Suggested by concierge at our hotel. Beautiful casually elegant ambiance. Service very attentive. Meal was excellent - veal done in Zurich style was superb. Nice wine list. Pricing consistent with upper scale Swiss restaurants. Definite must visit on a Zurich trip.

The restaurant has a great atmosphere with elegant decor and first class service. The food was cook to taste good, not just to look good, with decent portions. It was quite expensive but in the context of Zurich not so bad, at around 40 chf for a main course.

This charming restaurant is part of a quaint hotel of 20 odd rooms in the old town of Zurich. The service was excellent, calf's liver perfectly cooked, the roosti spot on in crispiness. The restaurant was pleasantly full. An excellent experience at a restaurant attentively and proudly run and which takes good care of its patrons.

We were travel-weary on a Monday evening, but dinner at the Kindli lifted spirits and revived us. The welcome was warm, and our server was attentive, with fine command of English and deep knowledge of the menu and wine list. I could not resist my favorite veal Zürich style, with rösti potatoes, and it did not disappoint. The veal was... More

A memorable anniversary lunch. We had a quiet round table at the back of the restaurant. The food was great, service and ambiance all one could have wished for. Luca was very helpful with the wine and attentive to all our needs. We will certainly come again.

... a good recipe for a disaster. And Kindli got it all right. 5* personalised service. Good timing between the dishes. Fantastic cuisine (we had three courses for 6 people and every single dish was DELICIOUS) We will be back, Kindli. Thanks a million.

It is usually very busy so prepared to be with plenty co-dinners, but the reasons are obvious. Food quality and service are excellent. Great selection of wines is a plus. Atmosphere also very nice (except for the cram). The bill is still within reason for Zurich, so all in all one to have on your list.

I took my dad here as his Christmas present. Food and especially the wine was great as was the service! Def. a great place to go in Zurich! And the best was that my dad remembered the place from his younger years.

Visiting again Kindli is satisfaction guaranteed. On a Friday night Kindli is full, people come in asking for a table to be told reservations are needed, waiters move quickly from one table to another, but you feel well, atentive waiters take care of you and you know your food will be perfect. So perfect that one of our party did... More
