We had the John Stone fillet and it was one of the best steaks we have had. The service was really good as well, although we came very early so there wasn't a lot of guests there yet.

Nice location but unfortunately poor service. They brought the meat covered in a sauce, which wasn't ordered. Then they simply washed of the sauce and brought it back. On top it was not medium rare as ordered but rather between medium and well done. The waiter asked if all is good and I told him but he did not care.... More

The waiting staff was lovely.. the steak was boring and a bit tasteless. One of our party is disabled. We took the lift down to the restaurant and were very disappointed that we had to walk through the service areas. He felt so uncomfortable about this that on the way out he struggled to walk up the stairs, and fell... More

We have been there on a business trip with 14 people. Everybody was eating a la carte (mostly) meat and we were very satisfied with the quality. The waiters were very proactive and attentive - great service.

This restaurant is attached to the Central Plaza Hotel, downstairs and presumably that's the reason for 'Cave' in the name. The food was great, and the staff were very friendly.

I had only 1 day in Zurich and was looking for a restaurant with good steak with ambience and this place fulfilled it all! I made a reservation. It was almost full house on a Monday evening. The lady manager was extremely polite and friendly. The environment was classy and romantic!

We did not have a reservation but were warmly welcomed by the manager, and seated promptly.

The decor is mock royalty, naff, kitsch. The service is quite friendly and fairly efficient. At lunchtime this large cellar restaurant was virtually empty and therefore soulless. Muzak was nasty. It specialises in steak, I had Angus sirloin and surprisingly it had little taste and poor texture. Maybe I should have had "Swiss prime" but thought I should support the... More
