Spacious interior held in a nice modern, sleek design with warm textures. Open kitchen, located right by the river - the menu offers a great variety of dishes from tapa's, healthy kalesalads to great meat cuts for maincourse prepared in the 800'C grill. Some of the cuts like the tomahawk steak are also available for sharing. My personal favourites were... More

As a meat lover I really like this place and for a business lunch it is a good choice. There is enough room to have a business conversation within being overheard by others. The service is very friendly and attentive. Nice wine btw!

Visitied this place with my co-workers. We were a large group. Around 12 people. The food was ok-ish. Nothing really to object. I head a lobster starter and an Australian Wagyu Beef. Both I found quite pricey. The real issue I had was with the service. Very unprofessional and sometimes even rude. When the dishes were brought they messed-up the... More

We only tried the cigar lounge and the bar right next to it. The service was so so, staff didn't really speak English that good, however we got what we needed and we didn't have to wait too long. The prices were ok for being Zürich and quality of cigars and drinks is high level.

We were a group of expatriates last Friday in Aura bar to celebrate the birthday of our friend. The location is cosy and beautifull it has also a great smoker lounge. The service of a charming well educated waiter was really nice but we had to wait quite a long time for our cocktails. On our way to the smoker... More

Very disappointed. Tuna steak overdone, entrecôte angus chewy. At a €300 meal for 2, with just starters and two mains plus two sides a silly price for what we got. Having been to Amass in Copenhagen the month before and paid about the same for a stunning meal, this was such a letdown. Zurich is crazily overpriced anyway, though: there... More

Extremely tender steaks , nearly no need to chew! Numerous Wine bottles. Offer of open wines could be increased Dessert choice also quite limited.
