We've chosen the Restaurant Buergli for our romantic evening out and where not disappointed... nice service, great food and a view over the lake where very rewarding. It got a bit noisier in the evening especially when a family with kids joined the room next door but the staff handled everything really well. If you are looking for a decent... More

Birthdaydinner for five people Location is rly nice and quiet, with good interior design and friendly staff. Menu is short but has good and valuable choices. Prices for a main course are up to 55 chf which is not cheap. Plates could have been bigger for the price. Food was good and groundsolid, but not breathtaking All in all nice... More

Our host invited us to this restaurant - as one of the few good Zurich restaurants open on a Sunday evening. We were pleasantly surprised. The al fresco dining, historic setting, service and food could not have been better. The asparagus starters as well as their signature 'Entrecote Cafe de Paris' dish outstanding. The red wine was perfectly chilled. This... More

We enjoyed a tasty dinner in this cosy restaurant located a little bit outside of the center of Zurich but still quit easy to access from the main train station by tram No. 7. We both choose steak (entrecote) with frites. The steak was very tender in a delicious herbal butter sauce. The frites were just perfect and if you... More

This is our second year celebrating christmas at the Restaurant Bürgli and we had both times a very nice experience! The service and food quality are of a very high standard, no chi chi, just really tasty food. In german we would call this "währschafte Küche". All origins of meat and fish are transparent and local (at least when I... More

After years of not visiting the place, we recently once again had dinner there together with a group of friends. The restaurant has only a small number of parking spots available, thus the visitor should be aware that finding a place to leave one's car in the area can be quite a task. The staff was agreeable and service oriented... More

Not too far from Zurich city (as one reviewer said..just take the No7 tram...) this restaurant is an unexpected find being off the beaten track, as it were..... The party in which I was included took champagne on the delightful covered/paved terrace & I could observe more tables on gravel, further extending right into the shady garden itself--this environment, without...

We came for dinner with the whole family the other night and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The food was delicious and the views were spectacular. The service was excellent and always there to get us anything we needed. The only frustrating thing about our visit to Bürgli was that we drove around for 20 minutes looking for parking.

Been wanting to get in here ever I since I first spotted it. Top notch traditional cuisine - the house special 'filet cafe de Paris' dripping in black butter and an unending supply of hot, finely cut pomme frites is strongly recommended. Reasonably priced wines. Very friendly and efficient staff. Hillside lake view location with a lovely terrace for nice... More

Over 100 years as a restaurant has allowed Zurich's Buergli to really hone the skill of serving food in gorgeous surroundings. With its historic rooms carefully decked out in glorious technicolour the effect is stunning. With a brave bright 60s orange accompanied by mid century style furniture in the large dining room and a boudoir-ish feel in the smaller, so much thought has clearly gone in to making this a place to excite the senses before you even see the menu. However our pick of seats has to be on the terrace with its absolutely breathtaking views of the lake, the perfect spot at which to marvel at this glorious city and to enjoy food prepared with passion and verve.
