The Nordsee offers an excellent place to grab a quick bite, and provides for good value given the generous portions offered. Primarily sea food, the food is tasty and given the high turnover of the restaurant always guaranteed to be fresh.

I love the choice of seafood meals at this fast food restaurant (although I am not keen on fast food).

Conveniently located at the main train station, Nordsee offers a good range of seafood options. For better value for money, I would recommend the fried/grilled (?) fish plate. You get a fillet of fish, potatoes and salad for about CHF 17. Service was friendly and there was plenty of seating available.

Coming from North America, I was stunned to see the price of fast food in Switzerland. We had a 3 hour layover at the main train station and needed a place to sit down and have a meal. Burger King in the train station and McDonald's across the street charged more than double what it costs at home. We stumbled... More

I've never been to a place like this...great seafood choices. I settled for a cold herring sandwich and fries. Very good. My partner's tuna sandwich was so-so. This was in the Central Railway Station (one floor below the main floor). I'd go back again and try.

I find many Swiss restaurants pile on the salt.... Come to expect it ,sadly WHY?. It can be added later?! This place has quite a good turnover fish so fresh but all a bit routine. The charm is missing.....

We were waiting to leave Zurich and picked up sandwiches here to take with us. Ordered a smoked salmon samdwich on nut bread, with some cream cheese and lettuce. It was excellent. The price was fair 7fs60 for this big fresh sandwich. They also have fried fish, salads, warm dishes. You can take away or eat in.

I've eaten at Nordsee before, and this one isn't up to par. Perhaps I ordered the wrong thing, but it smelled as if it had been sitting around for a long time (no surprise there given the style of Nordsee). Anyway, I'd just pick another place to eat.
