It was a great selection on their lunch buffé, all tasted good. It's expensive ofcourse, like everything in Switzerland. It was a little bit hard to find a table and ended up by the door, where it was freezing cold unfortunately (cause they keep the door open & people walk through the curtains constantly). So I just had to eat... More

I'm a major carnivore not a vegetarian but I loved the restaurant. I had pasta and it was freshly made and fully satisfied my requirements. The fact that this restaurant was packed every night shows the quality of the food served there.

This past weekend we (two couples) visited Hiltl for dinner. We arrived at 8pm and the place was still extremely busy. We were served quite quickly - as we were out on a Saturday we did not want to eat from the buffet, but preferred to choose from the menu. Everyone chose asian influenced dishes and they were all enjoyed.... More

The first floor has a la carte but is the same food as you see ( well mostly) below. We choose the weigh your dish option and the all you can eat ( 57chf). The... More

This is one of the most unique vegetarian places we have been to in the world. Great food that you can get by weight and it has a wide variety of foods. Good family meal with a nice atmosphere.

Even though I find this restaurant a bit pricey, I love going there. The variety of dishes are amazing. Vegans will delight in the creative food options. The home made lemonade and ice tea taste great. I prefer sitting downstairs were the self serving buffet is as walking upstairs with a full plate is a bit tricky. You can also... More
