Good quality sausages, free bread to go with. Friendly chef but unkind waiter, did not ask for his name. I mistakenly took a Salad bowl from the fridge, thought I had to grab and pay at the cashier. The waiter was so rude, he told me to put it back even I was so ready to pay so I did put it back and left the restaurant.

Dear Aphiradee,

Thank you for giving the Sternen Grill five stars. We are sorry there was some confusion around your order, and we have discussed the matter among the team. The salads are a separate item on the menu and need to be ordered separately. We hope you will return when you are back in Zurich.

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

Good quality price ratio for this “grill” located not far from the city center. The building itself is very nice and has LOTS of space inside (and some tables outside as well). They serve very good Bratwurst with an amazing “Kartoffelnsalad” (potatoes salad). Their mustard is the SPICIEST I’ve ever tried, though very good and tasty. Two Bratwurst with bread, two salads and two ice tea for 36 CHF in Zurich is definitely cheap, so I would totally recommend this place.

Dear Lalla9017,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review.

We are glad to read you found Sternen Grill and our offering to your liking. We take pride in serving probably the most famous Bratwurst in Zurich. Apart from grilled sausages, we offer homemade potato salad, roast chicken, and other meat and vegetarian dishes.

You can order your meal as a Take-Away or take a seat in our restaurant upstairs that boasts a beautiful view of Bellevue and the lake. Please visit us again when you are in Zurich.

Kind regards,
Peter and Thomas Rosenberger,
Hosts Sternen Grill

Our hotel suggested lunch at this iconic Swiss takeaway and it didn’t disappoint. It was really delicious and a great taste of true Swiss food. We went around 2 pm so there was no line but when we walked passed at 5:30 pm the line went down the block.

Dear MarcyB499,

Thanks for the great review and the five stars.
Sternen Grill is, indeed, an iconic eatery in Zurich, and has been since we started out in 1963. And, yes, we are popular, so there are times when the lines for our perfectly grilled sausages and spicy mustard can get long.

But our friendly and extremely efficient professional staff will make sure you never have to wait too long. The Grill on Bellevue also has a restaurant upstairs so you can relax and order at your leisure. Downstairs is the Take Away (there is also a Take Away at Oerlikon and at Zurich Airport) where you order and can hang-out on the terrace.
We hope to see back again soon.

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

Upstairs at Sternen Grill, late on a Friday evening, is a welcome dining experience. The atmosphere is cozy, there are tables available, the staff is very welcoming and the service very good.

Dear LarbraG,

Thanks for the five-stars and the great recommendation. The Sternen Grill at Bellevue is legendary for its perfectly grilled sausages. You can either settle in upstairs in the restaurant or eat from the Take Away on the terrace while watching the world go by. Both are open all day and every day.

Thanks for mentioning the great service. Our team like to make guests feel relaxed and welcome. We hope you will be back again soon.

Kind regards,

Downstairs it is just stand in line and find a table. Upstairs basically the same menu but with table service. I come here every time I am in Zurich. Lots of locals as well.

Dear Peter S,

Thanks for your loyalty. We love it when our customers keep coming back for more because it means we continue to get it right.

Namely, serving perfectly grilled sausage made from the finest Swiss meat with our great spicy mustard. The Sternen Grill in Bellevue has a more formal restaurant upstairs with a Take Away at street level. We also have a Take Away at Oerlikon and Zurich Airport.

Looking forward to seeing you back again soon.

Kind regards,
