BEST RESTAURANT IN ZURICH

We ate at the Lindenhofkeller at least the 5th time now. The owner and chef-cook René and his beautiful wife are doing a fantastic job. In a very nice location you can enjoy a perfect evening. The portions are not to big and not to smal, the wine selection is outstanding and the service staff is... read more

Being able to dine al fresco in the courtyard on a beautiful day enhanced what was already a high quality offering. Service was friendly and prompt but not obtrusive. Started with fresh flavourful appetiser, followed by veal loin, which when enhanced by fleur de sel, was excellent. Delightful regional wine. Delicious dessert and coffee rounded off a relaxing meal.

Zurich is a city where one is spoilt for choice as far as restaurants go. But Lindenhofkeller is one of the very best, no doubt. Especially recommended are the house specialty, slowly baked veal a low temperature, as well as the bison steak. The wine menu is simply outstanding and the genial owner (René Hofer) will be more than happy... More

great meal for 6 of us traveling on business - watermelon gazpacho, truffled gnocchi, rack of veal - fabulous wine list. The chef was also our server - how he had time to be so attentive I've no idea!

I just found this restaurant walking on a cold night through old Zurich. The place is nice, much larger than the entrance would suggst. I had a soupo and a main plate with two glases of wine and a bottle of water (that cost nearly the same as the wine). Food was tasty, service was not very fluent, I had... More

Visited here recently for dinner. The service was excellent and the chef/owner spent more time working the tables than in the kitchen Perhaps this was why the food rather disappointed. It wasn't bad, in fact the lobster dish was very good, but just didn't quite meet the high expectations we had on booking In particular the potatoes served with the... More

Beautiful setting, accompanied by great service and amazing food. A place where you are looked after and made to feel extremely welcome. One of the best evenings in Zurich to date!
