This is a cozy restaurant frequented by locals. The food was fresh but salty. The service was mixed. The price inexpensive for Zurich standards.

A cute "Quartierbeiz" with open terrace and a nice main room, renovated, with daily specials and a simple basic menu card with local specialties, the wine list is good (maybe a little bit on the expensive side) , nice owners and staff

This was mycsevond visit to the Schlüssel, the food is very simple, but tasty and fresh. The service is for Zurich outstanding and very personal. And you have to try the "Schoggicreme"... to live for!

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
