The veal is the slow-cook version , very tender and tasty , and do try the home-made butter sauce with secret recipe. However, you really need to book the veal in advance at the same time you book your table . They also offer a...More

Being from outside Switzerland can’t resist the veal Zurich style and was not disappointed. Tender and with a good variety of mushrooms all eaten on the terrace at the rear One definitely for a return visit in a delightful part of the old town

Probably my best Swiss dinner in Zurich so far, from food quality prespective. I was not really interested in "vitello trotato", but the chef convinced me (and my friend) to taste it and it was excellent. Also main course was very good (which was a...More

From the moment I walked into this restaurant with my family I knew we were going to be treated to a culinary experience second to none. We turned up without a reservation which is not recommended and were given the only table in the house(...More

Lindenhofkeller stands at the very spot, where Zurich started more than 2000 years ago with a Celtic citadel converted into a Roman military camp. It is a cosy first class restaurant, where insiders like to meet. Expert and friendly waiters, excellent food, perfectly cooked meat,...More
