“good vegetarian/vegan buffet, but expensive. Very very expensive.”
This was our first time to Zurich and to Hiltl. We chose to do the buffet, which as many have noted, is quite extensive and all vegetarian. Too many choices, as everything looked great. Not a whole lot was particularly creative (the usual dals, curries and falafel were ever-present), but the food was very good and flavorful. But as with most buffets, the price is determined by weight and while these things always tend to be a bit overpriced so as to cover the overhead of the vendor, paying 20-30 Francs for each person for one serving seemed a bit much. But that said, the food was good and it's great that there is a restaurant with many vegetarian options.

Thank you very much for your feedback and your compliments regarding the quality of our buffet.

We thank you equally for the comments about the prices which we take in serious consideration.
Quality and variety are our prime objectives and we have more than 40 cooks preparing a range of roughly one hundred different dishes daily from scratch in our production kitchen.
As you’ve maybe remarked our specifications for our ingredients are equally very strict and guarantee a high standard of our offer.
We are aware of the face that our price level is elevated on first sight, which makes us very price sensitive.
But according to the saying “quality has it’s price” we are confident that you and all our numerous other quests will take into consideration that we will not compromise in matters of variety and quality.
Again thank you very much for pointing us out this very sensitive argument.
