Lovely lunch. The perfect combo of great food, great service, and great atmosphere. The staff here were so warm and welcoming. Ready to do anything they could to please us. This was a girls lunch. I had the French press coffee, which was wonderful. Also got the chicken schnitzel -- holy yumness. Superior to the popular German chain restaurant that... More

This was our dinner clubs second restaurant. It is a small quaint restaurant that serves up authentic Swiss cuisine. We especially enjoyed the chicken piccata, rahmschnitzel, hash browns and the goulash. The staff was kind and helpful. We will be back. :)

My daughter and I happened upon this while walking on Alberta street and am so glad we did! Food is authentic and wonderful. Excellent service. Their salad dressing is so delicious that I will be ordering some to have home in NYC - and I never buy salad dressing.

I never write reviews but it was so good I have to write one. We visited from Switzerland and were very excited about how the food will taste. The food tasted so good! They had the original swiss style bratwurst and even the swiss mustard! Spätzle were above good! And the chocolate mousse was very good too. We would come... More

Met up with some friends who live in Portland who know the favorites spots of the locals who took us to this little restaurant located in a quaint Portland neighborhood. The food was amazing and authentic. All four in our group had something different and we all raved about our meals. You can't go wrong with your order. Friendly service.... More

Hand down the best Swiss food I've had in the US. The schnitzel was PERFECT. Light, tender. Spaetzle was exceptional and the emince zurichoise was the BOMB. Perfect service, intimate and one of the most enjoyable dining experiences in a low key atmosphere I've had. If I come back to Portland, this is on my list!

The food and beverages were the most reminiscent of Germany. The wait staff was so attentive and food came out in acceptable intervals. It was the best FIND all weekend for food choices.

I had the special of the day, beef tenderloin and my husband had the pork with mushroom and cream sauce; they both were very well prepared. The salad was delicious, my husband had the soup, very tasty and light. My son had the bratwurst and he loved it! The service was good, although slow, one of the cooks was not... More
