Nice location by the river. Hot day made for very comfortable meal under the umbrella. Food was just ok, and service was too.

The cafe is placed directly on the river and the view is excellent. The food however is a different story. I can't recommend this place.

Very nice little cafe particularly in good weather when one can sit right next to the water. The perfect romantic Zurich experience with the ducks and swans on the river for background.

Quaint little cafe overlooking the Linmat River. We had the Spaetzle baked with Raclette cheese and the Ravioli Spinach-Ricotta baked with Raclette cheese. Both dishes very average and rather uninspiring. So go there, have coffee and enjoy the views but do not expect a gourmet meal.

So we got dropped off around the corner on our first day here, hadn't had any breakfast so we wanted to grab something quick. Seemed like the only option. It's not a bad place for a quick coffee and small bite to eat, but does not seem at all like a place I would come to for a proper lunch... More

If cafes-restaurants are about location and food this has the location and great views. Food was ok but nothing extraordinary and felt like being where tourist come. It was ok if you are in the area and want to enjoy the views but otherwise you can find better places.

Worst place in Zurich so far. Living here for more than a year and this place is another league... Nice location right next to the river and this is probably why they are still there; many first (and one time) visitors. It's a tourist trap. A part from the fact that half the menu wasn't available and that nothing was... More

The location is superb. Looking over the Limmat at the edge of the Old Town of Zurich. Coffee is very good and the same is true for the pastry. Portions are copious. Service very good even at a time when the place is busy. It is a lovely place as long as the weather is good. Quite a rare asset... More

We had no service problems but it was a late lunch so the rush was over. All tables appeared to get efficient service. We sat inside to avoid the smokers. Generous serving of Tuna salad which was fresh and tasty. We shared the salad. Average pricing for waterfront in Zurich. Not outrageously expensive.
