Seated outdoors with sunny weather always helps but the service was excellent and the food of high quality. Although in the middle of the tourist area we never felt that is was a restaurant spoiled by tourism.

The food was delicious! 2 of us had fish of the day (salmon) with spinach and rice which was very good. one person ordered their veal special which he really liked as well. prices were very reasonable for the quality of food especially in Zurich. service was friendly and efficient. Will definitely go back.

My boyfriend and I ate lunch at Kindli while spending the day in Zurich. The white umbrellas and cobbled streets make you feel like you are living in a postcard. It is so beautiful and the food is delicious. I had the truffle rissotto and my boyfriend had the grilled fish. We shared a bottle of Prosecco. Our waiter was... More

Wonderful Rock Lobster--as good as it gets. Terrific service. A really memorable restaurant. We would always return to Kindli when in Zurich. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for and not out of line for Zurich.

We dined here the Easter Saturday, we had an excellent dinner, with top quality food and a professional service with a friendly touch. The location is warm and traditional but not "heavy", the menu mix up tradition and creative cuisine.

Family event. Party of 7. If one likes Swiss Cuisine this is the place to go to. My godson found the Zürich Geschnetzeltes (chopped veal) with Rösti the best he ever had the pleasure to taste and my partner and I found the chopped veal liver, also with Rösti, simply excellent. The ambience is pleasantly quiet, the service a-tentative. The... More

We had lunch here and the food was plentiful and delicious. The service was great. My husband and I wanted to split an appetizer and so thought about ordering the full size. The waiter said we could order appetizer size and if it was not enough, he would bump us to full size. Food was great and they did not... More

More than positive memories of previous visits last year proved some operators know how to maintain standards when we returned again to re-discover this refined & elegantly-appointed dining room in Central Zurich. The blessing of air-conditioning in a city virtually bereft of this internationally-basic amenity also sets this operation this apart from very many of its competitors, nearby. Being remembered...
