a great classic

Was not since several years but it didn't changed at all... same vibrant terrace next to Bellevue. the terrace on the lateral is more quiet. Food is fine like a brasserie.

We sat outside for lunch and despite being busy we had a good meal and the service was humorous and efficient. We ordered a Chicken Salad which was a generous portion.

Sat outside and waited for over a half hour for service. The waiter passed up our table several times, gave us a menu and said he would be back for our order about 10 minutes in and never came back. The table next to us also left because of a lack of service. Pass this place up and go to... More

The Odeon preserve the antique style and his reputation dwells - maybe too much - on the prestigious visitors of the past. However, it's located in a very nice corner of Bellvue in Zürich and frequted by diverse type of people which makes it interesting. Quiet in the winter ter time, has its best in summer where you can sit... More

We went there for a late dinner. The young waiter with a strange hairstyle tried to show us to a squashed table for two but we stood our ground and refused to be "finished with dinner within 30 minutes" which the other, older and nicer waiter tried to insist upon, telling us it was reserved later.....We got our (small) table...

It was a pleasure to visit such a historical place, which Lenin, Einstein and other famouse persons liked to visit. Tasty deserts and drinks. However, it is very overcrowded due to it's popularity.

Just saw a waiter argue with a group of nice clients ordering orange juice. They complained the OJ was rancid and the waiter- already in a bad mood while waiting on us - argued with them that they were wrong and the OJ was good. Heated argument. The waiter would not let go. The clients got up and left. I... More

We headed here for a few beers to escape the cold weather. It has a cosy and friendly atmosphere. Very Swiss. Good quality beers. A great selection of wines and spirits. We did not eat - but the food looked filling and hearty. A great find if you want to feel you are in Switzerland!
