Lovely restaurant. Delicious food, great service, relaxed ambience. The staff were friendly and patient. All spoke perfect English. Very enjoyable. The only downside was that I later decided that we must have shorted them on the bill. They must have left something off. I usually...More

We really wanted to try traditional Swiss dining. There are many restaurants along the river. Initially we made reservations at Schiff downstairs, but once we saw the ambiance of the upstairs section we decided to dine there. The setting is just so lovely. We were...More

This would have been an excellent meal because the food was good and the service friendly although very slow. The atmosphere was excellent. However it was very clear that they were at least two waiters short leaving our poor waiter almost on his own. He...More

Instead of sitting downstairs by the river, we happened upstairs as it seemed the balcony had empty seats. When we got up there a lovely young lady from Portugal created us ( I believe her name was Claudia). We were surprised to find the upstairs...More
