It is an experience to be done. A little bit expensive but the food and the atmosphere is worth! Between the main courses there are lots of "amuse bouches".

This is my favorite place for summer time- great layout, friendly service and tasty menu. Also great place to grab a beer or have afternoon tea in an early spring day like today. They can be a bit packed during weekend and might be under- staffed occasionally though.

I visited this restaurant with my wife on a Saturday evening. The place was half full. We did no investigate too much and we trusted the reputation of the place. I knew that few years ago this was one of the top restaurants in Zurich even though we have never eaten there before. The location is definitely very nice, probably... More

This place was amazing. The food was some of the best i have ever had and the presentation on the plates was very artful. The waiter and sommelier were very helpful. I would like to come back for a special occasion.

I visited Spice with friends for a special birthday lunch and loved every delicious, imaginative bite. So much thought was given to every intricate detail of the food, and all four of us were continually delighted by its surprising textures, colors, and flavor combinations. If you are in Zürich and enjoy fine food, this is a wonderful place to go.... More

If Swiss orderedness is your thing then you'll want to give Rigiblick a go. Tables laid out with mathematical precision in a barely decorated room. Guests sit almost uniformly towards the window which hosts a view across the city. All this makes for a cold welcoming upon entering the restaurant area. However, this frigidity is forgiven once the food starts... More

This was the 3rd time for me in Spice, but the first time after the new young chef took over. We had a long series of amuse-bouche. We took the 5 courses menu and they were all very special and creative. The cheese buffet was ok but nothing special compared to what one gets in France. Dessert was also ok... More

Without any doubt one of the best restaurants we ever visited. From the service - friendly and competent without any exaggeration, the food - fresh and prepared with care. Dennis Puchert, the chef de cuisine, love experiments but he obviously has a very strong instinct for combination of tastes, temperatures and shapes, which sometimes will surprise you, like e.g. icecream...

to make it quick: our best dinner in Zurich since years. The service crew is very responsive, friendly and knows everything about the restaurants offering and its dishes. I do not need to mention that each dish is excellent but you have to like "special" combinations of spices, fish and meat etc. The restaurant atmosphere might be a bit cold... More

Maybe it was the heavy rain outside that kept most people away from the restaurant this Saturday afternoon? Maybe they were too busy shopping in the near city? For a long time we were the only guests up here and we enjoyed this peaceful and stylish haven above Zurich. Staff were attentive and friendly and, of course with us being... More
