We stayed at the Central Plaza so it was only right to dine-in at the King's Cave. There food was delicious. The occasion was my wife's birthday and she was really impressed. The staff took really good care of us.

The Cave is in the basement of the Central, it's basically a wine cellar plus restaurant, nicely decorated. The cloth napkins come tucked inside a golden crown, and the waiters do make you feel like royalty. Since we had been traveling in Switzerland for a few weeks, I was trying to cut back on meat dishes that particular evening, which... More

Great restaurant at the Central Hotel, you go downstairs and you feel you enter a middle age tavern! Great meat. I got a Swiss sirloin with two huge shrimps, it seems not to combine, but it was perfect! And service is very good to! I really recommend the place!

This restaurant is hidden away in the basement of the Central Hotel. The atmosphere is very nice, the service attentive and the food very well prepared. They are rightfully praised for their herb butter topic.

Went to this restaurant for dinner with two colleagues during a business trip. Unique (sometimes tacky but fun) interior, friendly service and good food. The steak is good but not amazing, and the sides a bit limited.

Top notch food, nice and affordable for such an expensive place as Zurich is, nothing over the top as per other restaurants. The steak could of been cut with a butter knife and the chips kept coming until you could eat no more!

As the name of the restaurant, it is in basement of Central hotel. Although it is kind of a cosy restaurant to me, I love the exclusive atmosphere and interior decoration. Luckily we were sitting right underneath the piano bar above therefore we could enjoy live music add-on to our fine dining. The steak is the best. I had Swiss... More

King's Cave is restaurant inside the Central Plaza Hotel close to the Central Station in Zurich. Although it is in the basement (the name is kind of a giveaway) the atmosphere is above average. King’s Cave is definitely designed for meat lovers and they do serve a good steak. They have Argentinian, Irish and Swiss meat on the menu. Although... More
