The romantic atmosphere produced within the confines of this recreated underground King's Cave is only topped by the wonderful King's Cut, which is sliced for you and placed on your table atop a personal flame to keep the delicious steak warm throughout the entire meal.

We had Sirloin steak with fresh salad and chicken breast with vegetables. Even though you have to pay quite a lot, it is totally worth it! The staff is very friendly and attentive. If you are in Zurich you should visit the King's Cave Restaurant. If you have a sweet tooth try their desserts! So yumm!

Ate here on night one of three in Zurich. Stayed at the central plaza hotel which is above this restaurant. Service was a little slow and the food was very very expensive (but I guess it's zurich so can't complain much). When the food came out it was tasty however a little oily. We used a 20% off voucher which... More

My sister when visiting Zurich loved going to the Kings Cave, and we went often, but we had not been there to be honest in a few years, and it has changed - not the decor - but the prices and service. It's totally not worth the price. Years ago, you got your lovely bread and lovely sauces, then your... More

Struggled to find decent food at a reasonable price in Zurich. This bar had high quality food at very reasonable prices in a central location. Good atmosphere and the staff were all helpful and friendly.

We went to Kings Cave for a business dinner. The beef and fries were OK value for price. However the service was quite bad. Almost all servings were delivered to the wrong person, we had numerous different waiters that all just talked Swiss to us even though we let them know we were English. Waiters were clumsy and knocked over... More
