This is our second year celebrating christmas at the Restaurant Bürgli and we had both times a very nice experience! The service and food quality are of a very high standard, no chi chi, just really tasty food. In german we would call this "währschafte Küche". All origins of meat and fish are transparent and local (at least when I... More

After years of not visiting the place, we recently once again had dinner there together with a group of friends. The restaurant has only a small number of parking spots available, thus the visitor should be aware that finding a place to leave one's car in the area can be quite a task. The staff was agreeable and service oriented... More

Cozy place, nice atmosphere. I'd especially recommend the lunch menu, the best value for your money. Delicious food, also good vegetarian meals. Super friendly service. Kids welcome!

Not too far from Zurich city (as one reviewer said..just take the No7 tram...) this restaurant is an unexpected find being off the beaten track, as it were..... The party in which I was included took champagne on the delightful covered/paved terrace & I could observe more tables on gravel, further extending right into the shady garden itself--this environment, without...

We came for dinner with the whole family the other night and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The food was delicious and the views were spectacular. The service was excellent and always there to get us anything we needed. The only frustrating thing about our visit to Bürgli was that we drove around for 20 minutes looking for parking.

Been wanting to get in here ever I since I first spotted it. Top notch traditional cuisine - the house special 'filet cafe de Paris' dripping in black butter and an unending supply of hot, finely cut pomme frites is strongly recommended. Reasonably priced wines. Very friendly and efficient staff. Hillside lake view location with a lovely terrace for nice... More

Entrecôte is superb! But then again, the menus and service is generally good anyway. Easy to get to from the city...just take the #7 tram from town. Parking is an absolute pain and really a pity, especially when holding a party with loads of people who arrive by car. Anyway, visit in summer and you can enjoy the lake view... More

This traditional restaurant does not have a broad menu, but what you get is really top quality. The "entrecote café de Paris" is just amazing. The meat is so tender that it melts in your mouth. And the sauce... The local "wy aus Zürich" red wine, sold by the glass or the dcl (tenth of a liter) has been the... More

Greta for a business lunch or an evening outing, either as couples, family or friends. Signature dish is the entrecôte served with unlimited french fries. Lovely terrace for the warmer months with greta views over Zurich

The menu is quite small, with a few Options only, but they serve fresh and good Food. The atmosphere is nice and the Restaurant is very cozy. My husband and I had the Entrecote and we didnot regret, it was delicious.

Over 100 years as a restaurant has allowed Zurich's Buergli to really hone the skill of serving food in gorgeous surroundings. With its historic rooms carefully decked out in glorious technicolour the effect is stunning. With a brave bright 60s orange accompanied by mid century style furniture in the large dining room and a boudoir-ish feel in the smaller, so much thought has clearly gone in to making this a place to excite the senses before you even see the menu. However our pick of seats has to be on the terrace with its absolutely breathtaking views of the lake, the perfect spot at which to marvel at this glorious city and to enjoy food prepared with passion and verve.
