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.

We had dinner there during our last stay in Zurich The food was great, maybe the service was a bit slow, but when the food was ready we did not mind the waiting. We spend some time at the roof top in Jules verne panoramic bar quite a nice view to the city

We spent one night in Zürich and at random had dinner at Brasserie Lipp since it was close to our hotel. It was a disappointing meal. Not everything on the menu was available and the dessert, a mille feuille, was at least one day old. The waitress was friendly but especially the wine orders were served very slowly. Last but...

My husband and I happened on Brasserie Lipp in Zurich while wandering the city. We both had steak and frites but it was really, really good. The presentation was first rate. they brought each of us small burners to the table and placed each meal on it to keep warm. You then serve yourself. The steak was very tender and... More

Went to Brasserie Lipp for lunch. It wasn't too busy, about 1/3 or less of the tables were taken. Still, our waiter was slow to notice our needs and proceeded to eventually dissapear altogether! At the end we were trying to flag down another waiter which was hard in itself (apparently all waiters kept their eyes on their "area" only).... More

Seconds later he brought a glass of white and the water. He said it was my mistake but changed it to red. The... More

Not a bad restaurant but not a great one either. It was ok, no huge complaints but why bother to go when there are so many fantastic restaurants in Zurich?

If you love fresh fish, etc. you have to go to Lipp. It's probably the best place for seafood in Zurich. Lovely place with a great French touch, attentive service and good atmosphere. A real brasserie. One of my favorites in Zurich.
