very charming place with excellent service. but the best was clearly the outstanding cordon bleu. cooked to perfection, excellent cheese, pretty big and supertasty. the sides of rice and spinach were fine as well but not as impressive. I never had a better one in my life. it is not cheap but who cares for such a masterpiece. i was... More

Zürich is full of great restaurants, but I have the say that this place is very special. Reservations are essential for visitors to the city as the locals like to keep this place to themselves. The setting is intimate when this small bar and maybe 20 tables. The maitre'd is a lively and colorful character who works closely with the... More

Went over lunch with an internal client. Good food and warm atmosphere but it took ages to be served and to collect the bill. Soup was ok, although too hot and served in a small bowl (to keep it warm longer! Grrr) so i got burnt which made the rest of my lunch unpleasant. We were sitting in the big... More

The excellent wine list here is a book! The friendly Swiss owner is a wine buff and a vintner in France himself, producing a very good and reasonably priced Bordeaux - style red. The food is very tasty and freshly prepared to perfection. Comfort food heaven! Tender and juicy entrecote in cognac mustard sauce, soft venison steaks, very fresh and... More

Small cosy restaurant next to Bahnhofstrassse. Great food, mainly traditionall swiss dishes in good quality. Great wines recommended by the charismatic host, Bü. Top professional service. At lunch the place is crowded with bankers, in the evening more relaxed.

Prices are very high, which is ok if you want to impress a business contact or are otherwise on expenses. It is less ok when you are paying for yourself. The quality of the food is high, though I found the service lackluster on a busy Wednesday lunchtime. The Mixed the sparkling and still water and forgot about an order... More

We had not visited this restaurant for many years but were so impressed and delighted with the warm and friendly service and the quality of food that we shall certainly become a more regular visitor. We booked by phone with the restaurant and were given a very nice window table. The service was warm and attentive and the owner of... More

I love everything about this place. It's in the perfect setting in Zurich, the restaurant itself is lovely and sit at front in the large windows. I loved all of the recommendations from the waiter who was helpful and the chef who came out to greet us. The recommended pear goat cheese salad was perfectly paired with the house private... More

Very nice food. But the wine is the highlight. Don't even choose wine from the menu, let the manager choose it for you. Lovely atmosphere and service was great. Thoroughly enjoyable. Cordon blue was great.
