A great restaurant

My wife and I ate here in early July. Kindli is in the hotel Kindli in Old Town. The restaurant is upscale, with table cloths in a dark-wood paneled dining area. The service was terrific and professional. We had seafood specials, and they were superb. Kindli had an old-world atmosphere to it... read more

We were in luck that an owner of Lindenhofkeller recommended Kindli restaurant. First of all, the place has an air conditioner- hard to find in Zurich, and with 90 degrees weather and walking all day long it was very important to us. The food was delicious. The best gaspacho soup I've ever had. Veal "Zurich style" is delicious. My husband... More

It was our last night in Zurich and my wife and I were interested in high quality genuine Swiss cuisine. We booked a reservation at Kindli and were not disappointed. Superb fresh ingredients artfully prepared. The service was attentive and impeccable. Without our having requested it, the staff had booked us for an outdoor table on a lovely summer evening...

Great place, many attentive servers, air conditioned and comfortable ambiance. We both had the veal escalope in a delicate sauce with fine noodles. We would both order it again! A wonderful menu selection.

Located on the lower floor of the hotel, which is situated right by Lindenhof park. It has a pretty classic, formal, elegant ambiance. We went for dinner and tried the risotto with white asparagus and the Swiss beef dish. Both were very good, and the portions were a good size. The risotto dish was particularly good, and probably the best... More

I booked a table for four people, as I was told that the restaurant proposing specialties from Zurich, to my surprise I found only international dishes. Being celiac I asked about the gluten-free bread and the waiter brought him saying it was gluten free, strangely that bread was served to all customers of the restaurant so I asked again if... More

Expensive and not blown away but really good. The truffle risotto was good but not amazing. The veal was incredible though and might have been the best I have ever had. Noodles were good as well.

My wife and I whilst visiting Zurich met up at the Kindli with two old UK friends who now live there. The restaurant does not have fine views of the river like some others nearby but it is located in a quaint back street and was very near to the Hotel Storchen where we were staying. The menu features several... More

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 black truffles was wonderful. The noodles with black truffle still very tasty, but the... 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
