Good Steak and Fries with a nice view of Lake Zürich. On the expensive side of dining. A good spot for a special lunch or outing in Zürich.

I have been visiting the Bürgli for many years and I am glad it has not really changed much over the years. This time it was to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday together with with good friends, a group of fifteen. When wee booked -...well in advance - the management asked if we could decide on a menu for all which I think is fair enough. It was a busy Sunday at lunchtime - weather being fine - all tables in the garden were occupied. From the garden you have a splendid view of the city and the lake. We were warmly received as our guests arrived and drinks were served quickly. We had decided on a "Petite Arvine" from the Valais and lots of water as it was a warm day. Small bites were served along with the apéritif. We then settled around two tables and hat a wonderful "Green in Green Salad" lettuce with sliced avocado and apples and chives with white balsamico dressing. The main course was - of course - their signature dish: entrecôte Café de Paris with - probably - the best French fries you can get in Zurich. The meat was very tender and perfectly cooked medium rare and the sauce - what can I say? absolutely delicious. From the extensive wine list I had ordered a 2016 Ch. Chasse-Spleen - one of my favourites - which everyone seemed to like very much. A word about service: There is a battle raging in the local papers at the moment about bad service and excessive prices in restaurants in Zurich. None of that applies to the Bürgli. The people serving us were very friendly and always had a happy smile for us. Also we never had to call them, the always were around - unobtrusively but very effective! We spent a lovely time at the Bürgli!More

Having heard a lot of good reviews we went for dinner. Inside the restaurant (room in the back) it was quite loud. The waiters were friendly in a weird way and the food... well their signature entrecôte-dish is brought in 3 plates: 1 with the...meat and the café de paris (sauce), 1 with salty french fries and 1 where you put both together to eat :-) No veggies or other sides.More

The "Buergli" is the place to be if you like extraordinary friendly service and fresh and local produce. We come here for dinner several times during the year and we have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is very pleasant and when you enter the restaurant,...you feel welcomed from the first minute. Wether you like meat, fish, veggies, sweet desserts, etc. the menu selection is just right and the meals freshly cooked. The prices are just appropriate for this type of cuisine. They have also a very nice garden, where you can see a small part of the Lake of Zurich.More

We go at least once a year to the Bürgli for an Entrecote Cafe du Paris. It never lets us down. Just excellent. The staff is friendly and brings as much of freshly made fries as one can stomach. Great place.

You enter and you instantly feel welcomed by the very friendly staff. We went once in summer and enjoyed the beautiful terrace and second time yesterday, 25th of December. The staff is really very attentive and the food is fantastic. The staff also know their...wines very well. We can highly recommend their house specialty, the entrecôte café de Paris.More

Warm and friendly welcome. Beautiful terrace overlooking Rote Fabrik and lake Zurich. Their signature dish "Entrecote Cafe de Paris" is lovely, just like everything else on their menu. Attentive and friendly staff. However, quite pricey. Parking is limited, so better come by public transport.

Lovely terrace ensconced in greenery and a distant but very ambient view of the lake. Felt like a “locals” hideout (in a good way). Perfect steak / food.

A very lovely location overlooking the lake with possibility to dine in the garden.friendly staff. Menu with limited choices we tried the entrecôte with French fries (a Swiss knockoff version of the acclaimed Parisian classic) very good meat though too much herb butter sauce in...the pan. Good Swiss wines and homemade desserts well executed. Maybe overpriced like all Zürich......More

Went there for an early summer Saturday dinner- beautiful view of the lake and non-pretentious dishes. Very friendly staff and one could see that the crew has put a lot of effort in creating the dishes. Would definitely go back again for the summer season!

This restaurant is offering a very limited menu. However, the quality of the food is outstanding and the service very diligent and friendly. Everyone I spoke to (incl myself) loved the Entrecôte with French Fries.
