We did choose this restaurant and hotel nearby for a business meeting and lunch. Service was very friendly and attentive. All facilities were very clean and well maintained, food tasted great. Altogether a very nice place for lunch.

This restaurant is located inside the Courtyard hotel, not far from the train station in Oerlikon. One evening we decided to try it and we were pleasantly surprised. The food is very good and the selection is very reasonable, but mostly on the sandwiches side. We sat at the bar since the menu is the same as in the dining... More

The food was ordinary and very north American and the service was slow. I expected more in a Marriott property.

Dear keenvisitor Thank you so much for your honest review here on TripAdvisor. I very much regret that our staff was not able to meet your expectations. What you describe had to be a very disappointing experience at a Marriott property. I can assure you this is way below our quality standard. I therefore would be delighted to welcome you... More

The service was very good and the waitress was very friendly. The restaurant was clean and comfortable but the food is just ok in my opinion. Nothing special.

So sorry other people have had just mediocre reviews as our encounter was nothing but fantastic. It would of been nice to explore Zurich for more restaurants choices but after a long day, this place hit the spot. We ordered fancy drinks...a Simon Special I believe it was called. Delicious...orange juice, passion fruit, grenadine with a splash of vanilla. Yum!... More

Arrived after overnight flights and had lunch. Food was average but the price was not. Service was good. All tables have view of the outside so that you can observe life in Zurich.

This is typical Euro hotel food....nothing noteworthy to me....just convenient if you are tired and don't want to walk. There are several better places a short walk....but you have to wander through the tram station to get to them. If you stay more than a couple of days....it is worth exploring. Try Momma Mia's

I tend to avoid "big hotel" restuarants if possible, but we were pleasantly surprised by this one. OK, it's expensive, like everything else in Zurich. Bt we dined here both nights of our stay, enjoyed it, and would happily go back again. We really enjoyed Guinea Fowl, Aubergine Involtini, and Crispy Pork Shank - though the latter was huge and...

Breakfast here was just awesome.. And also during my trip, they were celebrating the OKtoberfest, so had the luxury of trying some real good local brewed beers... Food is good, though options are limited and is quite expensive.
