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.

We choose to have breakfast at Cafe & Bar Odeon in Zurich as it is centrally located and opens early [8am]. There is a good choice of breakfasts including cooked dishes as well as an a la carte menu. Probably my failing as a 'foreigner' but I ordered a roll assuming butter/jam were standard. How wrong could I be! Just... More

Bustling city centre bar/restaurant with a formidable history (Einstein, Joyce, Lenin...). High-ceilings, mirrors, and full-on Jugendstil. I found the place fascinating, and yes, you do have to wait for a table to become free while locals have very leisurely coffee or beer. It's that kind of place, frequented by tourists and locals alike, if you want fast-food you need a... More

Is and historical place and is worth visiting. I went there on a rainy day and is was really nice to have a cup of coffe inside, it was quite crowded so it took a long time to order and to get the check, but still nice.

Stopped at Odeon for lunch, had been looking forward to it for quite some time and was not disappointed. We had a varied menu for lunch, and it was all excellent. After lunch cappuccino was also outstanding. I had expected it to be and it was, which is kind of delightful.

The coffee at odeon is extremely good. Also the schnitzel is delicious. The place is quite nice near a busy square in Zürich, you can sit and watch the people pass by. The only downside was the very unfriendly waiter.. He was very grumpy and impatient..

What a fantastic find this was! Stopped for a drink as we were passing, took a quick look at the menu and stopped for our evening meal. When we arrived, the bar was quite quiet although all the outside tables had been taken. So we found a table for two in a small nook in the window. We both chose... More
