On a quiet Sunday morning in Zurich not much was open. We enjoyed a large fixed price buffet which catered to both the british/american tastes as well as continental European. Plenty of bacon, egg, sausage, pancakes, pastries, cheese, cold meats, fruits, and an array of fresh fruit juices served with tea or coffee. Fantastic quality and lovely service.

Went for a quick meal after day long trip and wasn't disappointed! The service is distant, but polite and efficient, and meal options (had a burger and a steak salad) are good value for money. And finally, the interior is just great: old style building enhanced with mirrors, so there is a lot of visual space inside!

I've been to Imagine a few times and the food is good, burgers are US pub style. I have two kids (one elementary age, one tween) and I tried to take them there for lunch. The server really did not want us there. She tried to put the three of us at a table for 2 because "that would be... More

We have been for a Sunday brunch in this restaurant. The buffet includes everything + omelettes real-time plus free drinks + roast later at noon.... All the food was good and we found it a really very fair choice for brunch, especially considering Zurich prices / other brunch places. Worths a visit!

Spacious location for lunch or dinner or drinks. Handy and quick online reservation. Great central-suits all location. Downside, the menu of steaks or burgers doesnt impress much with taste, serving or quality. Prices in range of 20-30 CHF per meal

The restaurant's strong point is its beautiful interior. I really love the combination of the old building structure with the high ceiling and the modern design hues. It's really stunning in my opinion. What let's the place down is its mediocre food quality. Prices are quite ok, considering you're in Switzerland, in the heart of Zurich. Keep your expectations low... More

We weren't expecting such an amazingly tasty burger & food there. The place is very beautiful with the high ceilings of the hall. It makes it very light and you feel less crowded. We visited during a very quite time though. Not many people around. Service was distant but polite. There's really nothing more we can say about them. The... More

For about 45 Swiss francs you get a great brunch buffet. It was already my third visit. Never tried the burger but heard it's delicious.

This is a convenient place to meet with friends for a few beers and some snacks. As with everything in Zurich, food isn't so cheap. We had some fries, tortilla chips and some meatballs with our beers - tasted fine although portions were small. Service was friendly and there was a good atmosphere. Located in the HBf it's easy for... More
