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.

A lovely place in central Zurich

I'm not a fan of the Zurich food scene (very expensive and mediocre food if I will try to generalize). But since I have to visit there a few times a year for work I'm trying to find the sane places. One of these is Brasserie Lipp. Very nice French classics with sane prices (well not everything... read more

The place in itself deserves at least one visit. It's by far the best of the Brasseries Lipp around the world due to the atmosphere and elegance. This feeling was enhanced in great part due to the excellent Mr.Nizar, one of the best waiters that we've seen even after having had lunch and dinners in the six continents. Marcos and... More

Service was perfect, excellent food. My friend had fresh oysters and scrumptious shrimp, I had a delightful Tafelspitz (boiled beef Vienna style) with marrow and boiled vegetables. A salad and some smoked salmon to start. The restaurant offers seafood in all variations, moules, plates full of fresh and delightful oysters, crab, shrimp. Excellent.

My husband and I are regulars at the Brasserie Lipp and at the Jules Verne panorama bar (in the tower of the city's observatory), not least because of their terrific location, smack in the center of Zurich. Although the Brasserie Lipp used have better service and the food is quite expensive for what you get - except for their business... More

I have been here several time for lunch and for dinner. Styled on a classic Parisienne bistro but a whole lot more expensive! If we have visitors on expenses we go there and you can have a good meal but there are many other places I would spend that money!

We went in at new years eve rather late, when every other restaurant in the area was closing or not serving food anymore... Service was very attentive and kind, and the atmosphere was really charming...typical old school Parisian Brasserie style... My partner had a perfectly oven- cooked pikeperch filet (best fresh water fish imo) with roasted veggies (potatoes, courgettes, eggplants,... More

Went out for lunch with family. The Brassiere offers a rich menu with sea food, various salads, classical meat and vegetarian dishes, and even some simple sausage menus. The food was good and portions were of decent size to feed a hungry stomach. The starter and the main course were served at the same time for the whole table. The... More

Booked this Restaurant after recommendation from our hotel and researching Trip Adviser for a fish restaurant in central Zurich open on Sundays. This brasserie is so French for all the best reasons it feels like you have stepped from Switzerland to Paris. The shellfish platters with fresh lobster, crab, oysters,mussels etc etc are wonderful, served by very helpful staff. Meat... More
