One of my favs in Zurich

I have lived in Zurich for nearly four years and this remains one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the food is good, and the price is decent for Switzerland. I also want to mention that they always have some nice veggie and vegan options. I am not a vegetarian, but I like... read more

Great setting by the lake, but the food is basic and way over-priced. The salad was basically leaves but the bread was nice and fresh to mop up the not-so-tasty French dressing. The drinks (as usual in Zürich) were expensive too.

I went with a big group of people to the Ziegel oh Lac on a Thursday night. We were all looking forward to a funny night with friends and enjoy a bit of Italian food. It turned out to be a huge disappointment. The service was very unfriendly, the food was overcooked and not tasty. But at least the view... More

Summing up, this is an excellent restaurant if you like the alternative, hippie-like lifestyle with a wide range of vegan and vegetarian dishes and you do not mind to wait a little longer or have self-service beverage. PRO: Situated on the shore of Lake Zurich with a wonderful view of the mountains on one side and the historic old city... More

I was wondering about some critics written here which said that the spaghetti costs around 20 francs but sorry that`s not true. In fact they offer nearly the cheapest Napoli and Bognese in town. The vegetarian version was 12,50 chf and the really delicious "Bolo" 17,50 chf i think. Made with organic beef from the region they told. That`s unbeatable... More

If you are in Zürich, you have to visit the 'Rote Fabrik'. Great location, wonderful dishes and friendly service. Wonderful view and nice atmosphere. Perfect location for lunch and/or dinner on a sunny day.

I decided to have lunch here one day by the lake. I arrived before the restaurant opened so I took the opportunity to just look around for a moment. They offer outside seating in nice weather right on the edge of the lake. The inside seating area consists of basic tables. As I walked near the side entrance of the... More

Me and my husband love to go there for food, for a nice ambiance and a great lake view. We always get a nice plate of meat or fish with fresh veggies, and they claim their produce coming form organic sources which is a big plus for us.

A group of us were booked in for this restaurant. From start to finish the woman who was looking after us was great and I think everyone very much enjoyed themselves. What was really nice is that the restaurant had booked us seats both outside and inside. Therefore, we were able to have nibbles and a drink to begin with... More
