“Not worth the trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

I booked a table at the restaurant believing it was close to the city centre. In fact, it is about a 30 minutes tram ride (with one change) from the station. Atmosphere was OK (but only just) and the food adequate but it felt like a works canteen - which, with the UBS admin headquarters just down the road, it probably is. Not much to recommend it except that it isn't very expensive, which, for Zurich, is something. But definitely not worth the tram ride.

“Good food, beer and service at Turbinenhalle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

The restaurant und bar turbinenhalle was recommended by the hotel concierge as it was within walking distance. One would never suspect this location to be a great dining experience as it is in an older industrial building (an actual turbine hall) that has been converted into a brewery and restaurant. We had a very well prepared authentic Swiss meal, including a very good Swiss wine, served with enthusiasm and cheer by an attentive server. Having such a good time, we decided to extend and top off the evening with a very good beer prepared on the premises. It was one of the more expensive meals that we ate during our month in Europe but then Zurich is expensive.
