Description: Uber 75 Jahre ist es her, dass Ernst Manz im "Zunftsali" des Hotel St. Gotthard die Hummerbar ins Leben gerufen und damit eine perfekte Buhne fur prominente Leute wie Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Arnold Schwarzenegger und Gunther Sachs geschaffen hat. Die Hummer & Austernbar ist eines der fuhrenden Restaurants an der Bahnhofstrasse Zurich und eine sehr bekannte und beliebte Institution in kulinarischen Kreisen. Die Hummerbar wurde 1935 eroffnet und ist sehr traditionell und doch innovativ in der Zubereitung von Hummern, Austern und Meeresfruchten aller Art. Bis heute hat das Gourmet Restaurant in Zurich die Originaldekoration bewahrt. Fotos von beruhmten Filmstars und Politikern, welche bereits Gaste waren, hangen an den Wanden. Die Hummerbar bietet klassische franzosische Gourmet Kuche an, kombiniert mit einem mediterranen Akzent. Sie konnen in einem eleganten Ambiente frische Hummer oder Austern geniessen und werden stets mit abwechslungsreichen und innovativen Gerichten uberrascht.

“Sparagus season”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a great lunch with sparagus soup and warm white and green sparagus with new potatoes. Sitting outside on one of the first warm days this spring we really enjoyed the delicious food and the professional and friendly service. Recommended.

“First class service and even better food”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

That's the place to be for a business lunch or other special occasions. I just had a wonderful "filet de boeuf" - it was a dream.

“Great service, fine food”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

We had a business dinner at the restaurant and the atmosphere was great! The waiters were always around, without being indiscreet, ready to fill our glasses and bring us whatever we wanted. Although the prices were high, we enjoyed luxury, along with excellent food. We recommend it, if you wish for a special-occasion dinner
