Great vegetarian restaurant with a fantastic variety of deliciously prepared food. We tried the self-service as there were so many options, only regret is that we can't try everything in one meal. Then again we'll be back!!!!

Good restaurant for vegetarians, they have many kind of different style of vegetarians food, some from overseas, e.g.: Indian curry, Thai curry, etc. You pay the food by the weight. Very interesting concept.

As an avid meat eater, I wasn't too sure how I'd find Hiltl, but as I do often partake in the meatless Monday thing, I figured I'd give this place a go on a Monday night with a vegetarian friend of mine from the area. I was quite surprised by the wide assortment of food! They had something for everyone... More

Always wonderful warm and tasty food, friendly and helpful service with nice atmosphere! I always like to bring my visits here since everything is always so great! Lunch in a week day went easy with no need for reservation but I normally always reserve since it is usually so full. The great thing is that they accommodate space even if... More

It was amazing to see a buffet open all day with a 100 items at a reasonable price - about 50 CHF for all you can eat and about 5 CHF per 100 g if you go by weight. To top it up, its all vegetarian which is a delight for vegetarian tourists in Switzerland who rarely find good options.... More

My family was in Zurich for the week after Easter and ate at Hiltl twice during that week. There is a large variety of offerings and everything we ate was excellent. We recommend it for everyone, not just vegetarians.

I'm not a vegetarian but wanted to give this place a chance due to its history and reputation. I absolutely loved it! I went for the buffet, which has so many options that it makes hard for one to choose! Everything I tasted was delicious, the staff is friendly and the atmosphere is great. Would definitely recommend!!!

This place is amazing, the food is ALL vegetarian and SO delicious! I went there with my 2 boys and my mother, and we all had a great time. There is so much food to choose from and a little area for children to play and draw. I would definitely recommend this place!

Loved this place. It gets fairly crowded. They have an amazing array of dishes. They have a buffet based on weight. A simple automated measuring device tells you how many gms/kgs you are going to eat & gives you a receipt for that. The waitress keeps track of that & you pay eventually! They had at least 50-60 dishes as... More
