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!

A great spot to have a quick lunch. Very conveniently located and has a good selection of food and drinks. The Swiss Burger is highly recommended. In winter, there is a specialty of spicy beef with spaetzle. Worth a visit when in Zurich.

We visited on a week day (after work) with friends for drinks. The bar is located near the lake and in the upmarket area of Zurich. As soon as you enter, large chandeliers and old style decor is very welcoming. There was a nice buzz about and the bar was full even on a week day. The atmosphere was of... More

This is the ideal place for s drink after. They have a great selection of drinks and also serve food. The interior with high ceilings is compelling.
