3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My partner had the house burger (F&B Classic Burger) and I had the ribs. The burger was a real let down, absolutely no flavour to it, I was surprised. Especially to be called after the name of the restaurant, you would think it would be good. I honestly would have to guess that zero herbs, spices or even salt were... More

Great ribs, great steak, fantastic beer selection - 90 beers and a third of them are IPAs - My Heaven. A bit noisy when it i s busy, but once the food comes the noise is all forgotten.

Location is pretty nice, close to the green area at the entrance of the city. Possibility to sit outside or inside. The restaurant inside is rustic, very simple, suitable for groups. We were a big group of about 20 people and the room in the top was just perfect. We had some slow-cooked pulled pork nachos to start, which were... More

I'm going there once in a while and I like it. Especially when sitting outside (the terrace reminds me a bit on a Biergarten). The inside ambiance is also nice but since there are not so many tables it gets crowded at peak hours. I have read some negative reviews on the service quality: as a recurring client, my impression... More

Delicious classic American food in a very family friendly environment. Toys and play areas for the kids are a great idea.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Zurich. Not only because of the amazing mouth watering food, but also because of the friendly staff and the cosy atmosphere that is created within the restaurant and also outside in the beer garden. The owner, Mike, makes all guests feel welcomed and this gives it a true personal touch.... More

If you are looking for a place you won't be afraid to bring your kids, this will definitely fit the bill. Comfortable space, friendly service, everyone spoke English well (if that's important to you). We went for dinner, and the Uber driver easily found the location. The pulled pork nachos were fantastic (though the tortilla chips are not necessarily hearty... More

Although hailing themselves as 'the only farm-to-table restaurant in Zurich', your coffee will come with a small brown carton of UHT Milk and a paper packet with white sugar. This farm-to-table philosophy seems a facade in terms of the brunch menu at least. After a more than intensive research into this restaurant both online and by phone in regard to... More

I found this place googling around the area near my hotel, and decided to try it on a whim. Holy crap it was a good idea, the food was brilliant, service the best, and everything the gorgeous Canadian waiter put us onto was a sure winner. He even recommended we choose another wine as the one we had asked for... More

Really like this place and can recommend to try it on a sunny day, so you can enjoy the terrace. Good food, nice staff all speak English very well. I like the brunch menu the best!
