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

Numerous times I have had the most excellent dinner with family and friends and for special occasions at Kings. Sadly, the last couple of times we went it has been extremely poor service.

We went here just because we were staying at the hotel. The food was very good and the piano music from the bar upstairs was very good. The service was also very good.

Went there for a weekend dinner on our trip to Zurich - King's cave was hit and miss - an average dining experience/value for the price. Pluses included a nice, beautifully decorated interior, interesting pictures, candles and live piano music (from upstairs) that made for a nice and romantic evening. Service was the European standard, I thought slightly above, spouse... More

The inside of the restaurant is well decorated and has a good ambiance for a business or personal meal. The service was excellent. They had... More

The staff did their utmost to get us a table, it was a wait, but well worth it. The restaurant served my favorite dish - fresh dover sole! We did notice that the menu was varied. The prices are high but if they serve your favorite meal who cares!

The restaurant is conveniently located in walking distance from the main train station in the Hotel Central. Despite being a restaurant with no windows because it is in a sub-level floor the King's Cave is very cozy. They offer a variety of steaks. I have eaten there several times and the meat is always very good. They also offer a... More
