We had nice food and a very pleasant dinner with friends
Location is good and also the courtyard is kind of familiar so people can relax and talk in the middle of Zurich old town but feeling at home
Well done!
Try Mille feuille! You will love it

Always lovely food, never rushed to free your table, beautiful courtyard if the weather is nice. Inside has a bit less atmosphere but the food is great, authentically French, lunchtime menu is good value.

We had a wonderful dinner outdoors here. Food is expensive in Zurich, but this was a great value. We both had wonderful fish dishes along with a carafe of a local Chardonnay. The service was very good.

Located in my favorite neighborhood Niederdorf, I came here based on a recommendation from one of the locals, for my last dinner in Zürich. Mére Catherine is hidden away on a narrow cobblestone street off the Limmatquai.

ATMOSPHERE: Tucked away in what feels like a small courtyard, away from the hustle and bustle of busier streets, Mére Catherine with it's outdoor seating has a charming romantic flavor. Perfect for conversation. After arriving, I was seated pretty quickly at one of the outdoor tables. The place to be. Indoor seating is available as well.


MENU/FOOD: The Mediterranean inspired menu offers a nice range of Provence style dishes. Everything from Bouillabaisse to Roasted Rack of Lamb, which is what I had. I started with a nice salad. Ratatouille and potato gratin came with the lamb.

When the food arrived, everything was nicely plated. The lamb, while not quite as tender as I would have liked, was still very good. The ratatouille was to die for, some of the best I've ever had. My server made an excellent recommendation on the wine, a red, to accompany my meal. For dessert I had a Parfait nougat blanc, it was excellent.

While the prices here are on the higher side, I was impressed with the size of the portions.

SERVICE: My server was the sort of person who makes an out-of-towner feel like a local. He was warm, friendly and provided a pleasant atmosphere to dine in.

CONCLUSION: One of the best dining experiences I've had in Zürich. I can highly recommend Mere Catherine for their food and wonderful ambiance.

Great little lunchtime stop for beef tartare and goats cheese on toast. Lovely outside courtyard makes this an atmospheric experience - revisited again one evening and it was even nicer. Can get noisy when the Gross Munster bells start peeling! Good wine list and nice staff made this an enjoyable lunch.
