This Restaurant belongs to the Plaza Hotel on Central, in front of the railway terminal. It s open on Sundays not like other more interesting places in the immediate surrounding. The food is well cooked and the friendly staff pays attention - though they seem not too much interested in wine matters. The menu choice is limited to steakhouse style which is Ok since it is fine tender meat. However, the place is weirdly decorated, in a way that only the Swiss understand: overloaded with uncomfortable old fashioned phony junk furniture: NOT fashionable, even considering them proud national spirit. The piano player singing in the bar upstairs is doing some nice standards (it may seem loud at times though) except for the drum-box part.
The prices are quite a "gun shot" like they say in France...

This was a good way to start our night. Great filet and great atmosphere. We had a party of five and everyone enjoyed it, but we did find out the rock walls were fake which was disappointing. The service was a bit slow, but we are American and require lots of attention. Definitely recommend to others while it was pricey.

This is mainly a steak restaurant in the basement of a central Zurich hotel. The decor and ambiance were excellent and the the place looked quite plush. We ordered two steaks (43 Swiss Francs each) and a bottle of house wine (cheapest on the menu at 46 francs). Switzerland is so outrageously expensive that this is all we were prepared to pay for!
Steaks are served with precursor of a bowl of lettuce with nuts and dressing of your choice - there were three - and it was better than it sounds!. The steaks came with a sauce (probably bernaise) and cut into slices, in a rather French style. They were placed over a candle arrangement which kept them warm and you helped yourself when required. There were also chips (English term) or French fries (American) in apparently unlimited quantities. There were no other vegetables offered in the basic menu.
The steak was delicious and the wine tasted good to my albeit limited palate. My wife thought the chips were mediocre and I, too, felt they could have been better. The service was extremely good and attentive without being in any way overbearing. It was a very good meal, well cooked and well served although difficult to rate in terms of value for money because Switerland is so very expensive. The "Gnomes of Zurich" (well known quote from a former British politician) must earn a lot of money!
