Cafe Odeon it one of those classic places that's been around forever. The moment you walk in this beautiful cafe you can feel the vibe. On the menu you can find everything from salads to burgers to Wiener Schnitzel and Fish & Chips, with a few surprises thrown in. For me it was an Odeon burger, boy was it good,... More

If you go nowhere else you have to come here. This is world class, attentive, not obsequious it is a bar and so much more. Staff are fantastic, prices not outrageous and you'll get the same service for a coffee as you will if you spend chf50. Brilliant.

This place is lively and stylish at the same time - while the setting is Art Deco style, the guests are laid back and casual. They offer small dishes with the wine, beer or drinks, on weekends it's a good place to start the evening. I loved the bar with seats in the middle, but also the tables at the... More

On a quiet Monday evening in Zurich this was a welcome find. Busy during the late evening and a good choice of beers; sadly no English ales on draft but it's not that often you find that in CH. Friendly staff and locals. Worth a visit although by the time I got there I was probably not in a position... More

I had the "Sennen Rösti" which was very, very good. The place is a bit pricy, bit you get good food in a nice location. When it's warm you can also sit outside.

We enjoyed a few drinks at Odeon after a ballet at the nearby opera. The staff is professional and the drinks solid. The decor and history of famous patrons; however, were the selling points.

If following the visitor map's walking tour of the old city Cafe Oden is a good point near the south end of the walk to take a break. Small with 1920's/30's charm it was reasonably busy at 10am ish. Good cappuccino and ham sandwich to recharge for the rest of the walk (although most of the other guests were having... More
