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

Kindli is a traditional restaurant in a beautiful house in the middle of Zurich old town. The service is friendly and the food is good but not exceptional. The portion of jamon Iberico was generous, the dorade fish on caper sauce not impressive but still ok. The place is popular, make sure to have a reservation. The do not have... More

It is very difficult to find a restaurant in Zurich in December. All good restaurants are full with company groups celebrating a Christmas dinner. So we had to find a restaurant to eat without reservation and we ended up at the last free table of Kindli. It is really excellent and the waiters try to make your stay as pleasant... More

My family visited this excellent restaurant on a Saturday evening. From first to last the service was really excellent. All of us had 3 courses and we all thought they were excellent. One of my kids is quite fussy but she liked everything she ordered. There was a "seasonal" menu which I tried: scallop risotto was superb as was the... More
