“Fantastic design and delicious international cooking”
Reviewed 25 May 2010

What I like most about this restaurant is the careful combination of the traditional structure of the lovely room and the modern and tasty interior. A stylish and elegant setting. The food was delicious and perfect, I just wished for a bit of more "soul" in the preparation.

“Ritzy and Tasty”
Reviewed 2 September 2008

The Rive Gauche is the so-called "casual" restaurant at the fancy Baur au Lac Hotel. Not so expensive as the other one (Le Pavillon), it provides very good food (the veal ribeye was excellent) in a very interesting and fashionable atmosphere. Enjoy!
