Sat there with a friend after we saw the good reviews. At first we we're sitting at the table for long 15 minutes before we were approached by a waiter. The dishes arrived quite fast, but: My friend ordered a green salad and received a bowl with few leaves of lettuce and very basic dressing - not what you would... More

Went there for dinner and sat outside. Ordered the zurich traditional beef w/ mushroom, it was great. The beef succulent, tender and juicy. The same applied for my wife's tenderloin order with crystal salt. The host was communicative and helpful. Overall highly recommended

I must dine at this restaurant whenever I am in Zurich. Very delicious food, I love mostly the ricotta ravioli and Viennese style chicken which just melts in your mouth! Last time I tried the truffle pasta which was very fresh. You get a fine dine experience, menu is appealing!

Located in the old city, Kindli is a "classic" venue. Professional service and an overall good quality kitchen in a smart/casual setting. Prices are on the high side but in Zurich is pretty normal (a three courses dinner with a glass of wine for 100 CHF).

If you come here more often, the restaurant feels like your personal dinning room. The owners know how to give comfort to their guests and they are proud to serve local dishes with a very good wine.

Truffle pasta was excellent. The restaurant is well worth visiting for evening meals. Breakfast was wonderful and we would recommend this hotel. The staff are very attentive and it offers a friendly atmosphere.

Everything was great at this place. I had a table inside the saloon, and the waiter there was amazingly efficient and friendly. The classic atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice, and the food was fantastic. I risk saying that it was the best meal I had in Switzerland. You gotta order the famous "Zurich style" veal. The prices were... More

I loved the location of this restaurant in the old town of Zurich. Give yourself time to walk around first to visit some of the shops. We ate on a Saturday night and most stores close at 5p.m.
