Description: Natural enjoyment without a guilty conscience is the motto of the Tüfi restaurant in Zürich. In this regional kitchen, only the best ingredients from a number of local organic farms are used. The meat that is used comes only from animals specifically reared in the local environs. All fish are wild and caught fresh from the waters in the local surrounding area. The restaurant has the conviction to serve only seasonal produce. It is no surprise that the Tüfi in Zürich has been awarded the ?Label Goût Mieux? (the best taste accolade). You can be truly satisfied with the quality of food served at the Tüfi. For example, white fish fillet from the lake in Zürich, fried in butter, Cordon Bleu from organic piglet with Valais Alps mountain cheese, or homemade chocolate cake.

“Ignorance and a weird atmosphere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Although we have our favourite place in the Seefeld we thought we would try the "Tuefi", after reading mainly good reviews about this place we were quite disappointed. The atmosphere in the restaurant is really strange, you do not feel welcomed at all. When we asked to order it seemed a hassle to take our order. The salads werent that great and the sauce was too sour. For the maincourse we all ordered "Moules" - they were really good but the portion was too small, additionally to the "Moules" we each received about 10 fries (the plate with the fries looked as if they ran out of potatoes). We did think atleast the food is decent although the vibe isnt right until we received the bill. The prices were absolutely ridicolous, yes we know it is Zurich but not even the "Organic" factor can justify the price. Dont go there, there are many other places worth visiting.

Vielen Dank dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben uns Ihre Meinung mitzuteilen. Nur durch solche Feedbacks können wir uns stetig verbessern.
Als alles erstes, möchten wir uns für die späte Antwort entschuldigen.
Es tut uns Leid, dass Ihnen die Atmosphäre nicht zugesagt hat, es liegt uns sehr am Herzen dass sich die Gäste wohl fühlen und haben bis jetzt auch mehrheitlich positive Feedbacks dazu erhalten. Wir legen grossen Wert darauf, dass sich alle Gäste willkommen fühlen.
Dass Ihnen die Portionen zu klein waren tut uns ebenfalls leid, wir bekommen auch hier ansonsten nur positive Rückmeldungen. Bitte sprechen Sie uns das nächste Mal doch direkt darauf an, dann können wir Ihnen Nachschub offerieren. Trotzdem freut es uns, dass Ihnen die Moules (obwohl zu wenige) sehr gut geschmeckt haben.
Die Preise kalkulieren wir immer sehr streng. Wir setzen ausschliesslich auf regionale und saisonale Produkte aus der Umgebung, mehrheitlich in Bio-Qualität, was sich selbstverständlich in den Preisen niederschlägt im Vergleich zu Convenience-Produkten.
Wir hoffen Sie geben uns nochmals eine Chance und schauen bei Ihrem nächsten Besuch im Seefeld wieder bei uns vorbei.

“delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2011

We've been in the tuefi restaurant almost two month ago. Its a cozy place to have dinner (especially for couples...kind of romantic). They have a beautiful terrace and even the inside is very charming. As we got seated our waitress explained us very friendly the additon menu on the slate. The restaurant was packed but even though we got our food in time. To take a stock of it: Food was delicious (portion could be slightly bigger), service very friendly, our choice of wine was great. Its a little bit pricey.
