Good Tapas for Zürich but not cheap

If you are craving decent tapas in Zürich the Monte Primero is worth a try, though I must say I am a bit spoiled by regularly enjoying true Andalusian tapas, which the Monte Primero cannot match. I actually liked the basic varieties best (pan con tomate, patatas bravas, judias fritas) while I... read more

The restaurant is on a quiet side street with outside dinner service and a nicely decorated interior. We could not read the menu and noticed on the chalk board a variety of tapas offered for a fixed price. We asked about fish and were brought at least ten different tapa plates with different types of fish, eggplant and potatoes. They... More

The outside of this restaurant looks like it's Swiss/German restaurant so I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it serves Spanish food. The service was friendly and our waiter was knowledgeable about the different wines & dishes. The food was delicious however a little on the pricey side. I would return here but probably only for a special occasion.

If ur not dressed like their target clients you get treated that way. Quiete unfriendly, arrogant staff (owner). 5small plates of tappa, two bottles of watter and three glasses of vine = 133francs. The food is very good thought and if u want to dine with zurich's medicore rich and wanna be rich u came to the right place.

I enjoyed eating tapas in this restaurant. There is plenty of tapas choice to pick from. Most tapas we tried were very good, the tortilla de patatas however was terrible. The waiter was very attentful and made us eat and drink more than we had planned (though I don't blame him for that), which made the bill at the end... More

Our dinner on a warm evening outside on the terrace of this restaurant was perfect. They have a broad selection of tapas which was the reason to try this noble and charming restaurant. The restaurant is located on a quiet road, small but enough space, tastefully decorated interior and a super clean bath room. Tapas were very tasty and of... More

The restaurant has a beautiful covered patio with the inside having wonderful carved wood panels. The food ranges from typical Swiss fare (done very well) to more exotic fish and game dishes (rabbit was delicious). It is two blocks from the Kunsthaus (art museum) so away from central Zurich (10 minutes walk from Bellevue tram station). If you are looking... More
