I love this restaurant. The chef is one of the friendliest I have met too. Here with friends for dinner and it was too quality. Their wine list is brilliant too. I chose traditional Swiss food and was not disappointed.

This is a special restaurant serving special spins on familiar dishes. The wait staff and Chef are extremely friendly and the cuisine shows great creativity. Food prices are so ridiculously high in Zurich that this should be considered excellent value

Located in the old-town, this restaurant is popular both with locals and tourists. It's definitely one of the few restaurants in the old town that serve dishes on a high skill level. In my view, it's quite a bit overpriced for a regular dinner. I'd...More
