We got off to a bad start, having reserved a table in advance, we arrived to find they put us to the left of the entrance near the toilets and not in the main dining area (despite tables being free). Our German server was friendly but had no idea about the dishes she was serving! She brought the amuses-boûche and... More

We tried this based on Trip Advisor rating and were not disappointed. We had trouble understanding the German menu in the window, so weren't sure what we would find, but the English menu we were given was very easy. Yes, it is expensive, but SO GOOD - worth it. Veal cordon bleu and pork special were excellent. We shared appetizer... More

We were walking past this restaurant one evening and noticed how full and vibrant it looked. Quite a contrast with Domm just a few metres away, which looked very correct and a bit "stiff" with hardly any customers. So we made a booking at Didi's for the following evening. Pretty important to make a reservation, we think. The welcome was... More

We had one night in Zurich and tried Didi's. They were able to accommodate us without a reservation, though suggest if you can make one to do so, or call when you are on your way. The service was very good. The food was excellent. I would highly recommend Didi's and will go back when in Zurich again. Cheers!

Many people don't know what to expect from Swiss cuisine when they arrive in Switzerland. They are familiar with cheese fondue and raclette, but it usually ends there. Fortunately, Swiss cuisine has learned a lot from Austria. Didis Frieden offers a brilliant selection of Swiss and Austrian cuisine served in a modern way in an elegant restaurant setting. The wine... More

I come to this restaurant often, perhaps once a week. Never have I been disappointed. The cuisine is fresh from the market. it's not fancy, but excellent in the classic (but light) way. The menu changes constantly, the lunch menu, which gives you 8 to 10 options, changes on a weekly basis. There is also outside seating for those summer... More

Small, quiet restaurant near the heart of Zurich, but away from the tourists. We had a wonderful meal here. The service is impeccable, the wine list extensive, and the food is delicious. We had the veal and the guinea hen, and both were melt in your mouth tender. Do make reservations, the place fills quickly, mostly with locals. This was... More

A very nice, small restaurant where you can enjoy a conversation while eating outstanding, imaginative food. Simple and outstanding food, great and very attentive service. Booking essential as the restaurant is very small.

My wife and I dined at Didi's on a warm evening in June. It was third or fourth time we've been to Didi's. We sat in the garden, it was fun watching the other diners arrive and dine. The evening started with an amuse-bouche from the kitchen. Cold asparagus soup accompanied by raw bacon and a green sauce that I... More

The only thing that this amazing restaurant suffers from is a location which is not great, ie no views and a little walk away from the trendy areas in Zurich. The rest is fab: small menu with many inviting dishes, impeccable ingredients cooked to perfection, really nice wine list and - rare in Switzerland - very friendly service. A must... More
