Description
Wystube Isebähnli is located on the premises of a more than 200-year-old wine tavern in Zurich's Old Town. In 2008, it was acquired by Yücel Ersan and transformed into a high-quality restaurant of the same name. Everything in the restaurant is shaped by its past. Today, artists, intellectuals, politicians and businesspeople make up an eclectic clientele that adds to the establishment's unique, international and stimulating yet pleasantly cosy atmosphere.
