No, it was not good. It was extraordinary.... the way semi-tasteless vegetables such as zucchini or pumpkin can be arranged has been a culinary delight and surprise on the day Michelin stars rained over Switzerland... culinary highlights of the past (Max Kehl) and the present...(Caminada, Wasmer) were almost forgotten. The wine accompagnement was well suited and innovative. Service very efficient and courteois even though the shift end at 10 pm came a bit as a surprise. Urs B got it right in his review after all.More

A wonderful discovery of flavors. We chose to take 9 dishes in 3 so we tasted them all except dessert as we were too full by then :-). Loved the open kitchen, the informal vibe of a one star, the kind service. Lovely location in...Zurich too. We will definitely come back!More

We got the seven course menu with non-alcoholic drink pairings. It is difficult to describe all the courses and drinks but generally speaking they were quite good and original. My favorite drink was a soda water, with a touch of sweetener and fennel/basil. The dishes...were quite complex using ingredients such as chanterelles, corn, blueberries, etc. Some were better than others, but the only false note was an eggplant dish that had Asian inspiration and really was quite salty, too salty for my taste.More

We had a lovely evening and a lovely meal. However, we find the Neue Taverne should make up its mind if it is a Michelin tavern styled restaurant or a normal Michelin starred restaurant. In a tavern you expect generous portions and a generous wine...pairing. In a Michelin starred restaurant you'll expect classy dining with enough space and room. In Neue Taverne you sit more or less 50 centimetres from the next table on wooden chairs and benches (like a tavern), but you get the Michelin styled portions and Michelin styled portions of wine (I even had to pay extra when I asked for some more wine within my wine pairing). And to be clear, we have dined our fair share in M. starred restaurants. So, you have the feeling that a lot of people are stuffed in 1 room... and at the same time, you get the Michelin styled portions with the Michelin prices. PS: The wine pairing was really good. PPS. The staff is really niceMore

Neue Taverne is a One Michelin Star vegetarian friendly restaurant owned by Nenad Mlinarevic (one of the judge in Masterchef Switerland). My partner and I took the 7 course surprise menu and loved every dish but unfortunately we were disappointed with dessert. My other letdown...was that we weren’t given any menu at the end of surprise dining experience to reflect what are the marvelous food that we have enjoyed. Nonetheless, the restaurant is highly recommended. Wait staff was professional and the overall experience was unforgettable.More

Tasting menu was innovative and tasty. This is vegetarian cuisine taken to the next level. Non-alcoholic pairing was refreshing and well thought through. Service is efficient and friendly. Very highly recommend.

We came for dinner to this lovely restaurant in the heart of Zurich. All service personnel was very very friendly and helpful. Food (all vegetarian) and drinks came with an outstanding mix of ingredients. Everything tasted excellent - need to return to check all the...other items on the menu. Is this a helpful review?

Food and drinks were excellent, price moderate! I didn't know they have a Michelin Star (even though I thought they could have one or two). Space was a bit tight - we had a very small table in the corner. Atmosphere was not as cold...as usual in this class. However, we felt cozy.More

Went for our anniversary lunch but instead of a Michelin experience had a normal fine dine experience. The person serving us had difficulty in explaining menu in English. Although the restaurant knew we had a special occasion there was nothing that we got as we...are used to get at other Michelin places.More

We enjoyed a terrific evening in the Neue Taverne. It began with a very friendly welcome, great Apéro and then one awesome course after the other. All vegetarian, each course a very innovative approach to cooking. And don't forget to order the carrot Schnapps. We'll...be backMore

We went for the 10 course menu: what an amazing rollercoaster ride it was. I must admit, I started being quite a sceptic, but dish by dish I came around: amazingly original, great service (from aperitif on beautiful outside terrace until desert), beautiful cosy interior:...but the biggest gem is the food. I admit being a carnivore at heart, but if all veggie dishes would have this taste, I‘d likely turn vegetarian tomorrow: a great and original find!!!!More

This was certainly not my first time in a vegetarian restaurant, but the first time I tried one at top price point. My non-vegetarian friends where highly impressed. Neue Taverne does restaurant certainly provide good quality prodcuts and newbies to vegetarian food will be impressed,...but I have eaten better and cheaper and restaurants of a lesser reputation. We had the 'Tavolata' a tasting menu where you share 10 dishes. Great idea, but out of the 10 dishes 2 were a revelation, 3 excellent, 4 were underwhelming and 1 quite frankly disgusting to my taste. The one dish I did not like was a fake chicken product. It was just some gummy meat replacement with a terribly sweet sauce on top. Now to be fair my non-vegitarian friends actually liked it, so this might just have been my personal preference. Bottom line is that all of us had a few favourites, but left unsatisfied. Given that the Chef's Table is usually a restaurants calling card, this was very disappointing. But the worst was the wine. We went with the recommeded wine course. At 50 CHF per person my expectation was that the selected wine would balance very well with the courses. Well they did not. The wine was nice, but there was no special matching of the wine to the courses. It is clear that this restaurant has zero wine culture. The name of the wine was given, without any explanation to why this wine was selected or on what level it matched the meal. The different wine courses were topped on each other in the same glas. I guess there might be an aspect of sustainability here and in all fairness we did receive a fresh glass for the red wine upon our request. Services was okay. Extremely friendly, but not what I am used to for a restaurant of this price point. In Summary: Maybe worth a try, but DO NOT go for the Tavolata or the accompanying wine selection. That is just over-priced.More
