Mixed feelings...

I haven't been to Crazy Cow for a few years and though it was time to pay a new visit. The decor takes some getting used to - basically it's a huge comic book. The German menus are written in Swiss dialect. Really funny for those who understand because a lot of the food item titles are play on... read more

Very friendly staff, speaks also english and french. Typical swiss food, pretty good. Serves until late, which is nice when you arrive late in the city. I liked the decoration a lot. Very clean toilet (possibly the best I have every seen in switzerland!) If you stop by for an early diner, try the "pic nic basket" which is a... More

Visited the restaurant with a colleague. The decor is little bit outdated but i thought we get over it...what I could not get over is the first impression, that i was going in a place that did not feel 'clean'. The menus felt sticky in our hands and maybe we should have walked out. But we did not. The food... More

My husband and I ordered the macaroni and cheese with onions and apples because it sounded amazing. It SOUNDED amazing. It tasted bland and lifeless. I won't touch the fact that it's penne, not macaroni-that's just not important unless you are REALLY into your pasta. What is important is that it has no flavor whatsoever beyond pasta and very boring,... More

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 disliked it. In general... 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.
