Lovely evening outdoors

We were a big table on a hot evening and sat in the courtyard with a glimpse of Lake Zurich...delightful! The drinks were served swiftly and cold and dinner came perfectly cooked! The veal paillard might have been a tad more tender, but the veggies it came with were delicious! A great evening!

We enjoyed a delightful dinner al fresco at the Blaue Ente in Zurich Tiefenbrunnen, in the trendy old flour mill which has been redeveloped into an attractive location for restaurants, offices, gym and a museum. The food was excellent, the wine list has some specially selected wines. The service was cordial and attentive. Make sure to try the specials and... More

Blaur was one of the first modern fine dining venues in Zurich. The last years were difficult, as management changed a couple of times. Nico Maeder's crew run the place, and it is one of my favorite spots again. Food is great, traditional dishes with a twist. Great, attentive service. Location offers inside and outside dining. Bat is lively. Cannot... More

The restaurant is very elegant and most guests were business people and calm, middle-aged couples. The location is beautiful - chic and modern. Be prepared to chose from an extensive wine list. We decided to have different, wonderful starters: the goat cheese is nicely balanced with honey, the artichoke is a lot of work but absolutely worth it, the salads... More

Best Wiener Schnitzel in Zurich, by far. The manager also recommended an excellent wine to us from Tuscany.

We celebrated a birthday bash at the venue. To start with - in the bar which is right beside the restaurant you can still smoke! This might be off putting for some people but you can also stay outside and enjoy your drink before heading to the restaurant. They offer a good variety of dishes - food is good, but... More

The restaurant has very old fashion with modern touch. It is quite well connected from the Zurich main station so called the Zürich HB. Also it seems to be well organized for business/small group deal. In short, it is difficult to say something about the food, to me it was just average (it was a business party) which mostly doesn't... More

The restaurant situated in an old industrial mill has always had one of the most interesting settings in Zurich (the other one being La Salle ) but the food was "Swiss comfort", well executed but boring, with indifferent service. Now, lead by Christian, himself from Vienna and under management by the same restaurateur who has brought us Atelier and Baerengasse,... More

After its renovation, the Blaue Ente in back stronger than ever in Zurich. Very friendly and attentive staff, spacious sitting in a historical setting (Mühle Tiefenbrunnen) and delicious food are a winning combination. It starts with the small detail of serving a fresh small loaf of bread to be cut by yourself, and then feel free to select from their... More

AMAZING. Everything was amazing about this restaurant. From the modern yet rustic decor, to the ambiance, to the service, to the food, everything was fantastic. We decided to go with the Tapas and we had the Zurich egg, char, carpaccio, veal meatballs. I would have ordered two Zurich eggs if I had known how awesome it was. Such a blend... More
