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

I went there yesterday (Sept 16th) for my friend's birthday brunch and it was really great. On a sunny day, it's fantastic as it is by the lake, with a great terrace and a lot of choices in food and drinks (great fresh orange juice, and lattes). The area is a bit alternative, which is great, and enables to discover... More

The Rote Fabrik is the "alternative" reference in Zürich. Expect plenty of graffiti-covered brick walls, young adults with turquoise hair, piercings and tattoos, and lots of left-wing flyers and posters. They are well-known for hosting the "anti-Street Parade" in summer. All this in a rather nice former industrial setting (as these places tend to be), with an exceptional lakeside location... More
