“Best wienerschnitzel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

Lovely interior, with warm woodwork and soaring stained glass windows. Service was disappointing. We wanted to know what vegetables were served with a dish, and the waitress couldn't be bothered to find out. Given that there were very few guests, she seemed always too busy to stop by our table. But when the meals were served, we learned that the real star of the evening was the wienerschnitzel; it was the best that any of us had tasted ever, and we order wienerschnitzel whenever we can. So delicate and crispy! And the portion was large. But all the other food was just average. Like all Zurich restaurants, it is expensive for anyone who is not a local resident, with main courses about 40 chf.

“Almost Italian! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

Located in the Zurich old town this place is good for drink and eat out. We always go there in the summer to sit outside and every time it has been a pleasure experience. Sometimes the chef can be very creative to put melon and lamb curry together but overall it is good quality of food. Definitely a place to chill in the summer.

“Cosy but contemporary atmosphere in the old town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

This place is in a side street in the Niederdorf. It has a modern atmosphere with high ceilings and nice wooden framed windows. We had Risotto and Lamb. The Risotto was al dente with a good variety of mushrooms. The lamb was OK, but for someone who does not like it on the rare side it would have not been appreciated. The wine selection was good. Our service very attentive and filled our glass right on time. All in all we had a very good experience and can recommend this place.
