Sit where Lenin and Einstein sat

I take my out of town friends here for the history and ambiance of the place. Good coffee, chocolate and cakes.

It was quite late on a Wednesday evening when we stopped in for drinks, but the cafe was still busy. Definitely a cool experience to sit, chat and enjoy the music and candlelight, marble walls and brass details while imagining all of the fascinating conversations and debates that happened in that space since the early 1900's! So many interesting people... More

Great situated in the middle of town. A bit pricy and staff not very friendly. If a bar is closing down, I would expect to be informed and not just have the Sun shades closed over our heads!

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...
