We've been there twice but we will surely come back. The location is beautiful and the interiors are very well decorated in traditional Swiss style. The service quality is good although they are often crowded. They made us fall in love with the place as soon as they brought some goodies for our dog in a plate. The food is... More

We have decided to go for a Birthday lunch to the very traditional but recently renovated restaurant. The weather was great even though it was in October. A very large terrasse was nicely filled, but we chose to remain inside. Hunting season started so it was the good time to try delicious venison (deer) from Germany that was exquisite! It... More

...the staff managed to leave the impression that they are not interested to deliver a friendly service. We all have now and then an off day. But 3 times in a row when we visited the terrace for a drink is a clear sign. It must be said service is quick and efficient. But that is not enough to get... More

I have been to this restaurant quite a few times now. It is one of my favourites when out for a walk in the Pfannenstiel area or when we want to take guests out locally for dinner. I find the food to be of high quality (although not many light meals to choose from), and prices as to be expected... More

It is located in one of the nicest hike-out-areas of Zurich. It is located right at the point, from where one can start walking up to the top of Pfannenstiel (853 m), which is the highest hill of this area. The menu consists of various typical Zurich specialties, which are not always light and can be too much for those... More

The restaurant is located within the greates hiking areas near to Zurich and know this. The food is really everyday standard and expensive for what the quality is. Positive is that you can sit nicely in the grade and enjoy the view to green. I would recommend the restaurant only for a coffee and enjoy the food somewhere else.
