... however the service was not up to expectations we had. We were group of 10 people and had lots of understanding nevertheless plates were not taken away so we could hardly fit coffee beside drinks etc... So finally we went for desert somewhere else... Pitty as I would like to enjoy that food again...

"When in Rome" as the saying goes. We wanted to eat Swiss food and this place serves just that. The staff are friendly and as Swiss prices go the place seemed reasonable. Have eaten here before and would happily eat here again.

Very nice restaurant in the tourist/old town. We did not book and we still had a nice table by the window on Saturday evening. Rimantic setting in a rainy evening. We had two starters, two mains and one dessert to share. Plates nicely prepared, attentive and fast service. Would come back again.

We found this restaurant while wandering through old town. The veal was delicious and the red wine risotto was to die for! Definitely recommend as this was the best food we had on a 9 day trip in Zurich.

Wandered in off the street after passing on various other options. Glad we did. Nice ambiance, excellent goat cheese appetizer, well-prepared turkey dinner with a twist, friendly and attentive service. Prices NOT expensive, but typical Zurich!

We were a group of 4 for an international business dinner. Food, wine, atmosphere are very good. Staff very nice and accommodating. English translation of the menu caused us just very small questions for a moment.

Off the main drag in a courtyard with pretty fountain. Delicious food. Seating indoors and out. I preferred out. Afternoon shade perfect on hot day. Delicious tasty food. Friendly service and old style architecture surrounds.
