“get the fish”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Very nice fish. Been here twice; the owner also has a seafood importer business I believe hence the quality/freshness of the ingredients. Get the fried octopus rings and the sea bass salad with truffles. Their dishes are usually quite simple but alway taste great.
I would give a 5 star if their dessert weren't so mediocre; and by mediocre i'm really trying to be polite. Seriously I would rather get a bowl of movenpick from the supermarket and plate it up myself...

“Excellent food, modern decor”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Set along the river it was about a 15 - 20 minute walk from the Helmhaus Hotel. Italian food with an emphasis on fish in a lovely modern setting. Nicely spaced tables, comfortable chairs, soft lighting, moderate noise. Excellent service, very knowledgeable about the wine list. Nicely paced service. Portions ample but can enjoy a 3 course meal without feeling stuffed. Wear at least business casual. Romantic. $217 Canadian including wine.

“I deserve, i guess!!!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

It is a restaurant with excellent food and service! If possible book tables overlooking the river. The dinner was delicious but the desserts are not that goodd. Prepare your credit card because it is expensive but worth it

“Seafood galore in the middle of Zurich”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

I spent a wonderful evening at this little gem beside the river right smack in the middle of Zurich. The service was excellent with enough time spent to serve and to replenish glasses. The menu is dominated by seafood and is varied enough for the most fussiest of eaters. The wine list was navigated with trust of our excellent waiter as being Melbourne based there were many treasures listed that we had not heard of. Do yourself a favour and book when next in Zurich.
