Good vegetarian food in a cool place . Very central with beautiful view to the city. Only 300 meter to the central train station. We loved the crepe with curry sauce and the horseradish risotto . Prices are ok , it could be cheaper considering there are no expensive ingredients (meat, fish etc). Service ok but we definitely enjoyed the... More

I enjoyed the food - a daily menu card - which you get a very fast service! Also a big choice of other Swiss food - made for vegetarian or vegan! The salad bar is well done! And please enjoy the few tables outside - on the balcony, 1st floor - with nice view over the Central crowed place with... More

We ate here one evening while sightseeing in Zurich. The meals were well-prepared and tasty. The restaurant seems to be a bit unknown, as there were only two parties in the entire place. But after trying to get a table at Hiltl, the calmness of the restaurant was very welcome.

I enjoyed the food very much! It tasted really good, it was very flavored. It does not have the looks of a fancy restaurant, but it does not boast as being one, nonetheless. I found it to look more like a canteen and have to admit that I was a little thrown off by the fact that when I first... More

I'm not sure what's up with all the bad reviews of this place. We stayed In Zurich at a nearby hotel and asked for a recommendation of a good vegetarian restaurant. Our hotel recommended Pot au Vert. Being a foodie and living in New York, I like to think that I have a good idea of what qualfies as a... More

Pot Au Vert is a true example of how a bad team can destroy a place. The restaurant has one of the best locations in Zurich but no taste at all. The place is very bad decorated, the balcony is dirty and with dead plants; the waiter which served us, didn't know about the food exactly and couldn't help us... More

It was the only vegetarian restaurant I found in the neighbor! The place is in the first floor! Not so good atmosphere and really low quality food. I had a salad and a vegetable soup ( which was small ) and A sparkling water and I paid 31 CFH, so it's also expensive for what it offers! Unfortunately u can't... More

Expensive and poor quality, I can cook better for much less. Fell short of the standard implied by the high prices. The English menu only records ingredients, not methods of cooking, so you need to study the German one as well to get the full picture. There is a terrace but it is straight onto a big intersection, we watched... More

We wife and I sought a vegetarian meal when her stomach was somewhat upset, and we found (in the rain) what we were looking for in Pot au Vert. Tasty food, nicely served, with "reasonable" cost considering the rock-bottom dollar compared to the franc. Nice choice of vegetarian possibilities on the menu.
