Located in the calm, but central part of the city, this restaurant is easy to reach by foot and public transport. Do not attempt to go there by car, as parking places are scarce. The restaurant is comparably big. with large windows and wooden tables, it is equally suited for larger groups and small romantic dinners. Staff is nice and... More

I ate here with a large group of colleagues (30 or so) and we all had a three course set menu. This consisted of a garden salad, followed by chicken and then a coffee mouse for 45CHF. The service was prompt and friendly but the food was distinctly average, especially for the price. The chicken was cooked well but the... More

I had the schnitzel for lunch, which is I was very nice. The staffs were very friendly. The only problem that day was that it took them a long time to serve the main dish, and the restaurant wasn't even full. (I guess it might be because all four of us ordered schnizels which might take some time to cook.)

We enjoyed a lovely evening with a group of friends. The menu offers traditional Swiss (e.g. Cordon-bleu) as well as international dishes, all prepared with care. The vegan/vegeterian choice is also nice, the lukewarm veggie-salad was amazing - simple but so tasty.

The Plamhof has a rather institutional look to it, perhaps because it serves a University and University Hospital crowd. The food is solid but nothing special. Expect no surprises but you will get your money's worth and not leave hungry.

meal served to a relatively large group - good white and red wines, very good starter, I had a fine vegetarian ravioli and though I am not a desert person, good desert with home made ice cream (perhaps elderflower?) mousse raspberries and bite of moist chocolate cake

I went to this restaurant with my family and we enjoyed the experience, dining outside in the terrace. Great food, good choice of wines and very high quality service in a very nice and cozy atmosphere.

I got there with some collegues. It is a quite high-level restaurant, and the food is good, but with little quantities and high prices. For rich ones!

We go here often for lunch and they consistently have a really good choice of light and more substantial meals. Seasonal dishes as well as all-year dishes. There service is always great, very accommodating and professional. I would say that this is likely the best lunch place in and around ETH/Uni Zurich campus.

A large group of us went here, and I think we were looked after very well all in all. I do think that perhaps the 'set menu' was a little bit plain, but st the same time there was quite a wide choice and most people seemed very happy with their choice. I had a green salad followed by the... More
