We ended up having dinner at this place just by accidentally coming accross their website and it turned out to be a great find for a relaxed dinner with good, unpretentious food. The pumpkin tagliatelle was to-die-for (even the next day after taking the rest with us in a doggy bag). The menu is short and simple and they have... More

The food is delicious. Orange salad, Agnolotti, Panna Cotta with passion fruit were great, so was the wine and the prosecco. The hosts are very friendly and the atmosphere in this smaller restaurant is very warm and cozy.

I went to Jdaburg with a small group of five. We all very much enjoyed it. The service was friendly and very efficient. The food was very good with fresh and local ingredients with meat coming from the Engadine valley. Our evening was great and I can only recommend it.

I was there last weekend with a couple of friends. The place itself it's elegant and simple, the service was really good, our waiter was attentive and funny. The food itself was too simple, I had a spinach salad, which was ok and then I had the risotto with Engadin sausages, the risotto was kind of saugy and unremarkable, the... More

The food was excellent and high quality, the service super friendly and the layout is really well done. To make an advance reservation for a table on weekends is recommended.

The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere, the waiters are very friendly and provide a real service. Some more vegetable based or fish dishes would make the choice better for non meat eaters (pasta is not always a good alternative). Extra points for the reasonably priced and very good wine choice. Well done overall!

Been to this place after a break of some years and we were delighted. An interesting selection of wines (with some excellent Swiss wines (Neukom)) and really delicious food (we had the truffle cheese Cordon Bleu which is a real treat) and all this is very reasonably priced considering Zurich's rather high price level for fine dining. The staff do... More

Each time in Zürich, I look forward to having dinner at ... Jdaburg - and weather permitting, preferably outdoors, on the quiet sidewalk, corner-terrace. The restaurant's very nice black-and-white (picture/post-) card features ... a sweet toy-bunny, looking at, from the sidewalk, the traditional building with the "JDABURG RESTAURANT" lettering stencilled on its corners. The picture's playful, minimalist aesthetic does set... More

We went to Jdaburg with a group of 8 friends yesterday night... The food was good, but: 1. we had to wait way too long for it (about 50 minutes - which is a lot as everyone took the same menu) and 2. way too expensive! (about 50.- CHF just for the main dish!). Overall: good and special food, but... More

We missed our connecting flight and had to overnight in Zurich. Fortunately we met a man at the airport's Swiss lounge who recommended Jdaburg restaurant. Upon arrival we met the owner who was so accommodating as the menu was only in German. He took the time to translate each item even though every seat of this intimate spot was taken... More
