I went to this place for dinner following the suggestion of a local girl that was working with me. The place is not big and the atmosphere reminded me the typical Italian "Trattorie". The waiter was really funny: he speaks English with a strong French accent and the result is hilarious. He suggested me to try a daily dish which... More

Simple but authentic, seasonal and local food in high quality, big portions! Service is very friendly, professional and attentive. Wine list could offer more Swiss and Zurich specialties.

This is a cozy restaurant frequented by locals. The food was fresh but salty. The service was mixed. The price inexpensive for Zurich standards.

A cute "Quartierbeiz" with open terrace and a nice main room, renovated, with daily specials and a simple basic menu card with local specialties, the wine list is good (maybe a little bit on the expensive side) , nice owners and staff

Zurich afficionados know: there is more than just the Langstrasse, there is alternatives to Bellevue and OK, the Kronenhalle is great, but try Seefeld. The seefeld area is full of nice, freindly, special and individually oriented bakeries, cafes, butchers - and restaurants. One of those fine places is the Schlussel. Do not expect livrees, be not surprised to find a... More

What a crappy and nonsense experience. Bad service or ownership with wrong mindset. Better avoided, esp if I had to reduce the number of people from the reservation at the very last minute. Then the old looking guy turned very angury and told me a lot of rude words. (We're not even a big group to start with). Lucky I... More

Two of us shared the Aperoplatli which includes cold meats cheese and some extraordinary smoked pickled onions and I had the seasons ravioli. To follow... More
