Excellent food at premium location with attentive staff. Tartar of beef and salmon (as a mix which I never had to date) as starter and Züri Gschnätzlets as main course - DELICIOUS.

The bar is just above the Main Station (HB) so there is no location more central. But it's far away from all people rushing around, the bar is actually nice and peaceful with a fantastic view onto Bahnhofstrasse. An excellent place to meet people for a quiet drink after work.

We needed to catch a 1300 train out of Zürich, so took the tram from our apartment to Zürich Hauptbahnhof with just enough time to grab a reasonably quick lunch. Not having enough time to venture very far from the train station and not to mention having luggage to deal with, we determined that we needed to eat in the... More

We needed to arrange to meet up with a business acquaintance and this venue was suggested. Positioned above the main concourse, the restaurant is conveniently located accessed by a lift, and views over the crowds below. A convenient place to meet and eat.

This is a delightful restaurant tucked away on the left-hand corner of the station (as you look at the trains); you have to take an elevator to get to it. It's small but not crowded with a view over the station and an up-market menu accompanied by appropriate, efficient service. Such a relief not to be asked if I am... More

Well done! Polite, friendly staff treated us as a party of two for having a business breakfast. Offers a nice range of food on a higher level (literally). All in all we enjoyed the quality and location very well. Good for talking in a quiet atmosphere.
