Most of the staff are friendly, but a few are not. Breakfast buffet is standard at best, nothing great.

You do get authentic Swiss food here and the surprise also comes in the way it's presented. The salads are good and the Gsnatzlettes done Zurich style are good value. This is actually among the more reasonably priced restaurants in Zurich where a 3 course meal will cost about SF$24, on weekdays. It will be $3 cheaper for a vegetarian... More

we were here for breakfast buffet for one day. Food was good. We sat by the glass window overlooking the road outside, which was very relaxing.

The food here is appalling, absolutely horrific and it is incredibly expensive. A plate of rosti with (frozen) peas and cream sauce, chicken wings +potato wedges and 2 (small) glasses of red wine cost €60!! AVOID this place!!

Managed to get seated on NYE and the garlic bread was impressive in portion and presentation. The food itself was ok and lots of it, but fairly basic in options. We were expecting expensive and it is - we did wonder if we could have got a better range if we'd wandered further. That said, it did the job on... More

As this restaurant is located in the hotel we stayed at we were able to enjoy it several times. My wife loved the roasted vegetables (Roasties) that they make here. The dinner experience is intimate and romantic. Every dish we had was excellent. The service was personal and excellent! Even though there was a bachelorette party one night we were... More
