Ideally located in the middle of the old town of Zürich, this restaurant has a very nice terrasse located in the middle of the building perfect for eating something light without being disturb. Staff is very competent and always friendly.

We really enjoyed our visit in the Widder Restaurant. The service staff was exceptional, especially Mr. Willi, he made this evening unforgettable. Thank you! The food is as perfect as the service, we can recommend it a thousand times! Just go there you won't regret it! ...and make sure to visit the bar also! ;)

Overall nice service but truth to be told, there is still much room for improvement. Lack in some depth, somehow... Food wise, satisfied; especially the pigeon dish. Absolute execution in taste and cooked perfectly medium rare. Would prefer some pro staff attending to our table instead of a 20 yo apprentice, he did a good job BUT! Do not blow... More

Walking up Rennweg with an appetite around 2 in the afternoon, this was the perfect place to stop for a bite. The staff was nice enough to give us menus in English (I speak German but my friend does not) and we happily ordered the Kalbsbratwurst and another wurst dish. Side order of Spaetzle and Roesti. To start they brought... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Dishes are moderate in size so even if you are a small eater select a few different things. They each are well balanced compositions. Very nice asian fusion touches. The right place for an intimate dinner provided you like excellent food.

The Widder is a charming hotel with an excellent staff who truly wish to satisfy every need. It is in a great location in central Zurich. The rooms are very large and surprisingly modern with all amenities that one could think of. It was a very comfortable stay. Warning: it is very expensive.

Thank Dennis D
