Better as a bar than a restaurant.

Unfortunately my experience in this place was not good at all. Indeed the place inside is very peculiar and has a lot of funny decorations, the service is also nice and jovial, but unfortunately the food is not good at all (and the prices were a bit high). I also ordered a milkshake and I totally... read more

Once again, the restaurant does not give what it promisses. Only by serving dishes in a fancy way does not mean that they have to be good. Even if the quality is not bad, it is never worth the price and also the "gag" of having a menue in the local slang does not imply that it has to stay... More

I loved the Leoneck Hotel which we stayed in.Dident actually eat breakfast here as I thought it far too expensive but then Zurich is expensive but I think they do this for a reason, to keep it classy

It's a bit kitschy as the walls are brightly painted in all manner of Swiss kitsch, but the food was great although a bit pricey, but that's Switzerland for you. I had a great time.

The food here was quite good and as we were staying in the Leoneck Hotel, it was extremely convenient for us. It had a very informal Swiss atmosphere that we enjoyed.

FOOD Burgers are the speciality, but what is actually really good here are the FRENCH FRIES. Seriously, forget the burgers, get the fries. DRINKS Beer and soft drinks, decent beer. SERVICE Friendly and competent. The only employee I actually saw was a very cute Spanish boy, which was almost surprising considering how much value they put on the Swissness factor,... More

Well, everything in Zurich costs a lot. The food and service were and the server was friendly without being intrusive. He speaks English. Probably the other servers do, too. We didn't exactly choose the restaurant; it happened to be in the hotel and we were tired after a long trip, so we ate there. Perhaps the food was better than... More

This place used to be very hip and there was a great attention to service. It now seem to have gone downhill a lot. I think it is time for a new makeover and a bit of a pep talk with the staff.
