Unfortunately no one points out the fact that your burger will be served semi-medium done and since I already had to reject my glass of coca cola because it was served STILL, i didn't feel like also having to tell them how to grill the...More

We always like going back to Helvti for a delicious burger. Service is fast and friendly. Make sure to make reservations. It’s usually pretty busy.

Interesting American themed diner. Not cheap by any means but the burgers are a good size, tasty and the service is spot on. Good range of beers too. I had the same waitress on both occassions, a dry sense of humour and a burlesque look...interesting...More

Spent a very enjoyable evening midweek. Friendly and funny staff. Good and tasty food with limited menu. The restaurant was busy but the service was quick.

What a nice out of the way but well worth the journey. This American themed bar has nice lounge seats, a great view of the bridge and lake. The food is tremendous and the wait team is happy to speak English should the need arise.

I think the title says it all... Good burger but a tad too expensive for only having the choice between four types of burger. The sauce you choose is only for the burger though so if you order french fries, make sure you mention some...More

This place definitely has the best burgers in Zürich. We tried for dinner the veggie burgers with guacamole, and it was awesome. The veggie burger is very tasty and very nourishing. Clearly much much better than the standard soia veggie burger that you can usually...More

I like the fact that you can build your own burger. Don't bother taking a more expensive beef option (you can barely notice the difference). Quick service friendly staff & good food.

What started out as a running gag has now taken on a life of its own: We've begun rating food on a scale of how 'dirty' it is. The 'dirtier' the meal, the greater the taste and the more daring the combination of ingredients. On that scale, we seek to serve the 'dirtiest' burger in town - the ultimate burger in terms of quality of meat and taste, in other words. Inspired by Edward Hopper's 'Nighthawks', our aim was to create a Swiss take on the classic American Diner. A place offering a fresh design, comfortable seating areas, with a friendly and attentive staff, fabulous food, great music and a funky bar with extended opening hours for the city's nighthawks. We believe we have created the ideal locality for everyone: the businesswoman or businessman with little time on their hands, a group of friends looking for somewhere to hang-out, families, late-dinner lovers and clubbers with style.
