We took a "beef fillet with fries" and asked the waitress whether we could have less fries and some salad instead. She said it was "either or", so one of us took fries and the other one salad. Upon paying, we realized that we had...More

Atmosphere is close and very relaxed. A bit like a swiss beer-hall with the decor and the general mustiness inside. A good place for friends to come, drink a few beers and have some nice beef on a hot plate. Probably not ideal in the...More

Restaurant has very simple Swiss decor, however if you want a real filet of beef or horse go here. It is reasonably expensive, like most things in Zurich, but excellent. Do not wear clothes that attract smells like wool. Given all the hot stones around...More
