“Noisy, overpriced, average service at best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

The food is acceptable but not more than that. Service is average at best (if you're lucky). But most annoying is the noise level in the restaurant. A conversation of more than 2 people at one table is close to impossible and the musicians don't make it any better.

“My favorite for lunch in the city of Zurich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

You can't go wrong to visit this restaurant for lunch during the week Monday to Friday. In the evenings, the restaurant is rather pricey. You get the same quality much cheaper during the lunch time 11:30 AM to 2 PM. They normally serve 2 meat menus, 1 fish/seafood and 1 vegetarian.The prices are moderate, Fr. 18.50 to Fr. 24.50, the quality of service is high and he atmosphere is very pleasant.

“a varied menu, service is good, and it is always busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

I have been to this establishment at least 20 times, and the service is always steady, ask for an English menu and it helps if you don't read German. At no time have I had bad service nor problems with the food. We all had steak this last time and were very pleased. Tomato soup is very good. All had desserts and it was very good.

Usually in Switzerland the tip is included so be aware of this, I always add a few francs more.

“GOOD AND BAD!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

The atmosphere is 'unusual', but quite fun if you like lots of vegetation around the tables. The food theme seems to be Latin American. One of us had a spicy dish (Mexican??) which was HOT, but didn't have much else going for it. The other dish was delicious. It all took quite a long time to arrive. The worst feature was that when we handed over a 100SF note for the 80SF bill, no change was brought. It seemd to be assumed that we would be tipping the balance. This isn't normal Swiss practice (in our fairly wide experience), and felt like an attempted rip-off. It certainly left a bad flavour, worse than the over-hot food!

“Loved the atmosphere and the food as well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

We have been there several times already, I like the location and ambience inside, even if it's a meat paradise I was always able to find good vegetarian options and did not have to sacrifice the taste. worth a visit if you like Caribbean food.
