Nice friendly restaurant, with a railway theme (interesting old photos and a model railway). Food was very tasty, good portions and good value.

They offer changing menus with very typical local food. They also have lunch menus. You can sit outside but unfortunately looking at the tracks of the central station.

We had a business lunch here, food was good and service excellent. Good place to go for a quick lunch. Have not tried it in an evening - not sure I would do that, atmosphere business like. They do specials at lunchtime, which are inexpensive by Swiss standards

I stopped by with some colleagues as it is close to my working place. There is nothing special in this place. Menu is like in some other places around. Average Swiss prices and average services. Good for a quick business lunch.
