Despite the change of chef. This restaurant totally deserves the Michelin and Gaut&Millaut rating. The staff was extremely friendly and discrete. The atmosphere is contemporary and stylish

The chef cook, Mr. Lindner, sadly soon is leaving restaurant, thus we went again for a last time (under the old cooking regime). Fantastic food including wonderful adaptions for vegetarians, a very well suited selection of wines for the wine accompaniment and several amuse-bouches and desserts.

We will miss Mr. Lindner's delicious combinations and look forward to the new head chef coming in in late September.

If you enjoy innovative combinations of produce, meats, fish and really any kind of foods (imagine mustard icecreams and the likes), great wines and impeccable service, make sure to stop by before September 15, 2012!

Having eaten in a large number of excellent restaurants,  it is rare   for us to come across a restaurant that is  refreshingly amazing .

We arrived in Zurich, which is surprisingly not noted for great restaurants ( one of its famous restaurants is more famous  for its art than culinary achievement)  We consulted our Michelin guide and picked the latest restaurant which has recently been upgraded by Michelin from 1 to 2 stars. Of course we expected to have an excellent meal.

The taxi stopped  outside an undistinguished building in an ordinary street and we walked into a restaurant that could not win many accolades for esthetics. We were mildly disappointed. We were immediately seated and presented with a menu with a title "Symphone of the senses"  which required an explanation because of the manner you are required to choose your dishes.

Our whole mood was transformed when we received the first bouche amuse. We could not stop praising the chef to the waiters after each serving. It resulted in the chef coming out to acknowledge us in person. We explained that in our opinion it was  the equal  of the best restaurants in Switzerland and that having eaten in them, we humbly pleaded some knowledge of what we were saying.

This is not a romantic venue, it is probably aimed at the large banking fraternity of Zurich,  however it serves some of the most delicate, delicious and inventive food we have tasted anywhere. It reminded us of the Duomo restaurant in Alba Italy which I reviewed last year.
