“Best value in terms of meat in Zurich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Let's be frank, if you're a meat lover, this is probably the best place in Zurich to have your steak on hot stone.

The set-up is hard to describe but quite "typical" (do not go there if you're inviting a high-maintenance girl out). You're going there for the meat.

The service though is highly variable, swings from friendly to rude.

“Pretty good beef fillet and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

A good place for a decent steak - especially for the affordable prices when compared to the rest of Switzerland. A guy (I think the owner) was SUPER friendly and fun to talk to. My friend opted for the horse and because I couldn't get myself to try it, I tried the beef fillet that comes with three different dips and fries (CHF $37). You get an essentially raw steak that you cook yourself on a burning hot stone. A nice experience and the food was a great value for the price.

“Second visit, still delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Last time I sat outside, this time inside, so I thought I'd write another review. It's a different experience. The food is still delicious. Fillet served on a hot stone so you can cook it to taste is highly recommended, especially the horse! If you don't like loud and a bit rowdy places, don't go. I don't mind it and the place being packed is a sign of good food, but if you get bothered by noise and people brushing your chair when they pass, avoid or only go when you can sit outside. Reservations recommended or you might get turned away.

“Bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Good meat served with three different sauces, but service was really, really bad. Dont expect to have service in English even though the staff clearly understands English. That's why poor rating and will probably never go back again. Just too bad as the meat was good: simple portion, but good.

“Best sirloin steak in Zürich - not to be missed!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Positive:
- excellent piece of meat. Your steak is served to you on a hot stone so you can cook to your taste! It's fun, trendy and very tasty

- price/quality ratio: cannot be beaten. 100 CHF for a party of 2 with a half bottle of wine and a bottle of water and of course the meat!!!!

Negative:
- seating area: a bit packed and small. Depending on where you sit you might be bothered with the waiters or customers passing by. Try to get a corner table or by the window. However this is to be considered as a good sign!!!

Definitely will be back for more!!!
