Very good service, excellent food! The interior is simple and rather traditional, very nice pictures on the wall. It‘s maybe a bit too crowded - all tables seem to have been booked that evening. Upon entering you are welcomed directly and brought to your table....More

The food tasted fine, the service was efficient, the atmosphere carefully cosy. We missed the heart in the entire experience. I would recommend it for business meals. Everything was perfect, but we did not get a lasting impression.

We had the thin pasta with black truffle and steak with risotto, it was superb. Make sure to reserve in advance it’s a popular place, it’s a little pricey but worth it!

My wife and I had wonderful meals here. Though expensive, it was the best meals we had during our 10-day stay in Switzerland. It is a cozy and comfortable place where people speak in hushed tones.

Freshest tomato and buffalo mozzarella appetizer. Plain “pure” green salad with superb balsamic vinegar. Schnitzel with lemon sauce. Handmade pasta—especially the ravioli—was superb, tender and flavorful. Excellent service with anything we asked for, spoke great English too. Our favorite meal so far in Zurich. 200...More

Just fabulous. That is all I should really say, but if you want to know more, absolutely go here. Marco and Abir will look after you handsomely. Oh, and have the veal “Zürich” style, with Rösti. I loved everything. Go. Go. Go.

Had a stopover in Zurich and found this incredible restaurant in a rainstorm in the old city. The friendly service was nothing short of impeccable and all three courses were top notch. The dorado was the fish of the day and prepared perfectly in a...More

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
