Opening hours depend on weather, as I stopped by one day and the place was dark in the morning, my next visit they were open early and the sidewalk tables on the Limmat were all set up. I had originally taken a seat at one of the sidewalk tables, but immediately moved inside as a very large group was departing.... More

All I wanted was to sit down and have a cup of coffee. So, this was the perfect place. Maybe that is why the place became quickly busy because it was 'coffee' and 'rest' time for tourist? I sat outside. The waitress was fine with a bit of smile. Ordinary coffee 5 fr = roughly 5 euro. It is Swiss.... More

Nice location by the river. Hot day made for very comfortable meal under the umbrella. Food was just ok, and service was too.

The cafe is placed directly on the river and the view is excellent. The food however is a different story. I can't recommend this place.

Very nice little cafe particularly in good weather when one can sit right next to the water. The perfect romantic Zurich experience with the ducks and swans on the river for background.

Quaint little cafe overlooking the Linmat River. We had the Spaetzle baked with Raclette cheese and the Ravioli Spinach-Ricotta baked with Raclette cheese. Both dishes very average and rather uninspiring. So go there, have coffee and enjoy the views but do not expect a gourmet meal.

So we got dropped off around the corner on our first day here, hadn't had any breakfast so we wanted to grab something quick. Seemed like the only option. It's not a bad place for a quick coffee and small bite to eat, but does not seem at all like a place I would come to for a proper lunch... More

If cafes-restaurants are about location and food this has the location and great views. Food was ok but nothing extraordinary and felt like being where tourist come. It was ok if you are in the area and want to enjoy the views but otherwise you can find better places.

Worst place in Zurich so far. Living here for more than a year and this place is another league... Nice location right next to the river and this is probably why they are still there; many first (and one time) visitors. It's a tourist trap. A part from the fact that half the menu wasn't available and that nothing was... More
