Normally while traveling I would avoid shopping centers, but this restaurant in the Sihl City complex came highly recommended by a local with a lovely pug dog (so clearly she could be trusted). It was hard to find and we'd sort of forgotten the name on the way, but found it directly in front of the cinema entrance, in an... More

We had booked the whole restaurant for a private event. Really nice bar setup and service in a nice environment. Dinner courses were good, but heavy.

We went to the Kantine for a quick lunch within colleagues. They offer a few salads, available in two sizes, and that's been our only complaint, the small one is very small, the big one is even too much! Besides that, very nice atmosphere, extremely informal (we sat on a bench, the table is not actually set, there's a bucket... More

As we were to attend a sporting event in the nearby sporting centre we had a quick lunch at the Rüsterei. We were welcomed by a very attentive waiter, we ate the Burger Californa and the shrimp wrap, both we're tasty, as we tried our wine we didn't like it and with out problem it was changed for another. It... More

Set in a shopping area and close to the cinema this is a large restaurant with a large outside seating area. On entering the decor is amazing, exposed pipes and unfinished walls to give a very industrial feel. The menu is small but wow was the food delicious. I had the trout with asparagus and peas served with a miso... More

We came as part of a larger group for dinner. Service was very friendly, highly motivated and attentive. All food and drinks tasted great - a spot in Sihlcity which we can highly recommend.

The Rüsterei retaurant actually has two sections: one casual, the other one more formal. We were at the more formal one and had dinner. My cod with lobster was very well cooked and also my wife's seabass was nice. She was not so happy with the sauce which had not really a terriyaki taste as mentioned on the menu. The... More
