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

Probably the best Béarnaise sauce I have had for many years. Pricey for what it is, but this is Zurich.

I went here last night with friends for dinner and we ended up here by coincidence without a reservation. They had a table for us and we were seated right away. The ambiance is very nice, fairly quiet so good for private conversations without obtrusive music or noise from other guests bothering you. A 'cave' is a bit of an... More

We sat outside on the busy street corner but wanted to take in the city. If you're looking for a quieter dining experience you can simply eat inside.

It was expensive but Zurich itself was expensive so very comparable. The atmosphere and service was great!

We had a business dinner here this week and were looking for a high end steakhouse - this kept coming up on different searches and I figured we would try it. The description of a cave-like atmosphere that offered "castle vaults" and royal dining experience sounded interesting. I'm not sure if you've been to Disney World lately but the decor... More

This was our first trip to Zurich and the restaurant was recommended by the front desk staff. It was located down from our hotel. We were met with a very cozy atmosphere, as it is cave-like. The service was great, but the food was absolutely AMAZING (I still feel this is not a good enough description) we both ordered steak... More

This 'underground' restaurant is decorated very tastefully and makes use of the ancient arched ceilings in these vault-like rooms. The food is excellent and the service very helpful and observant. That the prices are considerably higher than the were when I was there 4-5 times a year some 7 years back is o.k. with me as everything else increased in... More

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!
