After indulging in chocolates at cafe Sprungli we returned to our amazing Hotel Widder. Luckily we sat down to rest at the bar on the ground floor. We were seated outside so we could watch the people go by on the quaint cobblestones in the Old City. I ordered a Mille feuille (a fancy vanilla slice) with a delicious layer... More

Their drink menu is literally a book w/ a table of contents ! Their artisan cocktails that change monthly are some of the best I have tasted in my travels! If u are in the mood to sip a fine liquor what ever your craving or pocketbook will allow they have you covered! Even a great list! Beautiful hand carved... More

I came here for drinks on several occasions but I'm still not really sold on it. It's a great place for whisky lovers and the service is helpful, friendly but not always that attentive. Last time I went with a friend. We wanted something fresh so we went for a gin mare. What got served was anything like a gin... More

Very small little restaurant, but with very homely service and great tarte flambee. Definitely worth a visit I went for the classic Lorraine which was perfect! It was like being in Alsace

We were told this was a 'must see' while our visit in Zurich. It was! Walking around the town we stopped in for a bite and a drink. The bartender was attentive and helpful. We weren't sure what to order and he asked questions to our preferences and said he'd go make something special for each of us. He certainly... More

This used to be a great place to be. Tasty drinks, piano man, good mood. I was in shock when I was there with a friend to have a drink after dinner. The barkeeper was as unfriendly as he can be, not even looking at us when we were ordering, commenting to his colleague and eating the nuts that were... More

Woah man, do they have a whiskey bar! This amazing little location is exactly what you would want in a high-class bar experience. The whiskey library alone is extremely impressive, and the staff are fantastic. It was just a really nice experience all around.

I could not find a table when I arrived, I sat down at the counter and waited for my friend. When she showed up, people behind us just left and their table came free. So I told the bartender that we were moving to the table, I was taking my drink, turned around and I saw a service guy was... More
