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.

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.

So I like to come here because of the Brasserei Atmosphere and because I love Oysters and there is not that many places in Zurich offering them.... but this place is really overrated. Service is good to poor depending on the waiter you get. Twice they lost my reservation and treated me like I was an unworthy person for they... More

Brasserie Lipp is always a great experience. French "brasserie" style at it's best. The food is always excellent and you can reserve online!

If you want to feel like you are having dinner in Paris - that is the place to go, from oysters to soupe de poissons, from steak tartare to pot au feu it is all there.

Brasserie Lipp is a nice French restaurant with excellent seafood dishes. It is not the typical Swiss Restaurant but the food is very good. The moules et frittes were excellent, the salad was short on dressing. Wine list is good.

I had one night in Zurich and was visiting a friend there, he chose Brasserie Lipp and the food was excellent. It has an extensive seafood menu, I had the sea bass served over a vegetable ratatouille and it was fantastic. The service could have been a bit better, but it was a busy Friday night. It's decorated as a... More

The meat slices were clean cut and plentiful with no fat or grizzle. The lentil soup was tasty. ideal for a quick lunch on a busy Friday and for what we ate, good value depending on... More

The quaint decor certainly outshines it's larger more boistrous sister restaurant in Geneva by a country mile. The food is what you'd expect - good oysters entrecote etc. Worth a return visit.
