Medieval stone vaulting, a stone floor, and wine wherever your gaze falls sets the scene here, and the dozens of vintages available from Switzerland and around the world only heighten the mood; La Bonne Cave (The Good Cellar) accompanies its drops with good-value midday meals, satisfying pasta dishes, and nicely selected platters of antipasti and Swiss charcuterie (with Bresaola, salami, dried ham, chorizo, olive oil, and pickled vegetables). Menus come with wine suggestions and bottles from the attached wine shop can be bought to open with your meal. It's a lovely Old Town spot just near Reuss River and the Chapel Bridge, with a dash of boho charm and romance come evening, when the candles are lit and the lights are low.
