Despite the long wait (almost 1 hour) as the restaurant was full, the food was really good and prices in the norm for Zurich. Friendly service and really nice atmosphere makes this restaurant a nice place for a good dinner with friends or cuple. Make sure to book in advance and to have a spot in the main dining room....

Nice restaurant and good food. Average decorum. The beer was not cold. Very expensive for the offerings. But its Zurich the whole city is extremely expensive. Staff should be more friendly
