Really an odd place. 48 for a stroganoff beef with some noodles, average taste, average look, overpriced wine. And then again I really enjoyed my late night snack (Open until midnight during the weekend). There is something interesting about the atmosphere, can't really tell what though. I guess it's just worth the try...

I went there for a business lunch, the place is nice, good located and even the outdoor seating is nice considering it is near a busy road. The Staff was very friendly and even agreed to bring a side dish that was not on the card, really great. I went for the "Avocado-Mangosalat mit Cocktail Crevetten" and i have to... More

We went there for dinner thought it was a good place to settle. We end up waiting for our dinner for an hour while '3' tables in front of us who came after almost finish their meal. Food was too salty and pricey! No apologize for our delayed food.... #sad

Ever since Fredi Müller bought the place in 1992 and Prince performed his legendary after show a year later Kaufleuten has been the trendy epicenter of Zurich. The restaurant has equally been a hotspot to mingle with the beautiful and the wealthy or those wanting to mingle with them. The food however had been tepid in comparison the last few... More

A new (?) and hip place in Zurich. The food was excellent and the interior kind of dull - but the food was at the top level. With a mix of young people and business this looked like a nice place for a lunch.

A group of friends, we tried this reasurant in the centre of Zurich. On my side, the dinner started very well, with a good and fresh mixed salade, but it went on poorly, with an oily schnitzel and french fries which were so salty that I couldn't eat them. The bill was expensive and not adequate to food and service.

In our stylish restaurant we serve fresh, seasonal food from organic farms and exquisite wines. As a typical Kaufleuten speciality we recommend our Wienerschnitzel. The restaurant is the place for easygoing indulgence but also appropriate for a cultivated business meal, cheerful birthday party or a romantic tete-a-tete.
