered it the best I'd ever had--Im Schiffchen was every bit as great. Highly recommended!

Annnnn’ Aaaaaa’mazing experience! For food lovers! The French would say « une explosion en bouche..., une merveille pour les papilles gustatives... » The restaurant is split in two; we went to Enzo which deserves more than to be in the 110 best german restaurants (according to Gault...More

Amazing ambiente, outstanding service (very professional, friendly & obliging), creative and excellent dishes. You feel very welcome and comfortable - it has been a great experience to have dinner there and I recommend it to anyone, who expects an event, instead of a "normal dinner".

Is Michelin 2 Star. It starts with very good service, I can't say "excellent" because not everyone in the restaurant is equally skilled in services. The dinner is mostly set. 8 course or 5. It is a lot to eat. It is French-Japanese fusion. French...More
