Atmosphere: warm, cosy, intimate, old-school charm. Beautiful dining room. Service: a real pleasure - attentive and friendly. Food: very good carpaccio; soup; calves liver. Veal steak a little overdone.

On this occassion we decided to go here spontaneously. We had been looking for a restaurant to have lunch and we'd been turned away at a few places, we were 4 adults and 2 baby's so it wasn't easy to find a suitable place. At Kindli we were received with open arms and seated right away. The children received teddy... More

Very nice and cozy Restaurant in the Heart of Zürich. Staff could be a bit friendlier and show a smile on their face. Otherwise good Service. Food is of good quality but priced on the high side for what it is. You might need a starter as some menus are rather on the small side.

It is a small, cute restaurant in the old town. The food is delicious and the service is good. The waiter was quite friendly. It worths trying if you are in Zurich for a long time. Though I believe when you are ready to pay that much there are better alternatives in Zurich.

Promptly served with our starters (I had the Carpaccio) colleagues had soups. Tasty. Chose the calves liver with rosti potatoes: calves liver beautifully cooked - medium to well done but melt in your mouth tender and no unpleasant hepatic ducts or major vessels to chew through at all. Absolutely delicious. Riesling also nice and crisp and good against a range... More

We found Zurich over priced,freezing cold,and not very interesting but were saved by this small restaurant attached to a nearby hotel with nice service. Braised goose, red cabbage, chestnuts and dumplings were delicious comfort food, as was the venison steak, red cabbage, chestnuts and sprouts. We went for 3 nights in a row. Decent wine by the glass.

Atmosphere, food, drinks, service – excellent and unpretentious. I may have walked by the Kindli hundreds of times, but never actually recognised it, although it is located in very pretty building in Zurich's old town. It really was an overall excellent experience and the quality of the food was only topped by the quality of the service. Standing ovations and... More

We love restaurants that don't have a kids menu but instead say "no, but your children may chose anything the like from the menu and we will serve a small portion of the dish". Because frankly, if you go somewhere that serves veal with lemonsauce and deliciously thin and buttery homemade taglierini, or rocklobster pasta with cherry tomatoes, or veal... More

I had lunch there on a Saturday with no reservation. The staff was friendly and helpful. I love the atmosphere there, it's actually very cosy and romantic. Food was good and I can't wait to go back.. my friends who were visiting from hong kong loved it too..
