I enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere at this restaurant. The format is a bit confusing: one can either order from the menu, or choose a pay-by-weight formula, and select from a buffet. I stood around for a minute before I caught on, but...More

Love the huge choice of vegetarian and vegan food, heaven for us. Doesn't seem like the choice of meals changes very often but when you only go occasionally that doesn't matter - so much choice and yum yum. Will always go back when in town.

Really good food, moderate prices, gluten free-options. Waiters are courteous, attentive and knowledgable. They have a nice buffet. We ate at the restaurant. Reservations for the restaurant are essential, especially for dinner. This is the best dining experience we have had in Zurich.

Great selection of food. The restaurant can get a little-bit crowded and it was full during out visit, some of the tables were empty but full of dirty leftovers so we had to wait for the staff to clean them up first.

Strongly recommended by a vegan friend, I find it amazing and very tasteful even for a non-vegetarian as myself. The richest buffet I have ever seen with very good dishes and quite affordable for such an expensive city as Zurich. Very comfortable seats on the...More
