Quality of food was at lhe level of French fine dinning, little backyard where seated was just ambient and cossy but the biggest surprise was the staff! - friendly and professional, both combined in a nice way. Deffinitelly my recommendation for a team dinner after a busy working day!

We didn't know it's for fine dining and we're just looking for a quick dinner before our flights. Some servers (the more senior ones) looked quite disapproving when we didn't order a full menu. We dined at a place which felt like a backyard, which didn't feel elegant or classy anyway. Expensive price for such a small portions. Tasted ok... More

Located in a small street in old Zurich minutes way from the Bahnhofstrasse and the Paradeplatz, the Lindenhofkeller offers a courtyard, innovative dishes, and attentive service.

Even the walk to this lovely restaurant is special. There are a few ways to approach it, however none of them by car, so a short stroll through the old town is the only way to the 14th century building that houses the restaurant. The food is exquisite and never fails to live up to expectations. This is also the... More

The owner himself is very attentive to his patrons and assures a pleasant dinner with excellently prepared food. From appetizer, to main course and then dessert as well as the by-the-glass wine selection we were extremely well satisfied.

Great venue, great menu, friendly service, great wine list. what else can you possibly want? Food was tasty, well seasoned, beautifully presented, perfect portion sizes. And not to forget: the friandises at the end, awesome.

First of all, MAKE A RESERVATION! It's a must for this place. We went on a weeknight without a reservation, and was initially rejected by the wait staff much to our dismal as we had braved the cold in our inadequate clothing and walked pretty far to get there. Out came the head chef (and possibly owner? he seems to... More

This restaurant has probably the best food and most attentive staff I have seen in Zurich. I was pleased to find that they have a variety of types of food on the menu (I particularly enjoyed Cevice). The food was amazing, flavored and carefully cooked. The staff was very attentive and the cook himself came to greet us at our... More

This restaurant was incredible! The chef personally welcomed each guest and discussed the specials. The food was absolutely delicious, and although a bit pricey, worth every cent! Anyone visiting Zurich MUST try it!
