Very good address

We stopped there with my wife, we were looking for a place to have lunch. it was a marvelous ! The view to the cooks, and the deco are worth to pass and eat there. It's something unique in Zurich. The staff seems a bit young and needs to get in the routine. But there were very friendly. My wife... read more

My wife and I visited the Widder's AuGust restaurant on November 17, just shortly after it had opened. It was an appalling example of how not to open a new restaurant, and a striking example of the saying "You only get one opportunity to make a first impression". The location is great, the concept innovative and the room is nicely... More

they call it fine dining but it is not up to par compared to what i am used to. perhaps they should avoid calling it a fine dining experience. the prices are indeed in what you would call fine dining range but that's about all. I was a bit disappointed in the menu. I had the foie gras and the... More

Our international association celebrated Chrismas in style at the Widder hotel this year. We were over 100 participants. The venue was elegant, the service very attentive and the menu was both original and festive. The food and wine were true to tradition: definitely lived up to the promise...

The very chic and posh Widder bar is famous in the city and has one of the best whisky selection in Zurich. The service is perfect and the drinks word famous.

Enjoyed a great after dinner drink in the jazz bar and was impressed with the 2000+ bottles of various alcoholic beverages and the Whiskey selection! The staff was wonderful. Great ambiance.

Service was friendly if somewhat by the numbers and the room is quaint old... More

The fish sashimi with eggplant caviar was a great start followed by grilled fish with noodels. Each plate a varaiety of selected ingredients well combined and prepared with a fine sense of taste. The best was the host Th. Schärer- a very elegant man with great class and a huge knowledge of the wines and the combination with the right... More

The setting is elegance, menu is European cuisine with good wine selection. Service is attentive and functional. 2-course dinner and shared dessert with a glass of average wine was CHF135. Breads are freshly baked and crispy, but not outstanding. Presentation of dishes were traditional and conservative, meat and sauce taste ordinary and lacked aroma. Perhaps it needs modernisation and creativity... More
