I started the blog in October 2009, while living in Milan which I definitely consider to be one of the food capitals of the world. I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems! If you know a place worth going, please drop a line to: info@thediningexperience.org.
Currently, I am a member of the following food-related associations: Chevalier @Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Zurich-Ville; Membre Gourmet Dégustateur @Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Dégustateurs [OMGD]; Gesellschafter @Goldener Fisch and Member @Slowfood Convivium Zurich City.

Great dishes but absolutely weak service: Restaurant La Môme (7. September 2019)

Great dishes but absolutely weak service: Restaurant La Môme (7. September 2019)

After an excessive day on La Guerite it turned out to be rather difficult to motivate the whole group to go for dinner. We had booked a table at 10:30pm and ultimately ended up getting a table at around 11:30pm. Frankly, I get the French laissez-faire lifestyle but waiting more than an hour for your […]

Amazing party location Mykonos style: Restaurant La Guérite (7. September 2019)

Talking about a really nice and lasting experience while in Cannes, you should pay the La Guérite a visit! The La Guérite is located on the little island right in front of Cannes called “La Marguerite” and you can only get there if you book in advance and use the restaurants boat shuttle service. We […]

Surprisingly good dishes in a lovely sea front setting: Restaurant Le Bénitier (7. September 2019)

Surprisingly good dishes in a lovely sea front setting: Restaurant Le Bénitier (7. September 2019)

If you are looking for a place to have a tasty breakfast in a nice atmosphere, the Le Bénitier is the right place in Cannes. I went for the “Hawaiian poke bowl with mint sauce, salmon tatar, cucumber, avocado, mango, onion and rice” (EUR 21.00) which is admittedly a bit heavy for a breakfast but […]

Good dishes right next to the sea front: Rivièra Beach Club (6. September 2019)

Good dishes right next to the sea front: Rivièra Beach Club (6. September 2019)

The Rivièra Beach Club is a nice location for a company event as the atmosphere right next to the sea shore is quite lovely. And the food is surprisingly decent – especially considering that we were a large group of approximately 60 people for dinner. It started with a “salad, avocado, prawns, melon, crab meat, […]

Delicious shisha but definitely overpriced: Le Boston Café (6. September 2019)

Delicious shisha but definitely overpriced: Le Boston Café (6. September 2019)

When you really crave a good shisha and there isn’t really any option around, then you end up paying EUR 40.00 for a “shisha de pomme” which seems a bit over the top. And frankly, it is. Admittedly, the shisha was good and enjoyable and also good in terms of flavor intensity. But EUR 40.00 […]

Delicious dishes but not really up to date service performance: Restaurant Le Tube (5. September 2019)

Delicious dishes but not really up to date service performance: Restaurant Le Tube (5. September 2019)

The Le Tube is a rather large premise in the center of Cannes and it is overall quite lovely in terms of atmosphere but it is also rather loud and if you are in a larger group you will definitely spend some time waiting for the food and beverages. However, the dishes are not so […]

Lovely place with good food: Restaurant Blaue Ente (3. September 2019)

Lovely place with good food: Restaurant Blaue Ente (3. September 2019)

I was in the Blaue Ente about 2 years ago and it was time to return again, so I decided to have something light that evening starting with a “peach burrata, pine nuts, basil” (CHF 23.00) which tasted surprisingly good. Somehow I was rather skeptical about the combination of the sweet peaches with the salty […]

A surprisingly good steak house in St. Gallen: Restaurant Al Capone (1. September 2019)

A surprisingly good steak house in St. Gallen: Restaurant Al Capone (1. September 2019)

The cool thing about St. Gallen is its price level. I keep forgetting that the same thing in St. Gallen costs about 2/3 of what it would cost in Zurich. When reading that there was a starter caesar salad for CHF 10.80, I thought it was going to be tiny. It wasn’t! The “caesar salad […]
