“Go for the people watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

While we enjoyed our meal here the real fun was people watching from our table facing the Langestrasse! Across the road is a supermarket and small square where we saw the beautiful and not so beautiful people of the area. Okay, the food was delicious and we had not trouble with the staff. Must run hot and cold?

“Not so good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Our first experience in a Swiss restaurant - not very good at all. The Barman and Waitress were the rudest I have encounted on our trip through France, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. We are only here one night and wanted to experience good Swiss Food and atmosphere. Instead we got rude wait staff. , who really didn't want us there. I had the Tuna which was thin and way over done. The butter wasabi served with it, was frozen. My husband wanted the Snitzel with gravy on the side, was advised by the waitress of another very similar dish - and got Strogonoff!. Just avoid this restaurant, i am sure there are many better.

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2011

For Zurich, this is a reasonably priced restaurant, but still expensive for what you actually get. They offer good, traditional Swiss meals. Indoor atmosphere could be improved.

“Great local cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2011

Wonderful, heavy Swiss dishes.
They are not afraid to use butter, heavy cream, red meats.
Middling to poor service (standard Euro inattentiveness).
Cafeteria atmosphere.
Nice outdoor people viewing seating.
Limited, but interesting wine list.
Location in hooker, drug dealer 'hood.....
but seems safe.

“Loud, rustic, tasty and at fair prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2010

This place is full every night and rather loud as the guests are seated close to each other. One of their popular specialties is the ball-shaped 'Cordon Bleu' (schnitzel stuffed with cheese and ham). But my favorite is the half chicken „Bonne Femme“, served in a bowl with veggies, bacon and potatoes.
