Kindli is one of the best restaurants in Zurich. The food and service was outstanding and the staff was sympathetic and professional. Really recommended.

Come here for authentic classics in a beautiful setting. The food is perfect. They use the best ingredients they can get their hands on. Service is generally great as well. It is much better than kronenhalle overall. I highly recommend it.
