Had already enjoyed several business lunches inside the restaurant, now spent a very ejoyable summer evening on the terrace. The food is always excellent; very tasty, original and fresh. The wine list is excellent. And the staff is the jewel in the crown, truly friendly, welcoming, professional and attentive. Not a cheap meal but so worth it! Will definitely return.

I've been here a few times while living in switzerland. The staff are amazing and very friendly. The food is excellent and so is the wine. They have a California wine called F.U.C.K which is to die for.

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
