This is near the famous Hotel Widder. Very central. Has a lovely terrace with plenty of tables. But, it is busy and popular, book ahead. Or rock up at 6pm and you should get lucky. So, so service. Clueless waitress greeted us when we arrived....More

We had lunch in the restaurant on a busy week day. Service was friendly and the food French cuisine. The day menu is good value for money. Overall a very good experience. Recommended.

We had dinner on a Friday night in Lumiere and I was not impressed at all. The food was ok, nothing special, just ok. The staff was polite but not attentive. The prices were not representative of the quality.

Lumiere is a great little French restaurant tucked away off of Bahnhofstrasse, across the walk from Hotel Widder. Excellent grilled meats as the French do, superb wine list with many Bordeaux and Burgundy selections. Wonderful scalloped potatoes as well. Not cheap, but nothing in Zurich...More

First time there and I will be back before long. Rump steak cooked to perfection, pommes allumettes up to their reputation. Don't forget the dessert: tarte tatin or tarte au citron. Either way you can't go wrong!

Loved the food here. Relaxed atmosphere. It is a great place for a casual business dinner. The staff was really friendly and helped with the food and vine choices. Moules et frites are always a plus.

This is lovely French Brasserie in the city centre of Zurich. Cosy and elegant. Cuisine is superb, good French and Italian wines. Very good service. It is pricey but enjoyable.

It's not easy to find a restaurant where the kitchen is still open after 22h in Zurich. Luckily this was. I always pass by and I never thought of visiting it and I am so happy I did that night. The service was friendly and...More
