It was a warm September afternoon. We had been strolling through Zurich's old quarter and were famished. Seating ourselves into comfortable chairs outside overlooking the square we surprised the waiter with our wish for a meal. Despite the hour we could choose from the full menu. Service was swift, gracious and the food delicious.

This is one of the more popular restaurants in the old town area. Because of Trip advisor, I chose this restaurant to have a business dinner. I can attest the service was excellent and everybody in the restaurant was treated like royalty. I ordered the filet of beef, medium, with mushroom truffles, & fried potatoes. I forget what the fried... More

We found our experience at Kindli to be a tremendous one. An elegant restaurant within the Kindli hotel, it gives its customers a Swiss/European flavor with a simple and rich menu. I had the pumpkin curry soup and the veal escalopes with lemon sauce and fine noodles. The 2 dishes tasted great and were appropriately seasoned. The warm chocolate fondant... More

Kindli is actually an 'institution' in Zürich; it is situated in the old part of town, a couple of minutes from the famous Bahnhofstrasse: The interior is elegant, as is the service an food. One of us eats vegetarian, another a devoted meat eater; both had ample choices to satisfy not only their choice of food but also their palates.... More

We dined recently at Kindli and had one of the tastiest meals ever in Zurich. The food is traditional Swiss cuisine with a very creative and professional touch. Every dish was delicious including a truffle cream soup, perfectly cooked veal in several variations - all first class. The wine list included an excellent pinot noir from the Zurich area. The...

The food, service & atmosphere were just right. Kindli is cozy and warm. It's quite pricey but worth it!

Located in the old town, which is de rigeur, it's elegantly low-key, with dim lighting, friendly staff, and good cuisine. Definitely on the small side, which makes it quaint in my book. Not on the cheap side of things, but well worth it. The Niçoise is especially nice.

I had decided that I was going to love this place even before I sat down, but then I loved it even more. Located in the old town with a classic Swiss look from the small plaza, I had spotted this restaurant and was fortunate to be able to negotiate my dinner seating without a reservation. The truffle risotto immediately... More
