Bauschaenzli is on it's own seperate Island on the Limmat. Open mid-April through September offers a nice range of grilled goods, snacks, beverages and more. There is a massive seating area mostly of metal tables and chairs and another area of seating at the waters edge of wicker chairs and tables, unknown if this area is a reserved section. Otherwise,...

We came as part of a larger group during the winter season when then Bauschänzli is occupied by the Circus Conelli. All service personnel was extremely friendly and helpful. The dinner which was mixed with amazing circus shows and tasted great. Just another great experience in Zurich downtown.

Locals as well as tourist enjoy the Bauschaenzli over lunch or after work a lot. Right where the Limmat river meets the lake one can eat traditional Swiss food (vegetarian too) and enjoy a cold beer/white wine in the sun. It reminds one a bit of a Biergarten and never disappoints. A little island of calm in the middle of... More

Late warm summers evening, mixed bag of bistro style European mish-mash food with quality ingredients, live music, good service, dance floor with live country music and ambience with a view across the Limmat river. Marked down as the head waiter decided to give our waitress a dressing down in front of us for requesting a slight change to a dish... More

We were meeting four friends of ours in the restaurant and had an ideal table on the waterside. The evening was nice and warm. The view onto the Limmat and the other bank of the river/city was beautiful with all the lights and the stars. The biergarten and the restaurant were fully booked. A live orchestra played and the people... More

... not that the rest of the menu wasn't great... but that creamy soup with scallops really was to die for! With an excellent service, nice wine and a great view over the river, what more can you ask for? Very big terrace invites you for a nice outdoor dinner, but even inside you won't regret.

I was pleasantly surprised by my Sunday evening visit and very pleasant supper with my friend at Bauschaenzli. The music was retro and live and there were many people dancing. They had a buffet available for the dancers and beer drinkers and there was a separate section for restaurant goers for a more quiet and scenic supper.Prices were medium for... More

I stopped here a few times while in Zurich on Business. It was right along the waterway and close to my hotel. During one of my stops, they even had a free live band playing which was delightful. Lots of tables and lots of fun.

We dined at this restaurant on our last night in Zurich. We chose this restaurant because of its location on the river. All of the tables that were directly facing the river were for customers with reservations. We did not have a reservation so we were seated a little farther back, but we still had a great view of the... More
