We sat outside and it was crowdy. No charm I must say. Food is best to be rated average. Good and bright wine selection. Far to overpriced. Service except for the one man himself was below average. All in all nothing special and overpriced for average food. Zurich has better to offer.

You won't be disappointed with their service and quality of food. Price .. High but worth the money. Fine dining with casual smart dress code. I like it. In summer, they have a nice inner court yard. The chef is very friendly.

This restaurant is in a lovely location with a nice and comfortable interior. The staff including the chef were very polite and attentive. However, it seemed that people were seated by what language they spoke. Those who spoke English were in one room and those who spoke Swiss German or were local were in another room. The food was good... More

My wife and I were walking around old town in Zurich, when we happened to come across Lindenhofkeller. (Note the restaurant is located adjacent the tallest hill in Zurich on the west side of the river which affords spectacular views of the city, so I would suggest to combine sight-seeing with grabbing a meal at Lindenhofkeller). I recognized the restaurant... More

Ever-reliable delivery from Rene's kitchen is overseen at your table by the man himself..which is not only unusual...it's communication at the best level! He is supported by his partner & her team front-of-house who are as helpful as they are prompt. I took BJ foodie chums to this charming old-world Swiss dining room in Winter (make sure you are seated... More

A really impressive restaurant with an amazing wine list and fabulous food. The speciality of the house is well worth the trouble of ordering ahead. The waiter was very good making recommendations and showing real attention to detail. The room is traditional but comfortable. Very hard to fault.

Was there the first time last night, and everything was just perfect. Waiter was very friendly, translated all specials in English since we were there with friends who only spoke English. And this even though the menu was translated in English. Additionally to that the wine card is absolutely amazing. The restaurant is located just a few minutes walk from... More
