I was visiting this restaurant for lunch. And it was just perfect. Friendly stuff from the beginning. A daily special was recommended which I didn't took because I had something else in mind. But it looked also very good as my neighbor had it. I took the famous slow cooked veal, fantastic. I also like this restaurant because the food... More

Excellent wine, comfy dinning environment, great cooking. We were surprised by the wine was really good. All you need is a deeper pocket.

This restaurant is beyond excellent. The Head Chef, René Hofer advises you on the specials. And what specials they are. From start to finish, scallops thru slow cooked veal and finishing with cheese, to the sumptuous wines on offer, we walked out of here absolutely sated. Our waitress, Cinem, only added to a wonderful evening Go here. You will not... More

This is a special restaurant serving special spins on familiar dishes. The wait staff and Chef are extremely friendly and the cuisine shows great creativity. Food prices are so ridiculously high in Zurich that this should be considered excellent value

Located in the old-town, this restaurant is popular both with locals and tourists. It's definitely one of the few restaurants in the old town that serve dishes on a high skill level. In my view, it's quite a bit overpriced for a regular dinner. I'd recommend it for special occasions though.

This is an outstanding restaurant with great service, wine and food. My husband's foie gras might have been some of the best he has ever tasted and my goat cheese with couscous appetizer was simply delicious. Our main meals were dishes of veal prepared Zurich style with a superb cream sauce and delicate mushrooms with a side of tasty potatoes... More

My wife and I visited this resturant for dinner. The food is exceptionally good and the chief moving around the tables and looking after the customers. You feel the plates are made with love and passion. The atmosphere is romantic. It is a cosy place. I started with sired tuna and octopus carpaccio (highly recommend ) followed by veal and... More

Service was very good, the chef came personally to take our order and to explain some parts of the menu to us which we didn't understand. Ambience was great, an outdoor but enclosed candlelit dining area, very romantic. Unfortunately the signature veal which we came here for was sold out (we arrived at approximately 8.30pm), apparently it has to be... More
