This small French restaurants offers a large selection of delicious food. They have a lovely setting outside and it is quiet and friendly. They also have more traditional Züricher food and it well prepared and very tasty. Booking a table is recommended during the weekend

We ordered veal cutlet which was so so, pasta with seafood which was mostly mussels, foie gras and mixed green salad. Only the salad was very good. Mussels were not fresh. They should be careful about serving something that might case serious stomach problems. It...More
