I did meet friends and we decided for the Restaurant Oberes Triemli as it is walking distance from the Giardino by Atlantis and offers typical Swiss food. All our dishes were delicious and service staff outstanding! Great outdoor space with a pond where we could here the frogs. It was just awesome and I recommend it highly.

I love this restaurant when it comes to the venison season. It is by far the best one in Zurich. The service is very good and they even offer top ups if you like. The wine cared is diverse so there is something for everyone. Can't wait for the next venison season.

The restaurant is easily reached by tram or car (parking available). We were welcomed very friendly and the service was very attentive and forthcoming. We actually chose the 'Obere Triemli' specifically for its seasonal venison dishes and we were not disappointed. Every dish we had was excellent (Hirsch Entrecote and Rehrücken Diana) and the red wine by the glass I... More

This traditional restaurant is competently run by the fifth generation being in a 150 year old location - though the location at the edge of Zurich is only worth visiting because of the excellent food. It is well worth a special trip and offers godd value for money when compared to similar establishments in the city. If it is the... More

This restaurant is part of a hotel. It is in a very German area, but the effort to reach it is worth it. We took the tram out. One can take either number 9 or number 14. However be advised, that not all 9s go to Triemli. But, you can get off at the end of the line and change... More

It is a very nice and cosy restaurant. Many, many years ago it was a farmer house. It's run by the 5. generation. The service is just perfect and the food delicious and everything fresh. It is my favourite restaurant of Zurich.

Great place in Zurich for having a excellent dinner. Not only because of the fantastic garlic butter, but also for a great vine card, a excellent dining card (where I am sure everybody find something) and a absolutely friendly and warm service and staff, and last but not least for one of the best Vieille Prune (old damson plum) that...
