I had a totally unexpected, incredible experience there. Swingside is very unassuming on the outside and inside - you sort of feel like you're eating at a relative's place for a big meal. Complete with cat that wanders around the restaurant, seemingly indifferent to the various tasty smells wafting about the restaurant.
The food was incredible. The menu changes frequently, but we had had a very good halibut ceviche to start, and I had a great rabbit specialty. The service was as close to perfect as you can get. Our waiter was entertaining in an unassuming way, and did a great job matching the light hearted mood of our party. We lingered at the restaurant for a while and finished with a few glasses of Sauterne and a chocolate torte.
We so thoroughly enjoyed our experience that we left a 35% tip. I think that says it all.
