Cool setting, ok food, service could be better

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... read more

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

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

We've been meaning to visit Blaue Ente for a couple of years now, and finally took the chance this week. What a pleasure: romantic outdoor seating; fantastic service (which any locals will tell you is pretty unusual for Zurich); and lovely food (we had the roast beef, and saucisson, as the mains; salads to start). We weren't sure what we'd... More

The location and ambiance are still great. The new Team lead by local gastronomy hero N.M. is brilliantly service-minded. The kitchen is very good. Tasty, nice size portions, surprising combinations. The bases are there to become a Zürich (kitchen) hot spot soon again.

After an absence of several years due to a disappointing dinner, we returned back to the place which physically has not been changed, however the kitchen and the staff were greatly improved. The choice of food was well balanced; much to my satisfaction it showed some "grand mother's" dishes and not the standard run of the mill. Wine list is... More
