We have previously written very positive reviews of MC, and had another excellent lunch in September. The purpose of this note is to thank and compliment them for being extremely helpful and caring planning a gluten-free lunch for a friend who was with us. Bottom line is we enthusiastically recommend Mere Catherine.

Tucked away in a courtyard, with dining in and out, Mere Catherine has an exquisite menu, a list of underrated wines, and offers good value for its excellent fare. I had escargot followed by cous cous choux Fleur - my friends had onion soup followed by steak. Many of our fellow dinners chose what seems to be the house speciality... More

Laid back in cosy courtyard at the end of street. Water fountain nearby created nice ambiance. Shaded and full sun available at lunchtime. Friendly service. Moules n chips spot on.

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... More

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.

I can only speak for the weekday lunches which make me a frequent visitor. Their daily plates are generally light but sufficient. This means you'll manage the afternoon with getting neither sleepy from lots of carbs, nor hungry from too small of a plate. Everything seems always fresh and made from scratch without convenience products. What really sets them apart... More
