Delicious food with the best ingredients. You can tell that the restaurant prides itself of the fare it serves. The staff are friendly and attentive. Extensive wine list. The menu was 'limited' but I would rather pick a restaurant who is sure about their quality rather than an extensive food menu where everything is average. Gorgeous interiors and warm and... More

Visited the Kindli during a business trip together with a local business colleague. The decor is traditional with dark mahogany wood paneling, Venetian glass mirrors, and crisp white tablecloth tables with leather seats and booths. Swiss bankers drop in with their colleagues at the days' end. We were there for the wonderful seasonal food, typically Swiss but with some regional... More

I had not made reservations but the waiter was polite and efficient in finding a nice table for us. The service was very good: attentive to details, discreet, present when needed and flexible to accommodate our wishes. The food was very good - classic fare with good quality ingredients and cooked to perfection. I liked the seasonal dishes on the... More

I am an American, and have lived in Zurich for the past 18 months. I have not had great luck with restaurants here...but Kindli is a wonderful exception. Had a delicious meal here with a friend and enjoyed every moment. Attentive, but not overbearing service. English language menu is available, with terrific Continental food, and some Swiss specialities. Even the... More

Excellent dinner from this cozy restaurant which is strategically located in the old town of Zurich. Lve the scallop risotto which is almost finger licking good. Excellent choices of wines and perfect service made the dinner memorable. Bill can pill up fast but what else do you expect from Zurich?

We went with a large group of people to the restaurant and I followed the advice I read before here on Tripadvisor. The food was really good. A very nice mix of beef, chicken and chicken dishes on the menu. It shows also a variety of cuisines like Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Spain etc. Although the food was absolutely top class,... More

Located in the old town of Zurich, the Kindli shines with hospitality and well-prepared dishes in a cozy atmosphere. Service was very friendly and attentive, with a good sense of humour. The courses were served quickly and food quality was excellent. Prices are high, but in the range that one would expect in this area of Zurich. Reservation is mandatory;... More

We visited Kindli for dinner just before Christmas. Booking was essential and there were two or three large groups (very well behaved!) that added to the nice buzz of conversation. The restaurant is in the old town, on the ground floor in a large traditional room, nicely lit and comfortable. We really enjoyed our meal and an excellent bottle of... More
