Probably the best Mediterranean Restaurant in Zurich

The menu is small: Five starters and five main courses. But there are masters at work, not only in the kitchen, but also - his wife - front of the house. Every course is fresh market cuisine. The wine list is one of the most innovative ones for Italian wines in Zurich. It's not a restaurant for a... read more

This is quite simply a great restaurant, the food is always good and the service an absolute pleasure, we've been a few times, it's not easy to get a table, but if one try's spontaneously it sometimes works. The menu is small but perfect, I'm always suspicious of huge menus anyway and this place confirms it, small but excellent. The... More

A real insiders' tip, a small jewel well hidden behind an unspectacular and not very attractive entrance. The food is just fantastic and the service very attentive. That's the perfect place to let the chef guide you through a wonderful culinary journey and rediscover old savours. One of my favorite in Zurich for special occasions or to surprise friends.

You wouldn't expect anything nice behind these doors at Seilergraben but the restaurant is cute and intimate. A very cozy place. The service is professional also if a bit on the pushy side. But the excellent food makes up for everything! Starters as well as main courses were delicious and the sizes good. The ingredients are fresh and the presentation... More

Today we had lunch in this restaurant. It is one of the restaurants in Zurich which I will definitely go back again. There was a selection of 4 appetizers and 4 main courses and a home made dessert (appletart). The dishes are all out of best quality incredients and freshly prepared. The variety is extraordinary and far from standard meals... More

We chose this restaurant for a family dinner while visiting Zurich on the basis of its glowing tripadvisor reviews and were disappointed. True, the food was delicious, but the prices were so high that there was no way we could relax and enjoy ourselves. Of course Zurich is expensive, but this restaurant was truly out of line. The high cost... More

Excellent, cozy restaurant. The menu is fresh daily and the staff is friendly and will guide you through choosing the best dished for your group. The cost is amazingly affordable for the amount of food and ambience you will get to experience. A must try.
