This is really a hidden gem. What an excellent gourmet dinner and superb wines. And the menu card only 10 courses ( starters and main). If you are near to Zurich, try to get in. It's a small restaurant but the best dinner we had for a long time. And the service is outstanding. We were invited and would never... More

The Hirschberg is a hidden gem near the Old Town of Zurich. If you don't know about it you would walk right by. Well worth the visit. The food is excellent, mostly Italian. Great wines and excellent service. Very cozy ambience. They even have a hotel room above the restaurant in case you are looking for a special place to... More

Went here after checking TripAdvisor "near me now" and let me say, we were glad that we did! The food and service could not have been better - the restaurant is on the expensive side but what good restaurant in Zurich isn't? The menu is small (and not particularly vegetarian friendly) but the quality and quantity of the food were... More

You feel like home and you get served very well with fantastic food and wine. Everything is prepared fresh and tastes great. It is easy to spend a whole evening here. The only thing you have to ensure is that you don't need to drive a car afterwards. The wine is so good - you will not be allowed to... More

The menu is small: Five starters and five main courses. But there are masters at work, not only in the kitchen, but also - his wife - front of the house. Every course is fresh market cuisine. The wine list is one of the most innovative ones for Italian wines in Zurich. It's not a restaurant for a fast grab.... More

This is quite simply a great restaurant, the food is always good and the service an absolute pleasure, we've been a few times, it's not easy to get a table, but if one try's spontaneously it sometimes works. The menu is small but perfect, I'm always suspicious of huge menus anyway and this place confirms it, small but excellent. The... More

What can I say? Excellent food, nice deco, unbelievable wine selection. Love the way they hand-write the menu.

A real insiders' tip, a small jewel well hidden behind an unspectacular and not very attractive entrance. The food is just fantastic and the service very attentive. That's the perfect place to let the chef guide you through a wonderful culinary journey and rediscover old savours. One of my favorite in Zurich for special occasions or to surprise friends.

You wouldn't expect anything nice behind these doors at Seilergraben but the restaurant is cute and intimate. A very cozy place. The service is professional also if a bit on the pushy side. But the excellent food makes up for everything! Starters as well as main courses were delicious and the sizes good. The ingredients are fresh and the presentation... More
