My old buddies and I, all Swiss, loved the traditional dishes being served. However, this is not the romantic chalet setting you might expect, rather its a very classy large dining room, which goes very well with the urban/bohemian flair of the Langstrasse area. Highly recommendable!

This restaurant serves good food with high quality ingredients in a nice atmosphere. Most of the courses offered are traditional Swiss or German, but the place is not the typical tourist trap serving low quality fondue at disproportionate prices. Another plus is that the offer changes with the time of the year, so that the food is always prepared with... More

A very nice restaurant with all kind of quality food. I can recommend it also for vegetarians. The service is excellent. There is enough space around the table and one can talk in a low voice. Very private atmosphere.

I dined here while visiting a friend in Zurich. I was very impressed with the professional old school style service in a very chic 1920's ambience. There is wall carpeting and the exposed ceiling pipes are lined with soft neon lights. As expected in Switzerland, the tables are impeccably set. They have a small menu but all of the ingredients...

I went with some friends for New Year's Eve. The bar area is quite beautiful. There is an enormous crystal chandelier and very high ceilings giving it a 20's feel. The waitstaff is very attentive but not particularly friendly. Great food with organic local ingredients, it is well prepared and presented. All of us were very happy with our starters,... More

We stopped by this place last evening for a drink before going to Ah Hua for dinner. They have a couple of tables outside for smokers whereas inside is bigger than expected with lots of tables and free standing space, quite old and traditional with high ceilings and lots of wood panneling. We did not eat, we just had a... More

Went there on the evening. Heard a lot about this place. Indeed the style and decoration were nice. The bar seems to be crowded on Thursday evening with a large choice of drinks I would go back to try the bar. I really not recommand the restaurant. Service was perfect, wine was good as well, but not the food. The... More
