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.

Swiss relatives who took me to the Sternen told me the bratwurst is the best! We enjoyed upstairs enjoying the busy view of the trains and the beauty of Lake Zurich, and they were right - the bratwurst was wonderful. Very pure and served very plainly with the sausage wrapped in a paper with a hearty piece of bread that... More

The location is good. I got a chicken wrap that was simply average, cheap for Switzerland. Just to eat fast and keep walking.

Sternen Grill offers a variety of sausages etc. to lunchtime crowd. Prices are ok, 6.50 CFP for a sausage and a bun. Most people ate the sausage seperate as the bread is hard as a rock. Good experience but same thing in Germany is 2.euros.

At sunset on a winter day, as a first time visitor in Zurich we had dared to sit down on the balcony to try the famous Bratwurst, and I can say it was totally worth! The sausage, bread, mustard, salad, all tasty and delicious. We were lucky to stop by and no doubt, it is something I already miss!
