Every so often we find a restaurant keeps us coming back… and back. We’ve checked out Josef summer and winter, rain and shine, and it always delivers laid-back cool, interesting cuisine and killer cocktails. Popular all year round, we particularly love it in winter; warm and welcoming, the dark wood-panelled interior, low lit bar and iconic photo collage courtesy of Alain Kupper set the stylish scene. Arrive a little early for a mojito or two before dinner, all the better to take in the Kreis 5 cool crowd at play. Food-wise, the concept is to indulge in a number of small courses – three plus dessert for a normal appetite, a few more if you are particularly peckish. The modern Swiss menu changes daily, but is always interesting, generally excellent and well complemented by a short, well-chosen wine list. Best of all, all this fabulousness comes with a reasonable price tag.
