Seasonal, nice traditional + new

We really enjoyed this restaurant. It's a comfortable, classic interior (we weren't up for outside as a) it occasionally has traffic--only periodically and b) it was raining. OK, mostly b.) They have very seasonal food--asparagus and truffles at this time of year. Perfect. The risotto with... read more

After reading the reviews, my colleague and I decided to have dinner here. Although the ambiance and service were excellent, the food was not. Possibly, because the translation on the menu is incorrect, the veal cutlet that was ordered was actually a veal chop. It was okay but it wasn’t what she was expecting. I ordered the white asparagus risotto,... More

Kindli is truly an amazing dining experience. We were staying quite a way away a from the restaurant, but made the trek over. It was so worth it! The staff was kind and attentive. We were thrilled with the service and the help our waiter provided to us. You will love this restaurant!

Thoroughly enjoyed my dinner. I had veal Zurich Style. My husband had pasta in some creamy sauce which was equally good. We opted not to have starters. We wanted to some dessert but were so full with the mains. I will definitely go again!!

We just randomly read the review in tripadvisor and went in for our dinner. It turned out to be the best dinner during our hineymoon trip in Europe. Everything here was just perfect - super delicious food, excellent service, nice traditional decoration and cosy ambience. We went in without any reservation and it was very packed.

This is my new favorite restaurant in Zürich. It's perfect in every respect, a great combination of traditional and contemporary. The house itself is very beautiful and located in the very centre of old town, between the Bahnhofstrasse snd the Limmat river. Inside it is decorated with wooden panels and black and white pictures of Swiss mountainsides. The menu looks... More

Without reservation, I think we were lucky to get a table for two during lunch hours as it turned out quite full. We seemed to be the only foreign visitors there so it must be a popular venue among the locals. It was also was our first meal in Switzerland and totally impressed with the service and food quality, well,... More
