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

Another hidden germ in the Zurich old town next to the Lindenhofplatz. I have eaten there many times over the last 10 years and have never been disappointed one single time. It does not matter if it was for lunch or dinner, the food was always cooked to perfection. For wine lovers there is his 100 pages wine bible which... More

We went for a late lunch and each had a main course and dessert. Most of the main courses were different kinds of steaks and they were cooked exactly like we asked with excellent side dishes. The potato pancake was especially nice. They changed the dishes to suit our allergies without any hassle and the atmosphere was warm and cozy.... More
