Old town too busy to find a table. Quite quiet restaurant as I believe their ranking must be on average; therefore decided to order some simple dishes avoiding surprises. Both beef carpaccio and white asparagus with raw ham were really just on the average. Amarone italy red wine quite disappointing. Food was served very fast as very few guests, that... More

The service is excellent, including the wine selection. It's recommended for meat (the Angus entrecôte is well prepared and kept warm with candles), however you can also go for fish. Elegant, warm and relaxing ambient in downtown Zürich at medium prices.

I have been to this restaurant various times for lunch and dinner. Overall I can say that it is a good place to go if you like meat and wines. The Angus Entrecote is amazing and they prepare it exactly the way you would like to have it (my meat is medium rare and they always made it medium rare).... More

We had the John Stone fillet and it was one of the best steaks we have had. The service was really good as well, although we came very early so there wasn't a lot of guests there yet.

Nice location but unfortunately poor service. They brought the meat covered in a sauce, which wasn't ordered. Then they simply washed of the sauce and brought it back. On top it was not medium rare as ordered but rather between medium and well done. The waiter asked if all is good and I told him but he did not care.... More

This restaurant is attached to the Central Plaza Hotel, downstairs and presumably that's the reason for 'Cave' in the name. The food was great, and the staff were very friendly.
