Great place for very hungry people

Fantastic steaks and also recommend the prawns - or both together yum! Yum. It can get very warm as its a cellar and no windows.

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.

Beautiful heritage restaurant with 130 years and unique decoration is definitely a nice place to dine around with your hubby. Review a menu and order glass of red wine with delicious veal medium rare, chicken Breast with herbs butter cream, sip with Pinot Grigio. Perfect good. Veal served in small chafing dish, look nice but a bit big portion, not... More

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

All though we knew the prices in switzerland are burning to the sky yet it was quiet payable and the service was brilliant. Nice meat,... More

This place is not a brainer at all. Right in the middle of almost everything and 2 minutes walk away from the Hauptbahnhof [main Zurich train station]. The food is very good and the service is excellent. There is also live piano music and signing. Very nice and relaxing! Will go again!

We wandered downstairs in the evening to enjoy our meal, were sat down and given menus. When the waiter came back, I mentioned that we had this Smart Box package -- so our menus were whisked away and we were given other, more abbreviated ones, but the choice was still sufficient. We ate a lovely salad, passed on to a... More

So you're near Zurich Main Station (aka Zurich HB) and looking for a good place to meet people for a drink. Try the bar and restaurant in the Hotel Central. There is live music, a good selection of cocktails, for Switzerland pretty good service, and space. It's not over crowded and it feels comfortable. The bonus is that you're central... More
