“Better for Dinner than Brunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I have recently revisited Iroquois for dinner and been pleasantly surprised.
service was much better than for Brunch (see my earlier review). Staff were helpful and friendly and there was very little waiting.
Food was good, if fairly limited in choice. I do like the fact that you can have a low carb burger where the bread is replaced by a salad.

“Nothing special but nice burgers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I've been here both at brunch and dinner time: the menus are not that different after all, as you'll most likely end up with some variations of burgers.
The hamburger is good if nothing to write home about. Surely not a fancy place but a good choice for a brunch on the patio and for the occasional dinner if you find yourself in the area (by the promenade, of course) at night.

“Good but Frightfully Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We discovered this restaurant on a Sunday walking back from a visit to the lakeside park. It looked inviting and seemed to be, as much as anything else, a neighborhood bar where you could gather to watch a game on TV. That night, the Swiss National Hockey team was playing in the finals of the World Championship so it was a little busy. We found a seat outside, nonetheless. I saw some bad comments about the service here but our waitress was quite pleasant and competent throughout our meal. The biggest issue, as it is with all things in Zurich, was that everything on the menu was very expensive. But I think perhaps the situation was even a bit more extreme here. My colleague had a specialty burger and I had a soup and large Greek Salad. Both meals were about 25 CHF before adding in drinks. The final bill was 72 CHF. Those are shocking prices for North Americans to pay for that type of fare and are at least twice what we would have paid for something comparable at home. Having said that, the food was actually pretty good. And the fact that a sporting event other than English football was on TV and drawing huge interest made it an interesting visit to this restaurant.
