Nice restaurant with spectacular food. Located in the old town of Zurich. The service was great in a friendly atmosphere.

We found this restaurant while wandering through old town. The veal was delicious and the red wine risotto was to die for! Definitely recommend as this was the best food we had on a 9 day trip in Zurich.

Wandered in off the street after passing on various other options. Glad we did. Nice ambiance, excellent goat cheese appetizer, well-prepared turkey dinner with a twist, friendly and attentive service. Prices NOT expensive, but typical Zurich!

We were a group of 4 for an international business dinner. Food, wine, atmosphere are very good. Staff very nice and accommodating. English translation of the menu caused us just very small questions for a moment.

Off the main drag in a courtyard with pretty fountain. Delicious food. Seating indoors and out. I preferred out. Afternoon shade perfect on hot day. Delicious tasty food. Friendly service and old style architecture surrounds.

The restaurant was sparsely populated on the evening that we ate. Service was good, friendly and slightly less than professional. The food was well prepared and quite tasty, but portions were very small and expensive. A good place to go if you are not too hungry and someone else is picking up the tab.

Historic building and outdoor seating around a fountain in cobblestone plaza sets the tone for an incredible meal. Whole Dorade, Octopus Salad with tomatoes and avocado or an Artichoke (biggest one I have ever seen). Hard to pick from the amazing array of choices on the menu. Excellent wine and cocktails too!! Wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable about the... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times. All of my experiences have been fine. I never leave thinking "wow, that was a great meal" in terms of the food. The atmosphere is nice and the staff are friendly. The food selection is okay, but the food is never the highlight of meals here. I will probably end up here... More
