The only place we ate in Zurich!

My boyfriend and I were on a tight budget during our travels. While in Switzerland we bought every meal from the local grocery except one: this one! It was fantastic. We weren't looking for much in terms of trendiness or cost and this was perfect. Casual, affordable, and delicious. The line was out... read more

My boyfriend and I were on a tight budget during our travels. While in Switzerland we bought every meal from the local grocery except one: this one! It was fantastic. We weren't looking for much in terms of trendiness or cost and this was perfect. Casual, affordable, and delicious. The line was out the door but it moved very quick.

Yeah it is famous for its sausage and yes it is the best in town. Proper quality to stull "normal" price. Make it take away. The interieur is not like cool to be there. Attention the mustard is hot!

This is the best place where you can find a real Bratwurst in Zurich! You can just go there, take your Bratwurst with bread and hot mustard and eat it in the beautiful Bellevue platz or sitting by the lake! It's worth it and you will come back! Price are reasonable.

Hubby & I decided to try this place, knowing how popular it is for bratwursts with the locals, despite me not being a huge brat eater. The line moves smoothly & efficiently, so it really is a good spot for a quick meal. The place was packed with the post work crowd, pre-opera guests, young adults...a real mix, so lots... More

So, this place was a bit different. You get your sausage and then grab a roll and mustard from the counter. I prefer the sausage in a bun/roll vs. eating separately (you couldn't eat this while walking for example). Anyway, the sausage, roll and even the mustard were all tasty. Also tried the potato salad (included in the menu 1... More

I had the Curry wurst here, I know it's supposed to be a Berlin thing, but this was so delicious. Accompanied with a beer and bread roll it was a great quick lunch. And relatively inexpensive too.

I usually take my out of town guests here when the stands Lakeside are closed. Just so they can sample Swiss street food: Bratwurst und brot.

Everytime we go to Zurich for family vacation, we will go to Sternen Grill at least once for sure. To try their sausage with bread is a must! Although I'm not a big fan of hard bread in general, I love their bread to go with the sausages.

Unfortunately this is heading downhills. The famous ausages are burnt, staff is too stressed and very often rude. Sometimes it's hard to communicate in any language with them (german or english). A lot of smokers

We went there after reading some reviews online. Yes, for Zurich this may be something "special" but for all rest countries, even for non-European ones, this is a simple wurst/grill place, having simple but too expensive finger food. I will never go again, even if the good was not bad.
