I read the reviews and knew what I am expecting but it is more than I expected. The service is really friendly. We did not book a table but we arrived early and they tried to accommodate us. (Make sure you book the table to avoid disappointment) The food is really nice and the portion is generous. The traditional Zurich... More

I loved the charming atmosphere of the Kindli; It is located in a Boutique Hotel in the best neighborhood in Zurich. The staff treats you like a long lost friend, which I love. The food is delicious and they have the most wonderful bread sticks to have with your drinks. I know it is owned by a woman and I... More

The food is traditional Swiss food. Really good. The service is impeccable though. It's a really nice experience and I would recommend it.

This was without doubt the best meal we had in Zurich. The food was delicious. The service first-rate. There was no problems with allergies - in fact our waiter (who spoke perfect English) went out of his way to check and advise, even changing the ingredients on one of the dishes for allergy reasons. The ambience was wonderful, with the... More

Very classy and cosy restaurant. Stunning interior albeit classic. It is not cheap but service is great and food is simple and delicious, better than usual Zurich fare. It is a treat for a business lunch/dinner and also nice for a romantic dinner. The loctaion, center of old town, results in a nice stro9ll after dinner which adds to the... More

If you like veal and German style food and don't mind $52 entrees then you may like this restaurant. Our service was very good, attentive, thorough and knowledgeable of the dishes. Some of us found that while the food was well prepared it just wasn't something we loved. My scaloppine was excellent but the pasta, served separately, was cold and... More

Kindly see my other reviews dining here...I can add little by way of praise except to draw diners favouring al fresco that Kindli have set up charming outdoor facilities which obviously are popular with the public, but this option is not for me! I personally prefer the calm of their air-conditioned interior ( this facility not common in Switzerland in... More
