Friendly staff. Honest food. With a free view over the lake from the upper floor. Famous for their Bratwurst. The staff is not pushy and you can (if you wish) share one of the long tables.

Sternen Grill has the best bratwurst, bürli, and beer anywhere. Best enjoyed standing outside at a table.

Truly traditional Swiss sausages and other fast foods to take out or eat there at seated or standing tables. Busy atmosphere from dawn to dusk. The place is so famous it is continuously packed.

I have been told by those who may know, that the traditional St Gallen bratwurst is available here in Zürich. I do know that this is a extremely tasty lunch, of which those in the the fast moving queue may also be aware.

My partner and I were wandering around Zurich and looking for a lunchtime fix. The queue of people of all ages reaching outside tempted us in. Not understanding the term Gold Burli I was a little taken aback just to be handed a bratwurst wrapped in paper - a few minutes later I realised I could pick up a Burli... More

The restaurant has two floors. the one below is more of a fast food stand (but high quality), the restaurant above have sitting places and different menu (probably more items on top on what below). I had hash browns with onion sauce, schnitzel and and the house sausage and bread (yes, I was hungry:-)). All are delicious and quickly prepared.... More

A great cheap and cheery stop for a hunger fix up in the heart of Zurich's Bellevue area. The locals are very proud of their special Canton St. Gallen bratwurst (veal and pork) for around 7 francs plus a bread ("Bürli") with an exterior hard enough to serve as a defense weapon but interior soft enough to eat - so...

Friendly restaurant, located just above the lake! We ate here for New Year's eve and the atmosphere was very nice! Food is simple and well presented, and that's ok..but quantity, in my opinion, doesn't worth the price - even if it's Zurich. Service was simply perfect!

We go to this grill 2-3 times every visit and enjoy it. The wait staff is excellent and the atmosphere is enjoyable. Another great people watching place. Try the upstairs as they have a fuller menu. The outside seating is nice and you always meet nice people here. Wonderful restrooms in the lower level and access to all floors is... More

Superb tasting veal sausages - plain or in currywurst style. Burger was quite decent too. If I could change one thing, it would be swapping the rock hard bread that came along with it. Thing was harder than adamantium; should have spared some thought for senior citizens? Don't be put off by the long queue at times, really fast service... More
