Traditional Swiss restaurant with limited number of carefully selected and prepared dishes. Excellent food at nontrivial but justified price. Large wine list, including some good wines at reasonable price.

We wanted to try somewhere different and a little bit special. The building is quite fabulous, staff pleasant but felt a bit formal. Food was tasty though it was very expensive for what it was even for Zurich standards. Interesting experience.

This is a cozy little restaurant which is suitable for example to enjoy a dinner with girlfriends or mothers. The tables are beautifully decorated with flowers and lit candles.

Today was the day for beetroots. The beetroot soup of my wife and the beetroot ravioli with pistacchio butter and cicorino rosso were top class. The Spätlese Zunftwein from Hallau was very enjoyable. But the restaurant knew very well how to pair this also with the other end of the spectrum: today I experienced my probably most boring porched egg.... More

7 mn walk from Helmhaus Hotel - Nice outdoor seating area - The sliced veal with mushroom sauce and crisp rosti was delicious. Nice dessert selection as well.

Saw a review for this restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. Couldn't have picked a better spot. We ate outside on the top level overlooking the patio below. Great food, probably the best we had during our stay in Zurich. Good choices, well presented. Extremely hospitable service. We were, in short, impressed.

Thank Bill R
