Nice staff and perfectly covered tables welcome you in this small restaurant. The veal chop ist just excellent as is the Iberico pork fillet. And the chef is also a wine merchant who has some hidden Spanish treasures in the cellar. Really worth a visit...More

The waiter was not friendly, and it was a bad service! I had to have a bad feeling because I didn't take a café! The food was good but expensive!

Most Spanish restaurants in Zurich have the virtually identical menu. Again, there is the classic Parriada, paella and beef filet. The food is good, but not better than other Spanish restaurants, but more expensive. The space is tight and the service has a lot of...More

Spanish restaurant which once had quite a name and was considered the second best Spanish restaurant in Zurich (the best being considered the "Casa Aurelio" at Langstrasse, which also seems to be on the downgrade as well). Now all that's apparently left are the ridiculously...More

Food is really good - fish, meet, starters - everthing. The restaurant would need some refurbishment but is still cosy. Service is - as unfortunately quite often in Zurich - not really good as you get the feeling that you "somehow" disturb the waiter if...More
