Description: The kitchen's new philosophy is centred around sustainable products and their origins in forest, field and river – meals with a story to tell and to enjoy. Guests experience a feeling of nature and Swiss authenticity. “I wish to redefine how people eat. I want to instill in my guests a newfound appreciation for where their food comes from”. Frank Widmer, kitchen director at Park Hyatt Zurich, created the new concept for restaurant parkhuus. The centerpiece of the new philosophy is the origin of the products that are found on the plates later: “We can only truly know where our food comes from by securing it directly from source. For us that means either personally hunting and growing our own vegetables and herbs or doing so, via our handpicked selection of partners”, says Frank Widmer, “we hunt, we fish and we forage, through forest, field and lake in order to provide a complete food experience.”

Set in an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere a few minutes walk from Lake Zurich. The food was excellent with top quality ingredients which were perfectly cooked and nicely presented. I had the Scallops for starters and the Bison file for main. Fantastic! So while the food and atmosphere were great, the single most rememberable experience was the service. The level of attention, friendliness and timeliness sets a new high score. Without doubt the best service I have experienced dining out in Zurich for the last 10 years.

I am a meat lover and truly appreciate good food. Parkhuus served one of the best steaks I have ever had. It was so good that it didn't require any of the sides or the sauces to make it work.

The ribye was tender juicy and just right. The wine selection was good and so was the outside seating area, my wife enjoyed the tenderloin with fresh and crisp vegetables.

Definitely on my top priority for the next visit to Zurich

Select fish or meat, and side dishes, all extra, making it a CHF 60 to 80 dish, all perfectly cooked, but not triggering any wow feelings. I know it follows a concept - Manhattan knows some similar places - but I except more rafinesse from a five star hotel cuisine. very nice desserts. Wonderful staff, by all means!

My partner and I went to have dinner to the Parkhuus and we definitely had a very nice time. The service at the restaurant was flawless, very attentive. We both order some starters and some main dishes. Starters were absolutely fantastic. I had 6 oysters and my partner had a bison tortellini. As main dishes I had a grilled bison sirloin mart ated with maple syrup and mustard, absolutely delicious! My partner had lamb cooked with herbs that also was perfect. At the Parkhuss they have this very interesting concept of serving the side dishes in the middle of the table so you can share them. We ordered some delicious French fries and bell peppers. We enjoyed all this together with an Argentinian malbec glass of red wine. As desserts we both had cherry merengue nest together with a chocolate brownie and white chocolate sauce.
The price is a bit high but it's definetly worth it for a special occasion.
