“Lunch at Mercatorplein”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

My mother and travel companion 83 and 86 came to visit me in Amsterdam. On the day when they arrived after checking in the hotel we went to eat outside on the terrace at Zurich. Great place to be and the food is really super. Quick and speedy service with also English speaking waitresses. Had a club sandwich that I could not really finish, not because it was untasty, but because it was just too much. It was really really excellent. All of us had a great time. Got some sun. Got to talk and also people watch. Thanks, Zurich for the very nice experience.

“restaurant in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

They have one of the best salads I have ever eaten. And the portion was large. Barman and waiters are very gracious. I hope they are going to keep this high quality level.
Well done!

“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Stumbled upon it by chance, with no expectations. Looked cosy, service was genuinely friendly and efficient. Also turned out that the food was really good. Atmosphere was relaxed, like a bistro, the food even looked nice. Nothing extravagant, but plain good food. I will go there again.

“A great slice of local in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

When we asked our host for a restaurant he would recommend, it was Cafe Zurich.
I'm very glad we went and we were not disappointed. A cool feature of this restaurant is that they accept online bookings, ideal if you don't have the number.

It's a very cosy place in the winter (when we went), with a beautiful hearth/fire in the centre of the restaurant. It is a great atmosphere and. Th staff are very helpful and adapt to accommodate tourists with ease.

Food and drink wise it has an excellent variety, from grill to café style cuisine with decent portions for those that may be extra hungry ;) We were able to order wine by glass or bottle, but found the per glass option to be better value.

I can imaging this place is a gem in summer as it is set in a square with the opportunity for outside seating/dining. As it is, the exterior is cool & quirky and the restaurant looks like a mushroom - you won't miss it.
