I have been there several times. The restaurant offers a nice service in a very nice decor. Nice for afternoon coffee / tea with a piece of cake you can choose from the display. Good cocktail bar in the evening. Food: regular Swiss German menu.

I just attended this basically very nice place in order to celebrate 'Martini'. The 'martini-goose' unfortunately was not at all great: extremely dry and cold. The wine and the service, however, were nice.

This is a very old restaurant of Zurich city. Restaurant and bar is just amazing. Awesome menu. Seasonal foods and desserts are very delicious.
