My long time favorite Spanish restaurant in Zurich. Simply amazing food, mostly excellent Service, especially by Carlos (manager) and Samet. Must try are the Tapas: best gambas al ajillo, dried iberico ham and pimientos del padron. One of the best beef in town (Beef Tenderloin - US Prime Beef), simply delicious. Excellent wine menu. The prices are very high but you will experience a great ambiance as well as constantly impacable food and quality.

When in Zurich I always try and fit in a meal at this Spanish restaurant in the old part of the city. My favourate starters are the garlic shrimps and calamari.

The Mistkratzerli (grilled baby chicken) is always outstanding - presented in 2 servings (the Swiss way) one can ask for French fries with the one serving and rice or panfried potatoes with the other.

Their red housewine is excellent and good value for money. Service is always professional and friendly.

Well worth a visit.

During our stay in Zürich we went two times to this restaurant, because of the excellent quality, but also because you are not in the middle of the touristic area. A lot of locals come to this restaurant. It is not cheap, but the food is fantastic. The first time we have eaten Dorade Royal, the second time top quality beef. They serve some good Spanish wines by the glass. The place to choose if you need a place away from the crowd, where you can be at ease on the terrace and enjoy good quality food. We loved it.

We visited this restaurant in June 2017 and for some reason my review at that time finished up in cyberspace as it was sent from my phone - rather than my PC. Anyway, this review is based on notes, receipts and our combined memory.
Day83 and we came across the Spanish restaurant by chance so decided to investigate.
Decor is as expected and because it's in the old town, for tourist than quality but with Zurich prices - think A$50 a main that would be half that at home.
We soldiered on with Spanish fare being a change, but it was no surprise when 2 pre's, a bottle of Chianti (good) 2 mains and a shared taps came to A$201.
Expensive for what we experienced, but par for the course in Zurich old town. 7/10
