Good Atmosphere

My husband and I had dinner at King's Cave. We went on a Monday evening, with reservations, but it wasn't too crowded. The atmosphere was very romantic and the service was good. My fish was very fresh and my husband said his steak was excellent.

My wife and I found this gem by accident on our way to the Marriott. It is downstairs and is quite upscale. The food was the best we had in Zurich, and the service was superb. The name belies its upscale nature. The wine was great. It's atmospheric which was a nice added touch. You won't be disappointed.

If you love a great steak, you'll love King's Cave. The Donald Russell Steak with bearnaise sauce was a culinary delight. A steak cooked to perfection with the best tasting bearnaise sauce I have had in some time. The atmosphere is very romantic and interesting. It gave my wife and I plenty to talk about during our pleasant dining experience.

We were very weary at first , as we thought it was over priced for what we had read. The vegetables and white asparagus were great ,along with the steak and chicken dishes.

Swiss beef was tasty, bass with jumbo shrimps also good. For us portions were a bit to much (steak 200 g, fish even more) and therefore we could not take apetizer or dessert. That was a pity because menu looked really good. We had great table with King's and Queen's chairs. Only best for Queen of My Heart when celebrating... More

We've been to Zurich many times and have been eating at numerous places. Although this is our first time we've been left with the impression that they do not have a great customer care. After being seated in our place we waited for about 30 minutes till the waiter took our order although we've hurried them so many times. The... More

I was in Zurich for 3 nights with my sister on business. We ate dinner at this restaurant for all 3 nights. The Steak, Baked Potato, Fish and Chicken were all fantastic! The staff were extremely friendly and paid great attention to detail. It is a little bit pricey here but I found all of Zurich to be expensive, so... More
