Before ordering I explicitly asked for Lunch Check as a valid payment method and even showed the card. The restaurant is listed in the latest Lunch Check Restaurant List. After ordering I waited to pick-up the food. At payment suddenly the card was not accepted. They only would accept the old Lunch Check paper vouchers which lead to some discussion.... More

We sat upstairs in sternen grill in a dining room that overlooked the opera house and the city with lovely decor and friendly staff. The food may be slightly more expensive than your average sausage vendor however still remains to be 'cheap' in the world of Swiss dining out, around 20 CHF each with drinks. I had the veal sausage... More

Was there for a business dinner with colleagues. Had the bratwurst with Rösti and special onion gravy. Taste was OK, but not as special as I hoped for. Maybe the expectations were too high. Service was OK. They forgot one complete meal and a side I ordered. Would maybe go there again for a "downstairs" visit to grab a sausage... More

Enjoy Swiss cuisine without the outrageous prices you see at most restaurants. Good options for typical Swiss cuisine. Worth a try.

We were looking for some bratwurst while exploring Zurich. Sternen Grill was recommended and we were not disappointed as the staff were very helpful in finding us a seat and explaining the various menu items. Also suggesting a local beer. The service was quick and food delicious. Recommended for a nice lunch.

This was recommended as the best place in Zurich for a swiss sausage. We certainly enjoyed them. Served in a fresh crusty roll they were very tasty. Service is fast and there are chairs / stools etc to eat at. Sausages are around 7-8 chf so pretty good value for a quick lunch.

Knowing that its expensive everywhere to eat in Zurich, this small resto is one of the good choice for budget eating (zurich standard). For those adores big portion home food very much, you will find this a bit meh (unsatisfied).

This is the place in Zurich to go for a Bratwurst and a Buerli (specialty roll of St. Gallen.) The Bratwurst is excellent and great to eat casually there or on the go.

I really like this place. Simple, unpretentious, inexpensive. St Gallen bratwurst in a wax paper, with mustard, bread and a potato salad for CHF 13.50. Great for hangovers!!

I got the bratwurst and it was delicious and fast. Great to get and take and eat on bench by lake. It was hard to eat on a round roll and without a plate. They do not take credit card.
