Cafe & Bar Odeon has beautifully decorated marble walls, floors and table tops. There are approximately twenty high stools at the bar, and the chairs inside are wooden or padded booths.

The ODEON is a cafe, bar and restaurant at the same time. Here was and will be history written. Here is the place where Zurich meets. The central location at Bellevue and the nostalgic ambience makes the ODEON a popular location and meeting place from early to late.

Good place. We had a short break here for a glass of rose and ice-cream for our daughter. Nothing to complaint - all went well.

Crowded but festive atmosphere, great place to go post-opera for food and drinks. We had the Kalbgeschnetzeltes (delicious) and hamburgers (really good). I did hear that they can sometimes close early if they feel like it but that's a second-hand report. They are supposed to be open until 3 a.m. at this writing.

Very authentic old school bar and gastro pub on the edge of Olde Towne in Zurich. Great after work gathering spot with very yummy burgers and great local beers. Fun room!

I stopped here while walking the streets of Zurich. I ordered coffee with milk and the apple strudel. Both were excellent. The service was good. I enjoyed about 30 minutes outside under the sun watching people stroll by.

this was THE place when we lived here, but nowadays, just pricey, but it is still the Odeon by looks and some of the guests.

The ambience and service does not match the 100 year history of this cafe that used to be a gathering place for thinkers and artists.
