We ate outside. Widdergasse is a lovely cobbled area. The Lumiere is in a good location. The french menu and wine list are 'One of the best'. This was a treat. It was not disappointing at all. The food is 'Art on a Plate'. It tasted nearly as good as it looked.(And it tasted wonderful every mouthful). We opted for... More

Is probably one of the few restaurants that I have been more than once during my business trips in Zurich. Great food. A bit expensive but worth it. The menu is small but everything are great!

This is a small restaurant with around 12 tables, with a nice selection of wines. Every dish we ordered, left the table empty. It is a mix between Spanish, French and Swiss, and its greatly accomplished. Very nice, recommended. (Order a wine called I see Kay, it was really good)

Wow , this wonderful , small restaurant just off Bahnhofstrasse has a great setting and magnificent ambiance . Booking is absolutely essential The steak and French fries are a must. The preparation of the steak is unique and is succulent and perfectly prepared. I will definitely be back.

Food was great and service was excellent. Just a nice classy restaurant and although Zurich is super expensive, the restaurants prices are very fair.

All the below reviews are too true: excellent ambience, excellent service, excellent food. However, oh how envious I was when I saw what most of the in the know were ordering - the steak and frites - albeit with a house twist. I will be back just for that!

I had lunch at Lumiere on Friday. It's a very quaint and cosy restaurant with excellent service. The menu is not that large, but good. Both of us had nuslisalat for starters and it was swimming in dressing - what a pity. It's a Swiss thing actually because I get it wherever I go and normally ask for my dressing... More

Not a lot to say here, an excellent place to eat in a very small restaurant. It fills up quickly on weekend so make sure you reserve early. People tend to cal it a bit pricey but I think for Zurich it is still a very good value.
