“Great food, nice garden”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

The restaurant offers excellent food with some local specialties. If the weather allows, they open their garden which has a "Biergarten" atmosphere. The staff is young, fast and friendly. This restaurant is one of our favourite places and we have never been disappointed.

“The place to meet”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Next to our home and office we like to stay in the restaurant or - lets hope summer will come soon - in the garden of the "Alten Löwen". With a crowd of Friends in a wild evening, with partners in a delicate business-lunch or silmpy with my wife to enjoy the time to leaving off work or to meet neighbours; for all occasions here we find the proper atmosphere!

“Excellent food & wine in casual atmosphere”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

This is a casual atmosphere neighborhood restaurant with food and wine from one of Zurich's best kitchens. Formerly the chef of the Gault Millau Grand Table-rated restaurant Neubad in St. Gallen, Robert Burri now serves more traditional-style dished - cooked at outstanding level. I go there with friends to enjoy the Tavolata dinner, the always excellent wines, the nice service, and the time to talk and relax.

“A well hidden secret in Zurich”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Zum Alten Loewen is a so called "gehein Tipp" (a well hidden secret) in Zurich. The food is excellent and the prices are OK for Zurich. Maria and Röbi (the owner of the place) have a passion for what they are doing in the kitchen and in the restaurant. In the summer the outside terrace under the platens is so relaxing that you may find yourself there very late drinking a nice wine from the excellent winelist or a special grappa. I love the place. I will love it to.
