Zurich afficionados know: there is more than just the Langstrasse, there is alternatives to Bellevue and OK, the Kronenhalle is great, but try Seefeld. The seefeld area is full of nice, freindly, special and individually oriented bakeries, cafes, butchers - and restaurants. One of those fine places is the Schlussel. Do not expect livrees, be not surprised to find a... More

What a crappy and nonsense experience. Bad service or ownership with wrong mindset. Better avoided, esp if I had to reduce the number of people from the reservation at the very last minute. Then the old looking guy turned very angury and told me a lot of rude words. (We're not even a big group to start with). Lucky I... More

This is a fantastic unpretentious local restaurant with beautifully cooked delicious food and the friendliest service imaginable. I was here with my partner and a friend and all three of us were delighted with it. Two of us shared the Aperoplatli which includes cold meats cheese and some extraordinary smoked pickled onions and I had the seasons ravioli. To follow... More

Located in a residential area about a brisk 20 minute walk from the Helmhaus hotel. Bistro interior is cozy with light colored walls with lots of windows. Food is inventive takes on traditional Swiss/German food. Huge portions and very hearty. If you order an appetizer, you might want to consider splitting the main course unless you're famished. Food was tasty... More

It's not the most trendy place but offers simple good food and friendly service. If you would like to have proper substance, here you go - you would get very good 'grilled fish', 'stewed beef', 'ratatouille' and ”chocolate mouse desserts” etc.  Good portion, simple but rather "strong" taste, and family-friendly atmosphere. But I do remind you it's not a sophisticated... More

Schlussel seems to be a perfect fit for the quality home style dinner. I can hardly make a choice what I liked more - the atmosphere or the food. The service is tremendous, the same is about food. I tried a very interesting vine based cream soup - never tried such a soup before. Fish was also good. So, not... More

If you look for a small restaurant with great food, very friendly service and homely atmosphere, this is the place to dine in Zurich! All our dishes were excellent, the team caring about us very heartful and even the Chef de Cuisine came to see us at our table to make sure everything was well. Pure Swiss hospitality! We will...

In June I went for the second time to Schlussel and once again I found it special. I lived in Switzerland for few years and although the food quality is very good I always found it difficult to really leave a restaurant with the feeling of having experienced something special. That was always the case when I visited Restaurant Schlussel.... More

My last visit to the Schlussel was on the occasion of my birthday. Four friends were visiting from the United States, so I wanted the evening to reflect a casual, yet urbane adaptation of local Swiss cuisine. On each visit, the Schlussel has always met or surpassed my expectations. Our server was absolutely charming, making the visiting guests feel right... More
