Beautiful warm evening saw tables laid outside view views of the shops in old town. Service ranged from super-attentive to ‘where is everyone?’. The food was very nice but perhaps it was more the mood and atmosphere that made it. They have some great Swiss...More

I’ve been to the Kindli a number of times for dinner. The food is always good. While it is traditional Swiss fare it never disappoints, the veal is particularly good. The wine list is pricey but has good variety and the waiters are good with...More

Very nice restaurant in the middle of Zurich. Very good food, great selection of wines and very attentive waiters. Strongly recommended for business, friends and family. At the same time it is an expensive restaurant

We have been in Kindli on 23th december 2017. It was fully booked but the service was still very good. The dishes are from good quality but also quit expensive. It is a beautiful restaurant in an old townhouse.

Steak was great the margaritas were generous and reasonable , the prawns weren’t over cooked and the service was pretty good as I could see she was busy as hell.

I wanted to eat this typical Zürcher dish in the most Zürcher environment- and I found it here. The rosti were perfect and the waiter recommended a great wine. The kindli is warm and welcoming and the Geschnetzeltes were out of this world. I was...More
