pro: - event-location (food on a hot stone), good for groups - having been here I know now that Rolli's Steakhouse is way better in every aspect con: - pretty sure they serve less weight than advertised - meat of very average quality - too few service personnel, service not very friendly - half of the desserts were sold out...

This is a fantastic place! Mostly I took the US ribeye or the horse tenderloin on a hot stone. The meat is always of high quality and cheap for Zurich standards. Also the Schnitzel is very tasty and huuge ;) The owner has opened a new place called Prime Steak House not far at Rebgasse near Stauffacher square. The Prime... More

It's the first time I have had steak cooked on a hot stone. It was very good. There's a variety of steaks to try, including antelope, bison as well as ribeye, which was my choice.

One of the waitresses was a bit funny (she didn't want to let us sit on the terrace, even though it was boiling and other people were on there), but all of the other staff were great. We had the steaks on the hot stones: the meat is slightly cooked when it arrives, and you finish it off to your... More

I was there 2 weeks ago with friends for lunch and was amazed about service, quality of the meat (filet on hot stone, menu no 4 for 27.- CHF!!!) and returned today for lunch. It was again fantastic and I would highly recommend. It has already become one of my favorites in Zurich. And I have not yet tried anything... More

This is a small restaurant whose specialty is meat. The menu offers beef, chicken, lamb, zebra, ostrich and much more. Waiters deliver your order to the table along with a hot stone. The meat comes to the table lightly seared and then diners use the stone to cook the meat to their liking. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very... More

The concept of receiving your stake just slightly fried and a hot stone allowing you to cook your meat is great. No more under fried or overfried steaks as you get full control over cooking process. The ambiance could use a bit of improvement as the place is slightly devoid of personality. Restaurant is certainly a good choice if you... More

I've been to the Nachtigall a couple of times and I usually order the Kalbsschnitzel which has always been great (and huuuge). However, this time I wanted to try something else and ordered kangaroo on the "hot stone". So far, I have always been pleased by the food served at the Nachtigall but I was very disappointed by how the... More

The Nachtigall is a nice restaurant for the meat.. in fact the speciality in here is the meat that on the hot stone. You get raw meat on a plate, and the bring you a hot stone, so that you can cook the meat on your own hot stone. Of course not too long! It’s served with country potatoes and... More
