Very good, not excellent

Nothing wrong with this establishment. The service is perhaps a bit crude at times. And the meat is good but we've had better. The decor is simple if not even immemorable. However, we've had a great time and would go back. You won't regret going.

I greatly recommend them for a nice hot stone meal. Only advice i give is remember you are in Switzerland, one of... More

The speciality is meat on the hot stone. I have hardly seen such a wide selection of available meat (incl. zebra etc.). I had beef filet and it was very good. Price 39 CHF for 200g which is very reasonable considering it's Zurich. Meat comes with potato cuts and 3 sauces (cocktail, tartare and curry). The entrées are quite generous... More

We got there because of a deal online, salad was hopeless, rostbeef almost impossible to eat, fries ok (nothing hard to do indeed), dessert very very very poor. I would rather eat a kebab anywhere that sitting at this place again...maybe steaks are good but food quality is poor. Service was fast and friendly.

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
