What makes this place special is the outdoor seating. The service was below average here, which was dissappointing, was slow and unfriendly. The tapas we had were good. Overall, was an ok experiences and maybe would try again for dinner.

We attended a large dinner with a set menu at the Strauss. This is challenging for most restaurants, but the Strauss absolutely mastered it! Best food I have ever had at one of these large events. Service was excellent too!

Great location and very central, contemporary interior decoration and furnishing, and importantly [...] professional and amicable staff. The menu is diverse, the various dishes of excellent quality and the cost-benefit-analysis very appropriate.

Gault Millau was right when they rated this traditional and centrally located restaurant with one of the few and nice smoking bars one point lower this year. Service slowed down, the top chef de cuisine has gone while the prices for the still nicely presented and quite well prepared dishes are on the raising path. Excellent wines fill the opening...

The restaurant was really busy and noisy. The food was good. We had the typical Swiss dish of the season, which I can't recall the name. The suggested wines were good too. The service was attentive without being suffocating. A good experience that I would repeat.

We had lunch at Strauss with our relatives. We decided to try the restaurant as the menu looked great. We all had 2 courses and shared a bottle of wine. The shot glass tapas was ok, carpaccio was tasty. Mains were pleasant. One of our group asked for a sprite, which they said they didn't have. We then watched one... More

This restaurant is one of our favourites in Winterthur. The food is always excellent, although admittedly pricey. The location is good (close to the railway station) and the atmosphere inside and outside is very nice. It is also a great place even if you just want to get a drink on a sunny Saturday afternoon in summer. Service depends on... More

Great green curry here. Good wine list. I love green curry so I have returned a few times for this one dish, however parting with my hard earned cash when the staff are so rude has become too much so I am unlikely to return in the near future. Staff are arrogant and simply rude. I have been here with... More
