Don't mind the German service which has a tendency to be too stiff.
Don't mind the location where at night you gonna be the the only one on the street although this is in the heart of Zurich.
Just enjoy the great food, the great meat that they offer... and reserve ahead! And prefer lunch :)

We had a very nice lunch here. For sure we chose beef (Entrecôte) - as the meat gets imported from Argentina directly. As expected - the quality was amazing (yet the size of the meat portions (still 250g!! - thus above average for Switzerland) not comparable to Argentina :) .. with Cabaña Las Lilas' 800g baby beef portions).
The cattle is bred on Dieter Meier's organic farm. The atmosphere of the restaurant is wonderful and very authentic. Dieter Meier himself visits his restaurant regularly and we had the chance to say hello!
Many thanks for the nice experience.
I will definitely come back.
Suerte!

Carnivores of all creeds: this is your place
Steak or tartare : your choice of preparation and sauces. Excellent meat and accompaniements.
Simple and no changes.
Great Argentinian wines including from the owner's property:Puro
Always full at lunch time (located in one of the big bank's buildings...) small but warm.
Service can be a bit inattentive and we wish there would be more variety, however on your protein day, this is it.
This is Zurich, dead center, therefore pricey and the portions are not very generous, your roastbeef has 3-4 very thin slices only.

I don't know how many times I have now been eating in the Restaurant Bearengasse. But, defenitely not to many times as I'm still enjoy the food, vine, ambiance and service a lot!

It's a fantastic place in the heart of Zurich and the meat and vine produced by Dieter Meier's own Ojo de Agua farm in Argentina is just from exceptional quality!

If you have not enjoyed beef you have missed something from Zurich :-)

We had a 7.30pm reservation for dinner. When we got there, we were advised that our table was not ready and we should have a drink at the bar. Finally at 7.50pm, we were taken to our table with no explanation of what caused the delay. We were puzzled as the restaurant was 1/3 full?...

We found the front of house gentleman to be very aloof and rude. 8.10pm and our order was finally taken. We had to ask for some bread as we were famished. When the food did arrive, it was fabulous. We had the Barengasse Salad followed by the entrecôte. The entrecôte au gratin with cafe de Paris sauce is the best we have ever had and we are a very well travelled couple.

Hmmm...would we recommend this restaurant? If you can put up with sub-standard service, go there and enjoy a great meal but for us, service is a major part of enjoying a nice, pricey night out.
