We decided to try this bustling eatery right in the center of town at the recommendation of a local. It was great! So tasty we ended up going twice! There is both a take away down stairs and then a sit down upstairs with tables overlooking the lake (both indoor and outdoor seating). The service was fast and very friendly.... More

Overall we found the food in Switzerland to not be the greatest. It was a pleasant surprise to find a decent meal here. We all had different sausages and sides and were able to share/sample each. Some were good, others not so much. In the end each type of sausage is there because there is a market for it. Being... More

It was quick and tasty, tripadvisor helped us to find this place. Beer here is also good and goes well with the wurst. Bread and mustard included in price.

My family and I visited Zürich in January, and suffice it to say, it was a little chilly. We finished up a few long days (i.e. Jungfraujoch and back) with delicious warm brats and rolls from Sternan Grill. For us, it couldn't have been better: cheap, delicious, authentic, unassuming, filling/hot but not greasy/heavy. The staff is friendly, there is plenty... More

To have a Swiss Veal Sausage (Bratwurst) on a balcony table at Bellevue is a VIP way of eating this otherwise very traditional fast food. The sausage is tasty with nice bite. It comes with various side dishes and a solid drink list. It is not a cheap way to eat Bratwurst but considering the great location and view it... More

This is a very popular venue with both eat out and seated dining. The seated dining is upstairs with views over the Christmas market. Seating is bench style enabling you to make new friends. The food is fairly basic but tasty and the service was friendly and swift. They have menus in multiple languages so just ask if you are... More

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
