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

Reservations honored. Staff were attentive and did not rush your meal. Charming ambience, good presentation and fine authentic Swiss cuisine.

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...

The food at Kindli was average at best. Our waiter rushed us from the moment that we were seated until the grand finale when he leaned over my husband's shoulder to explain to him that even in Zurich, tips of 10% are most welcome. He actually stood there and waited to see if and how much he was getting. How... More

We live in Zürich and have accidently discovered Kindli! Although for my taste the food should be just a bit nicer presented on a plate sometime, it is tasty, from fish to steak, the staff very friendly and service wise top! Plus, one of the friendliest places if you own a dog - water balls, blankets, cookies!!!! Summer seating outside... More

We shared a business lunch and all opted for a mix of seasonal and traditional dishes. The kitchen was quite quick, food was delicious, the produce was fresh and of high quality. So, if you want to try some asparagus dishes, or a traditional kidney dish, the Kindli is a great choice. The person serving us was somewhat new to... More
