I've been to the Nachtigall a couple of times and I usually order the Kalbsschnitzel which has always been great (and huuuge).

However, this time I wanted to try something else and ordered kangaroo on the "hot stone". So far, I have always been pleased by the food served at the Nachtigall but I was very disappointed by how the meat was presented (see photo). The filet had been cut in such way that one could not determine if it had been one piece of meat to begin with. I complained and the waitress told me that they cut all the meat differently in order to distinguish the various meats. In my opinion, not the best system.

Neverheless, the Nachtigall serves solid, down to earth food in a very casual atmosphere. If you are in the mood for a relaxed dinner and don't want to spend too much, you should definitely visit the Nachtigall!

The Nachtigall is a nice restaurant for the meat.. in fact the speciality in here is the meat that on the hot stone. You get raw meat on a plate, and the bring you a hot stone, so that you can cook the meat on your own hot stone. Of course not too long!
It’s served with country potatoes and there are 3 different dips/sauces.
The service is not so “posh”, but it’s ok.
The restaurant and the atmosphere are nothing special. The prices for being in Zurich are definitely cheap!!
The place is close to tram stop “Stauffacher” (Tram 2, 3, 8, 9, 14).
