I experienced the service as quick and professional with no waiting time and with knowledge about wine and food paring. This is a cozy little restaurant which is suitable for example to enjoy a dinner with girlfriends or mothers. The tables are beautifully decorated with flowers and lit candles. The menu has a fair selection of dishes and wines everything... More

Today was the day for beetroots. The beetroot soup of my wife and the beetroot ravioli with pistacchio butter and cicorino rosso were top class. The Spätlese Zunftwein from Hallau was very enjoyable. But the restaurant knew very well how to pair this also with the other end of the spectrum: today I experienced my probably most boring porched egg.... More

7 mn walk from Helmhaus Hotel - Nice outdoor seating area - The sliced veal with mushroom sauce and crisp rosti was delicious. Nice dessert selection as well.

Saw a review for this restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. Couldn't have picked a better spot. We ate outside on the top level overlooking the patio below. Great food, probably the best we had during our stay in Zurich. Good choices, well presented. Extremely hospitable service. We were, in short, impressed.

It just 200m off the beaten track where all the tourists are walking through the old town of Zurich and a little bit hidden. You get good service, reasonably priced fresh food and usualy there is some place available. I recomend that restaurant to everybody who likes good food and does not want to end up in a tourist trap.... More

Great food at a reasonable (but not cheap) price! Very nice setting, great service. We just happened to pass by the restaurant while looking for a nice place to eat in old town. The smell that came out of the restaurant was enough to lure us in, and we never looked back.

This restaurant can be found in the old town in Zurich nestling in a collection of medieval houses. The service is excellent and classic Swiss in style. Cuisine is Swiss with the geschnellses outstanding. Try the cream slice with berries for pudding but go for the small portion unless you are very hungry. Good local wines. Reasonable prices for Zurich... More
