I know this is switzerland and everything is way more expensive here and while this place isn’t expensive compared to many other restaurants in Zurich, I still felt like the sausage was overpriced. It tasted good but I definitely don’t think a any small sausage link is close to being worth 7 franc but that’s just me.

Dear SydneyPJ,

Thank you for visiting us and for your feedback.

We have been serving typical Swiss specialities since 1963, and for many trying our original sausages is a must-do when in Zurich. Our perfectly grilled sausages are made with Swiss meat only to ensure the high quality. We also offer other meat and vegetarian dishes and a selection of local beer and wine.

We hope to be able to welcome you back and fully convince you. Perhaps, next time you may like to enjoy your meal at our restaurant upstairs that boasts a great view of the lake of Zurich.

Kind regards,
Peter and Thomas Rosenberger,
Hosts Sternen Grill

3 of us ate 8 wursts of all varieties. My favorite has always been servelat and this place has the best servelat in town.

Dear 770cemg,

Thanks for the incredible endorsement. We love it when our guests are so enthusiastic about our food.

The Sternen Grill at Bellevue is legendary for its perfectly grilled sausages, whether it is our bratwurst, servelat, schweinszwicker, salsiccia piccante, or the currywurst you won't find any better prepared than here. We use only top-grade Swiss meat and all our items are prepared fresh daily. (We do also serve more than sausages, including vegetarian dishes.)

You can either settle in the restaurant upstairs or order at the Take Away and eat on the terrace while watching the world go by. Both are open all day and every day.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Kind regards,
Peter and Thomas Rosenberger,
Hosts, Sternen Grill

Very good but you must distinguish between the first floor take away and the 2nd floor restaurant. Upstairs is good service and nice atmosphere. Take away is cheaper.
The confusion was people were queue downstairs for takeaway or sitting. We waited upstairs for 30 minutes for a table for 8 of us because it is so popular, again a great sign. If there were only a couple of us, the wait would have been much shorter.

This is a great place to come for a meal with great food at good prices, especially for Zürich prices!!
After reading the reviews on this restaurant we were unsure whether it would be suitable as there were some conflicting reviews and we didn’t know if it was going to be suitable for our mum and then my sister and brother in laws kids but decided to walk past and check it out.
The confusion was people were writing about different options here. You can get the take away/informal eat in at any of the tables downstairs or go upstairs to sit down in a proper restaurant. The long queue downstairs for takeaway or sitting at one of the tables was huge which is always a great sign. We waited upstairs for 30 minutes for a table for 8 of us because it is so popular, again a great sign. If there were only a couple of us, the wait would have been much shorter.
This was an excellent place to get some really good Würst and have a great meal with really nice open views from the upstairs restaurant and tables. Our waitress was maybe not the friendliest but most of the staff were happy and chatty and the food was great and at a fairly reasonable Zürich price.
All of us were stoked to have eaten here and it will definitely be a go to restaurant whenever I’m back in Zürich

Dear jmb4223,

Thank you! What a great review, and we get a five-star rating. We couldn't ask for more.

Sternen Grill on Bellevue is one of Zurich's "eating-out" icons that every visitor to the city must have on their bucket list. And yes, we do a take-away and a sit-down restaurant upstairs.

One thing we can assure you is that all the food is the same top-quality and grilled to perfection as always. We use only the best Swiss meat and everything is prepared freshly every day.

As we don't take reservations, you may have to wait for a table, especially if you are a large party (as you were). But we do everything we can to accommodate our guests and make sure you are looked after.

We are very pleased you enjoyed the food, ambience, and service (though apologies for the slight hiccup in the service — we shall look into it).

Looking forward to seeing you again when you are back in Zurich.

Kind regards,
Peter and Thomas Rosenberger,
Hosts, Sternen Grill

This grill was recommended to me. It’s ideally located.
The service is super efficient. The food is simple but good.
The waitress was not super top friendly though.
