The Ecco restaurant is the 2 michelin star fine dinning restaurant at the Atlantis Giardino hotel in Zurich. It comes highly recommend and even rated as the top restaurant in Zurich. Despite my jet lag, I decided to try since I was staying at the hotel anyway.

Upon arriving at the restaurant, I told the restaurant that I was still experiencing jetlag and appreciate if they can speed up the release of the food. I choose the 7 course tasting menu and was seated at the outdoor terrace with a nice sunset view of Zurich. The restaurant filled up quickly, and not one table is empty, evident of the popularity of the restaurant.

Overall, I will say the food was good. The ingredients used were fresh and the presentation immaculate. The best of the lot was the lamb, cooked to perfection and superbly tender.

Service was good, and the staff really tried to serve me faster than usual as they were aware of my jetlag. Nothing to complain about.

The meal was overall good, and perhaps the best in Zurich but I won’t say it is so good that it’s a must try. Many fine dining restaurants in other cities can match or better this. So in the end, there’s a feeling of being underwhelm due to overtly high expectation.

My wife and I came for our 6th wedding anniversary. We had a lovely table by the window. Although the dining room was full, it felt very intimate; busy, however still able to have a conversation.

The service was extremely on point, very hearty and warm. The wine flight was well chosen, with grape varieties fitting the dishes perfectly and offering a tour around the great vineyards around the world.

Coming to the food: this was out of the world. One of the best meals we ever had, and we had quite a lot of 2 and 3 star meals in the past. In each of the prior restaurants there was always one dish sticking out and still memorable, even after 10 or more years.
At Ecco though, every plate fit into that category. This is because of the flavours coming from the fantastic sauces playing in harmony with the quality of the ingredients used. Simply outstanding.

We went for dinner at Ecco on saturday night. Everything was absolutly superb from the amuse bouche till the friandise. We still can't decide which dish we liked the most. Also the wine selected by Stefano Petta was spot on. Thanks again to Stefan Heilemann and his Team. We will be back.
