This is a bratwurst place. The ground floor is the takeaway section and people can also stand around the small tables and eat Upstairs is the proper restaurant I just did takeaway and ordered 1 of each of the 2 sausages. Bread was packaged together. Sausages were ok and bread was too hard

A very mild Christmas in Zurich this year and we were able to sit outside on the narrow balcony of The Sternen Grill and enjoy a very nice lunch. Overlooking Bellevueplatz on a warm winters day was superb. We ordered a variety of sausage dishes and a fish and chips via a good ordering system of provided cards and pencils.... More

We had no dining options on NYE, stumbled upon this place was had a lineup. Ordered a burger and roast chicken. Was fairly good, not super amazing, pricey for what it was but kind of expected in Zurich.

The bratwurst is so good you can eat it just by itself and relish it. Charred to perfection and served hot, this has got to be the best bratwurst I've had. The prices for a joint like this are surprisingly low. And I dare say they are actually more affordable than any major fast food chain here in Zurich. Would... More

Hotdogs overrated and overpriced!!!! Hebrew National dogs much better at one tenth the price ! 5 euros for a fried hotdog ! Save your cash and eat somewhere else except here.

For 5 Swissfrancs you get our hotdog, made on demand. A special bread with a tasty boiled sausage (not fried) called "Wienerli", served with our hot "Sternen Grill" mustard, or Heinz Ketchup or our home made bruzzito Sauce (a kind of cocktail Sauce) Sorry, that you didn't like it - we love it!

Very busy place - almost like Curry 36 in Berlin - at rush hours. Te setting however is a bit posh with tables and chairs the have a fur to wrap around you. Very funny if you think how a Currywurst is served in Ruhrgebiet or Berlin. We tried the S.Galler and Cervelat. Personally did like the cervelat better as... More

We run to der Sternen for our first Zurich meal. The most casual dining spot. Like an American hot dog stand but it is fabulous. Try going other then meal times or you will wait in line and will not get a table. We have been enjoying the bratwurst, boules, and pommel frites for 35 years. You will see bankers,... More

Bratwurst at there best. This temple to the art of grilling is STRICTLY CASUAL. You may be lucky enough to find a table with chairs or a high top but you may need to lean against a wall since during lunch or dinner there are long lines for there ever popular perfectly grilled brat, pomme frites, bulles, and beer.

The Sternen Grill has been a local landmark for decades! It has been recently renovated (and was actually closed for quite a while) but I was pleased to see that while it looks different, the menu has not changed much. The thing to eat is either a Bratwurst or a Cervelat together with a beer. The sausages are trucked in... More
