Super location in Sihlcity. Great outdoor seating, plenty of shade. Really fast, friendly service. About 35 per head for a main meal, soda and coffee. Inside is also nice too. There is a Sunday brunch.

A chicken wrap, a dog, a salad and two cocktails (90chf) and the order taken incorrectly and then the waiter actually asks outright for a tip. Mind blown! Good food, service staff need training. No response required from mgmt, thanks.More

the ‘ruesterei’ basically is a great place located in an old paper-manufacturing-plant. the food (we had sunday-brunch) was nice, although the ‘filling-up’ of the empty buffet takes its time. furthermore the staff is completely overcharged, stressed and even unpolite. it’s a shame for such a...More

I would have given the place a rating 5/5 if the service was more efficient and faster. The food was excellent and the chef was not shy to experiment with unusual but fantastic flavour combinations. The raw char with roe, beetroot and blinis, as starter...More

This summer the Rüsterei has a stand outside in the courtyatd selling Gua Bao burgers. They are delicious.spicey. I have never had a burger with such a unique combination of ingredients but it works well. The lemonade was however bitter.
