Small location, and avery tight on space, but that would be the only negative. Very good food, very good drinks selection, and the service is particularly friendly (by Zurich standards at least). Special mention to the manager who is always amiable and accomodating. A good place to take a date or a partner for a nice intimate evening without being... More

Lumiere restaurant will definitely enlighten your stay in ZH. Food is excellent (go for the poulpe - octopus - and then the entrecote, the sauce is to die for) but the atmosphere is just fantastic. Winters are more cosy and summer very enjoyable on the lovely terrace. Staff is really nice and the boss always present (no miracle!). Not to... More

Eating atk "Lumiere" in Zurich promises an experience you will not forget - I promise. The place serves unbelievable dishes. The house specialty "Cafe de Paris" is simply a masterpiece, the veal chicks is poetry in motion and actually when you look around at this always full restaurant, you see nothing but smiling faces. No way I'll miss eating in... More

I totally recommend this restaurant! 100%! The food is high quality and delishes. The atmosphere of the restaurant inside is very cozy. This place is always packed (in the evening), so make sure you call in advance for a table...

Lovely french bistro at Rennweg. Solid meals and service. Pricing rather high but ok for the central location. Highlight: Best Pommes Allumettes in town!

Lumière has become my favorite restaurant in Zurich. Not only is the food consistenly excellent (last night's Funghi Porcini sautéed in butter and herbs were a true delight, and the triple Entrecôte Café de Paris was superb), but also send service is outstandingly friendly and attentive. Big compliments to Sara and Alessandro! Also on Friday evenings you get the Millefeuille/Napoleon,... More

The kitchen is definitely delicious, the choice and the quality of the food is high. Whereas at the given pricing, it was not extraordinary and with some fine-tuning the culinary experience can be improved. Pommes allumettes with many menus... for me not a high-end side-order. The service personnel is friendly, whereas I felt we had to many different waiters /... More
