Description: With its aura of La Belle Epoque, the Lipp is a cult site for French brasserie style cuisine. You can find it in the heart of Zurich. The restaurant can accommodate 200 people indoors and 40 people outdoors. Here diners can sample fresh cuisine and enjoy the Parisian ambiance. The standard menu offers a large selection of French dishes such as oven-roasted lamb steak with porto jus, tagliatelle and ratatouille. You can also order the dishes as takeaways – including the opened and ice-cooled oysters. French culture resonates on the wine list too. The Panorama Bar adjoining the restaurant is a particular highlight. Overlooking the rooftops of the city, it is the perfect place to come for lunch, an aperitif or a glass of wine from anywhere in the world.

Had lunch here and were not disappointed. Typical French Brasserie ambience. Attentive and efficient staff. Had the Entrecote with a dak beer and were not disappointed. Well cooked and well presented food. Would recommend for lunch as there is also a lunch time menu.

The french have the perfect word for it: incontournable. The lipp is a myst in the Zurich food scene. Admittedly more because of its flair than its cuisine. The latter could do with a bit more love and care. Stick to the classics - oysters, choucroute and the like, and enjoy the ever so busy atmosphere. Very mixed crowd, everybody... More

Very nice atmosphere for a special occasion. Staff makes everyone very comfortable and multilingual. Food was excellent, sampler starter plate gave about 10 different small bites. Steaks were excellent bad seafood very good as well. Reservations highly recommended, we had them, and I doubt too many guests were served who didn't, since it was full on week night. It is... More

I ordered the game dinner as my first dinner in Zurich. If you do this, come hungry and without jet lag. It was a very good meal consisting of 3 types of wild game, but it was way too much to eat when I was without the stamina to see it through.

I had lunch alone. It is not cheap but the quality and service is excellent. You have also a business menu choice for a very convenient price. I will be back.

We walked straight in from the street just looking for a meal, and boy were we in for a nice surprise. The ambient atmosphere coupled with an almost vintage style, very spacious, good seating and just a very lovely atmosphere. And the waiters? They are rare in the sense, that they know what they are doing. They are not constantly... More

Brasserie Lipp is a Zurich classic and never disappoints. It is a proper brasserie so there is no huge innovation in the menu, although the quality of the food served is always consistently good. We had oysters and white wine as a mid afternoon decadent snack... Just amazing

if you're looking for a typical trendy "French" brasserie, with great fish plates and lovely wines at (for Switzerland) decent prices, this is the place to be ! Different tartare starters on the menu card and the risotto is outstanding. Great servce, centrally located in the old part of Zurich, only 400m walking from the big Zurich HB train station.

If you crave seafood and/or real French cuisinie, Brasserie Lipp is THE place to go to in Zurich. The service is friendly and very quick, there is a really large choice on the menu (which includes things such as Sauerkraut / choucroute and "la chasse" in the fall), and the wine list is excellent as well.

We were in Zurich for three nights and our dinner at Brasserie Lipp was the best we had. The food was very good, as was the atmosphere and the service. Unlike the other places we ate we were not rushed. Our waiter took his time and was very attentive. We very much enjoyed our dinner at Brasserie Lipp. We would... More
