Swiss roots meet American ingredients. While not fully authentic, the fare is not bad. Zurich geschnetzeltes is an all-porcine (no veal) affair done adequately while the rostli could've been a tad crisper. Soup was executed flawlessly. Tasty until one gets to Heidi-land itself. En guete!

Love this place! The chef/owner's father was a famous chef in Hawaii at The Kahala Hilton. Then he opened his own successful restaurant in Niu Valley on Oahu. Closed for many years now, I was delighted to find his daughter and partner had opened this restaurant on Alberta. Many old favorites from the Swiss Inn are here including the famous... More

Just had another amazing meal at Hibiscus. What a gem. Their attention to detail (cold salad plates), the incredible food, and being made to feel like family all come together in a seamless fashion to create a perfect dinner on a cold winter night. Oh and the deserts that we had, were the perfect ending to a fabulous dinner: homemade... More

Not the easiest place to find, but so well worth it. Very few tables expertly served and very friendly. Had to have escargot to start, yum! A rare treat. We both had schnitzel, my wife's was pork wienerschnitzel and mine was paprika schnitzel. We both throughly enjoyed our choices, particularly because they came with spatula, the Swiss version a little... More

This is a great little place just off of NE Alberta. Reservations are an absolute must since there is very limited seating. We came for dinner on a Thursday night and were happy to find out they also serve lunch. Throughout our dining experience, the service was impeccable. The food was very well prepared and flavorful. We ordered the appetizer... More

Really different food and all tasty. Three of us shared three entrees and found everything cooked to perfection. We had the goulash, chicken schnitzel, and pork schnitzel with a brown gravey and mushroom sauce. All came with very fresh salads ( special dressing), spatzil (dumpling bits), or rushti (potato pancake hash browns). The place is small so get reservations. The... More

I had the French press coffee, which was wonderful. Also got the chicken schnitzel -- holy yumness. Superior to the popular German chain restaurant that... More

This was our dinner clubs second restaurant. It is a small quaint restaurant that serves up authentic Swiss cuisine. We especially enjoyed the chicken piccata, rahmschnitzel, hash browns and the goulash. The staff was kind and helpful. We will be back. :)

My daughter and I happened upon this while walking on Alberta street and am so glad we did! Food is authentic and wonderful. Excellent service. Their salad dressing is so delicious that I will be ordering some to have home in NYC - and I never buy salad dressing.
