Located near the Paradeplatz, in the heart of the banking area of Zürich. I often choose the place for a coffee break to meet my colleagues. The restaurant has some nice table outside along Talstrasse, as well as a cozy interior with brown, leather sofas.

I knew the restaurant from lunches, but never went for dinner. As we have booked tickets for a concert nearby, We just walked in for a quick dinner. After 6 pm you may select their roastbeef from the trolley, a discretion for 39.- chf (currently). It is served with grilled vegetables, country fries and a selection of home made sauces.... More

Enjoyed a very special evening at this restaurant - fund-raising for Zurcher Lighthouse. The staff were super-friendly (in particular the very attentive and polite manager whose name I did not get, alas) and the food was excellent with very good service and no hurry afterwards to leave. I subsequently went there for lunch and it was wonderful.

We reserved a table for a group of six on a Friday evening and were told about some live music that evening. This turned out to be a misunderstanding, since the restaurant was host to a vocal concert of a local Palliative Care center... The other (older) patrons attended explicitly to listen to the concert, while we intended to enjoy... More

Not sure if restaurant is good, if it is empty on friday evening. We arived a bit before 9pm. For few minutes noone comes to meet us and finally some girls arives and informs us that they can serve one drink. If you do not want to work, just lock a door.

Whilst the new decor has more of a bistro business style there is nothing else to motivate a return visit. It was an early Friday evening and management had clearly decided a skeleton staff were needed. One waiter for the whole restaurant. The service was very mixed although after an initial brusque greeting the attitude improved. The menu comprised a... More

I had a work dinner here and considering we were more than 20 person the service and the food were good. I had a really great lentil soup as starter and a good sea-bass as main course, served with smashed potatoes. The chocholate mousse served with a small chocholate cake was not so good and the heart of the cake... More

We were for dinner, but the place looked like a typical business lunch restaurant, so numerous in cities like Zurich. The food was of superior quality, prepared with care and very tasty. Wine list was adequately long to make a even demanding customer satisfied. Although the place was not even half full, the service was a bit hesitant, even avoiding... More
