“Spectacular wine list, solid fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2010

Great courtyard setting, so definitely one of my favourites on a nice and sunny lunchtime. Owner is a wine freak, so expect a very extensive wine list including most prestige names but also many personal finds of Bü. More a meat lovers than a seafood fanatic's place but menu caters to all tastes, including a viable vegetarian option and daily specials. It's also perfectly ok to just go there for pre or post dinner drinks or for that matter for a "liquid lunch or dinner ", they got a small bar and are happy to serve you anything from the wine list and a snack.

“Wine lovers paradise - beware of the chef...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2010

One of the best places in Zurich for wine lovers. Extensive list, fair prices, many personal favourites and recommendations of the owner who is very passionate about his wine. Food is well executed, more a meat lovers place than one for the veggies, but always a good selection of fish and seafood too. If you are lucky and the owner is in a good mood and there are not too many regulars in the restaurant, you can expect a very friendly and personal service. Pick a bad day and you'll see why regulars keep coming and walk ins not.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2009

If you are looking for a special night out - this is the place. Just ask the owner (who is so friendly and fun) to recommend something. He will tailor your wine according to what you've chosen to eat. The food is also sensational. It's a favourite.
