Came here for a work related event and enjoyed the ambiance, the metallurgy outside, and the general theme. However, I found the food just ok and nothing too exciting. Best in mind my experience was a business buffet, so might be different from an a la carte menu. Worth visiting, but don't get your hopes up.

Fascinating old foundry - we had a business dinner/evening there. The drinks reception outside was great, with fabulous canapes. Could have eaten LOTS of them! On moving inside, we had a nice dinner - salad starter, veal main, very tasty. The organisers had arranged for a DJ/dancing which occurred in the bar area.

Suggested by some of the locals as THE place to eat in Oerlikon, and we were not disappointed! The lamb was delicious, and the wine our waiter (a GENUINELY friendly and lovable man) recommended was wonderful. They serve some great cheese too, accompanied by excellent local dessert wine. Will definitely go there again!

We had a private upstairs room here for a corporate event. Very good (and fresh and healthy) Swiss food, and a nice private bar upstairs for room. Nice venue just north of the city.

Our last night in Zurich we chose Giesserei Restaurant to have an enjoyable dinner and we were not disappointed. This restaurant is different in that it is an old factory, which has been converted into a modern restaurant.

This is an old foundry which has been converted to a modernish restaurant. I say modernish because the soul of the original building is very much there. In my view too much "there" as it feels very dark and industrial. The menu is simple which is commendable as it means all the food is freshly prepared....but I am afraid it... More

We came for brunch and were excited about the modern and hip interior in a former foundry. Service was very friendly and attentive. All food tasted great. Space around the bar and the buffet was a bit limited and esp. wheel chair visitors had difficulties to pass around. During brunch time a special kids workshop with paintings, games and videos...
