A rare treat to stay in a family owned and run centrally located hotel / restaurant. May lack 24 x 7 luxury amenities but the excellent friendly service more than compensates; I would definitely stay again.

I took my wife here tonight for a nice and intimate dinner and we actually surprised how good it was. We eat regularly outside and the service is always a matter of opinion, but a lot of times very poor, unfriendly or unproffesional. If the service is good then the food might have something left to wish for. At Kindli,... More

Had one of our best lunches I can recall in a long time. Everything from the setting, atmosphere, outstanding service and, of course, the food was Swiss perfection. I had a spinach and hot chanterelle salad that was divine followed by the waiters suggestion of a half order of their veal with 'Rosti' potatoes. Very local dish done to perfection.... More

Seated outdoors with sunny weather always helps but the service was excellent and the food of high quality. Although in the middle of the tourist area we never felt that is was a restaurant spoiled by tourism.

The food was delicious! 2 of us had fish of the day (salmon) with spinach and rice which was very good. one person ordered their veal special which he really liked as well. prices were very reasonable for the quality of food especially in Zurich. service was friendly and efficient. Will definitely go back.

My boyfriend and I ate lunch at Kindli while spending the day in Zurich. The white umbrellas and cobbled streets make you feel like you are living in a postcard. It is so beautiful and the food is delicious. I had the truffle rissotto and my boyfriend had the grilled fish. We shared a bottle of Prosecco. Our waiter was... More

Wonderful Rock Lobster--as good as it gets. Terrific service. A really memorable restaurant. We would always return to Kindli when in Zurich. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for and not out of line for Zurich.

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.
