I eat lunch here often. It's always really yummy and the service is usually really nice. It's not the place for a quick and cheap lunch, as it's a bit pricey.

We were staying at the Renaissance Hotel in Zurich. Asked for a suggestion of a local, nearby good restaurant. We were directed to the Bistro K2. It was a short walk to a "restaurant district" that had been developed in old warehouse buildings. The menu at K2 had many interesting local items. We selected a veal item with veggies on... More

Had dinner with my friends. Meal was good, had the Prime Burger. Only thing was too little choices to choose for main course.

Average, overpriced bar food: my burger was OK but costed me around 40 bucks. I asked for a dark beer but was served a blonde. The decoration is "industrial". The restaurant is located in an old abandonned factory. Toilets are dirty. Quite depressing place to spend my hard-earned money.

Hi Lacordaire 83 I'm sorry to hear that you found the food overprized. We will rethink our Prices.

We came to this place to have coffee. The cappuccino was impeccable and the food which was served to the people looked very nice: hamburgers, schnitzel and the likes. The interior industrial-style looks great!

Before any event at the Maag Halle be prepared to spend when you eat here. CHF39 for a schnitzel in a prefab small restaurant with no tablecloths and as far as I could see no toilets! What is going on here. The food was o.k. but did not match the prices. I know this is Zurich but REALLY!!!!!
