Loved the food here. Relaxed atmosphere. It is a great place for a casual business dinner. The staff was really friendly and helped with the food and vine choices. Moules et frites are always a plus.

This is lovely French Brasserie in the city centre of Zurich. Cosy and elegant. Cuisine is superb, good French and Italian wines. Very good service. It is pricey but enjoyable.

It's not easy to find a restaurant where the kitchen is still open after 22h in Zurich. Luckily this was. I always pass by and I never thought of visiting it and I am so happy I did that night. The service was friendly and the lady offered us some alternatives due to the late time we came. She suggested... More

You need a reservation and you know why once you have been there. We had a perfect dinner and we are going again. What else do you need to know?

Lovely ambiance. Accommodating staff. Great wine list. Small space so reservations are recommended. They were fully booked when I walked in but offered me a table if I was willing to eat quickly. I appreciated the option and took them up on it.

Lunch on a Saturday, very nice area, people very friendly and professional, I had the beef filet café de Paris: really fabulous and my wife the burger that was absolutely delicious too. A bit pricy but great place to go.

Small Space, but very pleasing atmosphere. Pommes Allumettes alone are worth a visit. The service is professional but funny and friendly. It's a great place to meet with friends and family.

His quaint and intimate restaurant is tucked away in the old town of Zurich and serves up some of the best French food we've eaten outside of France. The restaurant is small and cosy but packs a punch when it comes to the food. The portions are generous and we left holding our belly's. We had the most beautifully cooked... More
