Nobody knows the SWISS destinations better than our staff. A restaurant that is not listed in every travel guide, an original bar, a charming café, or great tours with spectacular lookout points. Let our travel professionals inspire you with their tips.

If you're in San Francisco and looking for a good Italian restaurant, the Trattoria Pinocchio is a great choice. The food is good and the staff are very attentive. It's also reasonably priced: Starters (bruschetta for example) cost about 9 Dollars, pasta and pizza cost about 16 Dollars. The Trattoria's selection of wines is also impressive.

In San Francisco I recommend the organic restaurant Fish and Farm. It serves fish dishes in an entirely different way. But not just fish. Normally I don't eat lamb. But it was so delicious there that I went twice. Simply fantastic!

The Columbus Cafe is a good and reasonably priced establishment in a top location. It is situated directly on Lombard Street. The cafe is charmingly furnished and has a very friendly atmosphere. If you fancy a snack there's bagels, sandwiches, focaccia, salad – all at moderate prices. The recommended place to go if you're looking for American flair. And free wifi too!

My tip for San Francisco is what is without doubt the most special restaurant I know. The Stinking Rose. And although the recipe for its success is simple, it is definitely only for die-hard garlic enthusiasts: the restaurant, which is close to Chinatown, seasons its dishes with more than 3000 pounds of garlic – each month. The Stinking Rose serves garlic dishes: from starters to main courses to desserts. Even the cocktails are garlicky – instead of a Bloody Mary, there’s a Vampire Mary. Simply brilliant! An absolute must for any garlic-lover – and no need to worry: peppermint sweets are served at the end to freshen your breath.
