The restaurant is located 5 min on foot from the Zurich HB railroad station. The interior is a classic one. There is no free wifi there. There are tables outside, with awnings. But we were inside. The staff is very polite, complaisant and competent. The young waitress served our table was very nice and pretty. We tried duck breast and... More

I had a wonderful dinner with a business colleague at Restaurant Sein. I have dined at many restaurants in Zurich and I would put this as one of the best. The service, ambience and food was excellent.

Have been there for dinner with my wife, and ordered the menu,food and timing and service was more than excellent, my only wish is a recommendation of suitable wine for each course, on their wine list they only have 4 / 4 wine by the glass, the selection of bottled wines is quite fine, but if you are just a...

This is the second time we pay a visit to Sein on a business dinner. The first time we took the menu and this time we went for 3 courses a la carte. I had quail, duck liver and green peas risotto, then a calf steak with green asparagus and salted new potatoes as a main. For dessert we went... More

Ended up at Sein with my wife last week after shopping. It's quite centrally located of Bahnhofstrasse and close to the main station. From the first moment one realises the outstanding service, unfortunatelly not that common anymore to have staff really knowing what they are doing. This was for sure the first big plus. The menu has a decent selection... More
