Dont expect a cheap place. However Hiltl is defently worth a visit once. You dont have to be vegetarian to enjoy the infinite options of excellent food. Give it try and you will not leave unsatisfied!

This is the oldest (continuously open) vegetarian restaurant in the world. They've been there since 1898. All these years and honestly they still don't know how to add some flavor to their dishes. I've just had lunch (last sunday). You can choose to help yourself from the buffet or be seated and choose from the "A la carte" menu. We've... More

A even wider selection of Indian inspired bites that by and large taste the same, to my palate anyway. This restaurant send to be very popular with a certain type, especially women. I am sure I will be back, but at my wife's request, not mine. What can I say, it's nice, it's okay, but that's it for me. Your... More

Went to this restaurant recommended by our hotel Grand Kameha twice during our stay in Zurich. It is an absolute delight for a vegetarian with the endless choices and tasty selections. A little pricey but well worth the visit.

It's not that I didn't like this restaurant. Or love the vegetarian food on offer. (I did). And there is a treasure trove of tastes to try. But here lies the problem. To taste everything in the buffet will cost (on an equivalent world price scale) a considerable amount of money. Why is that? There is what is known in... More
