“Best dinner the whole trip”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Simply the best dinner in two weeks of traveling around Europe. The food was great, the waiter made the whole experience even better. We were tired from traveling nine hours from Berlin and trying to find someplace to get gifts. Found this nice, setback, restaurant. One of the "rules" of the trip was to try local food every stop and this place did not disappoint. The waiter recommended both food and a beer for me to try. They were both excellent. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The food is enough to make the restaurant five stars, the waiter just made everything perfect.

“A bit of character”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Small and busy place well located close to be very different from the financial district. As close to good value as any restaurant in Switzerland is ever going to get.

“Great food and fantastic service”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

With one rain day to spend with my daughter in Zurich, we wanted an early dinner. The place looked welcoming and already nearly full by 5:30 PM. Without reservations, we got a small half table if we promised to be done before 8 PM - no problem for us. Once inside, we experienced the friendliest service of all the restaurants we visited during our 2 week stay in EU. The food was fantastic, the server listened well (and his English was good) to my wine wish and picked the perfect Swiss Riesling with our meal. We got a hand shake for goodbye (was it the tip or just super nice waiter?) and we were out few minutes before eight.

“Old world charm and good food”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I arrived for a late lunch and had the special of the day, pork schnitzel with fries, an arugula salad and ice cream for dessert. The service was attentive and the food prepared and presented nicely. A good place for a meal and a drink.
