Very Good Indeed

I've always found Steinburg to be very cozy, which makes it a perfect place for a warm winter's dinner (it's actually also nice in summer but the ambience to me fits perfectly with winter). Last night we had started with the fried and the terrine of fois gras, followed by the shrimp cafe de Paris... read more

I've been to Steinburg 3 times during visits to Kusnacht. It is one of my very favorite restaurants there. I love the ambiance, the food, the reality that it is owned and managed by a husband/chef and his wife team. The cuisine is always exceptional and the service flawless. I've visited in both summer and winter, and find both seasons... More

We came here for dinner but were too late! So they seated us at the bar. We ordered salads and wine and were very satisfied with service and food.

For a restaurant of that class I was very happy with the quality of the food, the ambience, the attentive service, the decoration and the view. I was not inspired by the host, who basically discounted my feedback regarding the taste of the dessert: the strawberries tasted like they were cut on a cutting board, which was also used for...

Excellent quality swiss food in a lovely setting. Average service but great food. We started with soup. For our mains we tried the Zürcher Geschnetzeltes - veal thinly sliced in a mushroom sauce served with a traditional rosti. That was fantastic. Don't miss the chocolate mousse for dessert.

Nice ambiance: it was summer and we sat on veranda overlooking Zurichsee but we could see that in winter the atmosphere likely to be cozy as well. Food was generally well prepared (especially the steak) but not too imaginative (as we find most of places in CH are) and of course expensive (as pretty much all places in CH are).... More

Service was not friendly (to put it mildly). Food was at most normal. Ambiance was good. Prices are not justified at all.

As a steaklover and person with some food allergies I usually order steaks with some special wishes - and this resaurant is definitely fine for me. The steak was superb (not every chef can make a medium-welldone steak correctly!), wine selection is also ok and the staff were precious and careful. The only downside are prices and a bit bored-looking... More

Simply delicious food. We had the carpaccio and foie gras as appetizer and filet rossini as main. Loved it and will definitely come back!
