I am a fan of this small but very nice restaurant. The dishes are good and they have a nice selection. It's a bit a pitty that they don't have a nicer entry because the outside dosn't do justice to the inside.

Sort of Swiss cuisine meets nuova cucina Italiana. Creative, well prepared. Very helpful staff. Located on a quiet, largely residential street.

I've been there twice - each time I made an online reservation - each time it didn't work out, despite the re-confirmations of the chef. Luckily we still got a table but the excuse was lame and they were not really making an effort to apologize in the first place. The very young waitress was pretty, but seemed to be... More

I invited my wife for birthday and it was absolutely worth it. We had a wonderful, creative vegetarian dinner. From starter to cheese selection, food quality and preparation were excellent, inspired by Italian kitchen. Also the recommended wines were delicious and very characteristic. Interior, atmosphere and service are simple, maybe a bit less fancy than one would expect for a... More

We go there regularly and enjoy the friendly and easy-going atmosphere. I went there already with all kinds of different people, and somehow it was always matching. The choice is relatively small, but good.

Description
Natural enjoyment without a guilty conscience is the motto of the Tüfi restaurant in Zürich. In this regional kitchen, only the best ingredients from a number of local organic farms are used. The meat that is used comes only from animals specifically reared in the local environs. All fish are wild and caught fresh from the waters in the local surrounding area. The restaurant has the conviction to serve only seasonal produce. It is no surprise that the Tüfi in Zürich has been awarded the ?Label Goût Mieux? (the best taste accolade). You can be truly satisfied with the quality of food served at the Tüfi. For example, white fish fillet from the lake in Zürich, fried in butter, Cordon Bleu from organic piglet with Valais Alps mountain cheese, or homemade chocolate cake.
