Good food but slow service

The food is really good and a bit expensive but decently priced comparing to other Zurich restaurants. Food was good, but considering the caliber of the restaurant I was surprised at how slow the service was.

Didi's Frieden is a short walk from the Marriott hotel, in an area away from the main tourist haunts. The small restaurant has a fresh look and a lively feel. The crowd is mostly local. We were give English menus by our English-speaking waitress, who was efficient and took good care of us. The menu is not huge, but there... More

We found this restaurant by accident walking back to our hotel after a swim in the river near the club Dynamo- what a lucky find. Inventive dishes with subtle flavors- such as a roasted pigeon au jus kept warm atop a sweet potato delicately spiced with coriander & other spices We would travel back to Zurich just to eat here...

Have been aware of this restaurant for so long but never had the chance to be there 'cause they're always fully booked. We were there for lunch walk-in... and luckily we got the table since we chose to sit inside instead of outside. The terrace is filled with many business people. A great variety of choices on the lunch menu,... More

I have just returned from a delicious meal at Didi's. The food was excellent and well presented. The staff were friendly even though english is not their native language. If you want a great dining experience, I recommend you check Didi's Frieden out.

We had the lunch menu ... Selected the fish as well as ravioli specials of the day. Both came with small gazpacho soup. All of the food was very good. We split a dessert - which was just ok - and bottle of water - the bill came to 105 Swiss francs for 2 (and we had NO drinks).

Very nice and cozy restaurant - we really enjoyed our dinner tonight. Must visit again when we are back in Zurich next time. No rush, a very relaxed atmosphere.

If you live in town you probably already have heard about this place. They have the best meal in town! Weather if you are having a business lunch or a cozy dinner. Don't miss they're 4 courses menu which changes monthly or check out for their specials (evenings). The wine card is outstanding and the service would love to offer... More

Although it was always well visited when I was there it seems to me like a real insider tip. So hush and don't tell nobody about Didi's Frieden, because I wish it stays like it is ;-)
