We were very disappointed by this tapas bar. The prices are too high and the quality of food very poor. We paid 50CHF for 2 glasses of wine (very little quantity of wine in the glass) and one plate of cheese and ham. The plate was made of old rocket salad, 3 tiny pieces of cheese, few slices of salami, chorizo and ham. The quality was so poor that we didn't manage to finish the plate, even if the quantity was very little. If I pay 30CHF for few tiny slices of cheese and ham, I expect very good quality, specially in the country of cheese! The service wasn't good neither and cherry on the cake, there was a very strong smell of fried food because kitchens didn't have a proper ventilation. When we left, all our clothes were smelling after fried food. Overall, very bad experience, we can find so much better in Zurich!

We received a warm welcome and were recommended some delicious Swiss Pinot Noir. Tapas and simple meals are available. The tapas in particular looked good value. The atmosphere is both warm and stylish. A great after work spot.

Comming there to drink a good wine. The sweet white "Muscat de Beaumes de Venise " was good, normal for such a price. The red Bordeaux 2005 was like "dead" a scandal for this price. Much "blabla" on the price list. No reaction from the barman after telling him, no offer to taste another one. We can understand that a bottle has a problem but also expecting a more professional behaviour.
Shure we will not come again.

...because they have no interest in serving good food. My meal was reheated. The bottle of cola was nice. The wine prices are high, even for Zurich. Bit of a tourist trap. Only positive is the location. And the fact they let me off from paying the bill There isn't anything else I can say to make this review 300 characters long

I visited several times over the new year period and enjoyed them all. The service was excellent each time whether it was just for a G&T and some nibbles or when I had dinner here, good wine list at a reasonable price and more locals than tourists,
