Positive: - wonderful potato soup - quality food - interesting menu - Mohrenkpofs: desert with chocolate covering and a delicious light fondant filling Negative - service: slow and inefficient. We had to asked several time to receive our orders. In general and after several visits I came to the conclusion that the staff is not concentrated enough and sometimes seems... More

During our first night in Zurich, we and another couple stumbled upon the Cafe Mohrenkopf along the busy pedestrian street. Although it had not been on our list of places to eat I compiled from the guidebooks and Trip Adviser, this small Swiss bistro proved to be one of the best choices we made during our stay in Switzerland. Although... More

My husband and I ate lunch here while walking to Grossmunster cathedral. The restaurant is very close to all the downtown attractions including the cathedral. The street on which this is located - Niederdorfstarsse - is a food street with loads of restaurant options. We had soup and salad and enjoyed the food. It was reasonably priced (by Swiss standards:))... More

We happened upon this restaurant by chance, chose it because it looked nice and then had a look at the menu and decided to go in. We arrived around 6pm and it was pretty quiet, but by 7pm the place was abuzz with happy customers and friendly staff adding to the great atmosphere. I chose the large herb salad which... More

Location is downtown right on the main shopping street and convenient to everything in "old town"; Great "Rosti" and service; our waiter was the best; he was raise in North Carolina and Zurich. The prices were not extremely expensive and we highly recommend them.

I chose the set lunch menu which had a vegetarian option as well. My pumpkin quiche was freshly made and quite delicious...I ordered it because I had never had one before. It came with a large fresh salad. It included a small bowl of cream of broccoli soup to start...rich in flavour (served with 3 slices of fresh light rye... More

We ate at this restaurant after a walking tour out in the cold and wet city of Zurich, and it was warm and cosy inside with a great atmosphere. The service was great and the food was some of the best we had on our month long trip. Also, as far as Zurich prices go, it wasn't bad value either.

Situated in the old town, we found this restaurant by chance. We enjoyed our dinner so much the first night that we came back the following night. Both nights the restaurant was absolutely packed with locals and tourists as the food is so tasty and reasonably priced for Switzerland. On the first night we ate chicken schnitzels which were smothered... More

Wonderful restaurant in the old part of the city. Staff is very friendly and the food is always fresh and very delicious! Also like the fact that they use local products in their seasonal dishes. Definitely worth a visit while your stay in Zürich!
