We people watched for awhile interesting street... More

Brasserie Lipp is a classic restaurant serving high quality shellfish and other fish and some meat dishes. It is an elegant room with waiters who are efficient and polished. It is by no means cheap, but Zurich prices are high. A good alternative to the many Italian restaurants.

Even though it's summer time and it was quite warm the day we went there, my husband and I treated ourselves to a lunch at Brasserie Lipp. As always, the card is great and the service too. They offer seasonal recommendations that are really delicious, and they always serve you and check up on your meal experience with a smile.... More

We had dinner at Lipp's - fish, lamb, shrimps on pasta. All perfectly well done, attentive service, posh environment. Great dinner! Only setback is the price for non-Swiss, and for people used to similar high standards (e.g. in Austria) for less money. Still, overall a recommendable place.

Reading all the reviews i expected to be paying a premium for above average food. I was wrong. The fish stew was excellent, the mussels simply awesome. Service was also good (i believed they stepped up the standards) All in all, we had a great meal. Prices were actually reasonable! Kudos to Wunderlin and crew for a culinary experience beyond...

This place was just a short walk from our hotel in Old Zurich. It was bustling with activity - usually a good sign for a restaurant. The menu had an excellent variety and it was hard to choose. Food was fresh and expertly prepared. Not a place for a quiet romantic lunch as the eating area is large and the... More

For our first day in Zurich, our hotel suggested Brasserie Lipp. Much cleaner and friendlier than the Paris location. Don't miss the Jules Verne Bar on the 11th floor for a cocktail and great view of the city.

This was a return visit for us, and the first time in summer, so eating outside in the warmth of a summer evening was special. Our waiter was great at recommending dishes and explaining the menu and service was efficient and attentive but not rushed. Five of us had totally different starters, mains and deserts and none of us could... More

I was there to eat lunch..
