Had the opportunity to test this 100% vegan place and I've been amazed by the variety and quality of the food. I tried several buffet items and they were all tasty, fresh and well seasoned. Good place!

My mother in law’s birthday dinner gathering. She would like to go to Terrace but they don’t accept reservation, so we just went to this branch instead. It’s still fine end up. Food is nice as usual and we had a nice evening.

Switzerland is very expensive so it was good to find a place that has really good healthy food and less pricey that the average restaurant in Zurich. Lots of vegan/veggies options and varied flavours. They do the food by weight so you pile it on...More

Average buffet, rather expensive compared to the offer, the kitchen lacks originality and creativity especially after having been there more than once.

When entering I was worried about the size of the restaurant but it was pretty quiet although packed. Food is good, service friendly. As usual in ZRH it’s expensive but reasonable compared to other places.

I’ve eaten at this restaurant many times and it is always excellent. You can choose table service or the buffet which features dozens of creative vegetarian dishes. Hiltl is very popular and usually crowded.
