Friendly service and good food

The restaurant has a lovely old mill wheel in the centre, The menu is varied and there was an English translation, the service was good and efficient and we enjoyed our food and wine. Though we sat near a large table celebrating a birthday it was not noisy.

...the food let it and us down. The industrial chic decor still works and is inviting; and the service, from reception to paying was beyond any reproach, friendly, courteous and efficient. But the tomato soup from the lunch menu however good was luke warm and the day's special dessert, apple flan, was luke warm and simply not cooked enough so... More

Welcomed very friendly, the guiding through the evening by impeccable staff made the experience even better. The restaurant comes in great layout and cozy yet modern ambiance is present. I ordered the Wiener Schnitzel - a signature dish of the house, prepared by the Weiner Chef - and did not regret my choice: Best Schnitzel of my life! The service... More

My husband & I ate at this restaurant 17 years ago - yes, that's not a typo! We weren't impressed the first time. But enough time has passed for it to reinvent itself. And we are now huge fans! Already planning next dinner date with friends.

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
