Family event. Party of 7. If one likes Swiss Cuisine this is the place to go to. My godson found the Zürich Geschnetzeltes (chopped veal) with Rösti the best he ever had the pleasure to taste and my partner and I found the chopped veal liver, also with Rösti, simply excellent. The ambience is pleasantly quiet, the service a-tentative. The interior decoration of the restaurant looked distinctly - but charmingly - old fashioned. Prices? If you have to ask don't go there.

Reservations honored. Staff were attentive and did not rush your meal. Charming ambience, good presentation and fine authentic Swiss cuisine.

We had lunch here and the food was plentiful and delicious. The service was great. My husband and I wanted to split an appetizer and so thought about ordering the full size. The waiter said we could order appetizer size and if it was not enough, he would bump us to full size. Food was great and they did not mind my substitutions or requests to hold off on sauces. Also loved the bathroom that had individual use tooth brushes and Kheils lotion.

More than positive memories of previous visits last year proved some operators know how to maintain standards when we returned again to re-discover this refined & elegantly-appointed dining room in Central Zurich. The blessing of air-conditioning in a city virtually bereft of this internationally-basic amenity also sets this operation this apart from very many of its competitors, nearby.
Being remembered is always flattering & a gracious welcome never fails to appeal! Our nicely-appointed table was perfectly set up for what proved an exceptional dining experience. & so, well advised regarding the fine wine selected, we began our culinary journey....excellence never faltered.
The menu profoundly reflects seasonal availability of both meat, fish & vegetables...& cooked in the modern international manner--- its delivery to table free from butter/cream sauces & dated, silly swirls'n'dots on the plate---Kindli's chef presents beautifully-cooked food that immediately draws the eye & invites universal admiration & a desire to begin eating immediately!

I enjoyed hugely my seasonal choices of a perfect white asparagus risotto which was followed by the best Swiss mountain lamb cutlets I have ever had. A triumph of sourcing quality materials & perfectly judged cooking a la carte.
Everyone at the table applauded their choices similarly.
Kindli is proud they keep Swiss/Zurich specialities on the menu--their difference is they achieve a "lightness'' so often missing with others just dishing up so-so veal, drowning in cream & with a pile of sad Roesti on side.
The service at table was of the highest order, & again...friendly professionalism marks international standards.... the wait-service was of the highest order--yes! its all here at Kindli. Expensive? maybe...but worth every $$!
There are also charmingly inviting tables set up outdoors if that is your bag..If it wasn't for the smoking I would be more than tempted!
