Beef from the hot stone, served with 3 different sauces, all great taste and potatoe slices, all was simply best quality. Starter was impressive Tomato/Mozzarella salad, rarely had such a great caprese salad. located nicely, small place, in- and outside seating. I will go back for sure, really liked it

We came with friends for dinner and decided for special meat on the hot stone. Service was very friendly and helpful. The meat tasted excellent and it was a great experience to grill it directly on the hot stone which everybody received on an own plate together with various sauces and potatoes or other side dishes.

That's not a posh place, that's not a fancy place. But the food and the service were really really nice! Grilled veggies are crunchy and soft at the same time, fries are seasoned with a paprika salt and the XXL Wiener Schnitzel was very tender and the bread crumbs well seasoned. Delicious with fresh lemon juice & Quollfrish beer...

Sure, the food is fine. The meat was great. But that's simply what you expect for the price. Minus points for unattentive service and very uncozy ambiente.

The idea of the hot stone meat is great (not new - you can get it at other places too - but it is just nice to have something to do during a meal :-) and you can get other dishes too. But I was disappointed by the quality of the meat - even though I have a beef filet... More

We found an offer in Groupon and tried the hotstone menu. The service was very good and the meat was great, although there was not much place outside and tables were a bit small. Highly recommended, but try to find an offer in Groupon!

Nothing wrong with this establishment. The service is perhaps a bit crude at times. And the meat is good but we've had better. The decor is simple if not even immemorable. However, we've had a great time and would go back. You won't regret going.

The speciality is meat on the hot stone. I have hardly seen such a wide selection of available meat (incl. zebra etc.). I had beef filet and it was very good. Price 39 CHF for 200g which is very reasonable considering it's Zurich. Meat comes with potato cuts and 3 sauces (cocktail, tartare and curry). The entrées are quite generous... More

We got there because of a deal online, salad was hopeless, rostbeef almost impossible to eat, fries ok (nothing hard to do indeed), dessert very very very poor. I would rather eat a kebab anywhere that sitting at this place again...maybe steaks are good but food quality is poor. Service was fast and friendly.
