Great place, atmosphere and food. The price is acceptable for a place like Zurich. I really enjoyed the food and will certainly repeat.

Where once was the Tapas Bar is now (temporarily?) to find the Brasserie Lipp. The food was too expensive except for the house specialty (Entrecote Cafe de Paris). For example, a really small green salad with sunflower seeds (and brown spots) costs 10 CHF. However, the Entrecote was fried as desired (bleu) and the fries were crispy. We had an... More

Brasserie Lipp has great seafood. I love their fish soup, their oysters, and all their fish dishes. Their non-food options also look to be good, although I never let myself order those meals, The wine list does a great job of giving you good pairings to the food. It's just the invoice that comes at the end which causes me... More

The food was very good as was the service. Very interesting and high standard. A bit pricey though but worth it once in a while.

The seafood platter is so good and so full for we two girls. The price is absolutely a good deal to have seafood in Zurich at this good quality. The oysters and mussels are one of the best I ever had. The prawns taste so fresh. I will definitely visit this restaurant if I am going to Zurich again.

Brasserie Lipp has great service. Their food is also great. One of the things I liked about it was how they have so many vegetables because in Zurich it can be hard to find vegetables.

Lipp is a very upmarket Brasserie, probably more suited to merchant bankers with corporate credit cards the tourists. Service was very poor, but as one would hope for the price food was better then average.
