This is the place where my father visited a restaurant for the first time in his life in 1943 - I was there the first time in 1969 and my son in 2005. Our family visits this place at least once a week through the whole year for as long as I could and will be able to afford it.... More

Although the menu has a good selection of items, I have been to Emilio's at least 6 times and have always ordered the chicken. It is excellent and I will continue to order it every time I go to Emilio's!! The only negative is the price of the house wine. Bottles of wine are priced normally for Zurich but the... More

A longstanding customer of Emilio invited me for lunch. For the 1/2 chicken portion that he wanted, with starter and garnish and dessert you need to be two persons. So I joint him. I would call it the most expensive french fries I ever had, as a split baby chicken, while very well done in every respect , is just... More

I am addicted to Emilio. The roasted chicken served in four courses is excellent. Indeed it serves my craving for comfort food. I have been many times and this restaurant is a fixture on my list

We went to Emilio's on a Saturday evening in December. There were 6 of us. Overall, it was a poor restaurant experience. First of all, it is really expensive. Since when does half of a tiny chicken cost 50 Swiss Francs? The waitress was almost rude to us and someone in our party had a hair in their salad. The... More

It's no wonder that the people in the small and very cozy restaurant have almost exclusively ordered the chicken: it's the restaurant's specialty and quite frankly the best chicken I have ever tasted! There is absolutely nothing I have to complain about not unlike the other many guests that seemed to have enjoyed their food just as much as me... More
