That's not a posh place, that's not a fancy place. But the food and the service were really really nice!

Grilled veggies are crunchy and soft at the same time, fries are seasoned with a paprika salt and the XXL Wiener Schnitzel was very tender and the bread crumbs well seasoned. Delicious with fresh lemon juice & Quollfrish beer...

Sure, the food is fine. The meat was great. But that's simply what you expect for the price. Minus points for unattentive service and very uncozy ambiente.

The idea of the hot stone meat is great (not new - you can get it at other places too - but it is just nice to have something to do during a meal :-) and you can get other dishes too.

But I was disappointed by the quality of the meat - even though I have a beef filet it was not tender at all. The sauces that come alongside with the meat are boring - it is what you get in a supermarket too (flavour, taste, feel). Why don't they offer a variety of sauces to choose from and some stuff that is a bit more exclusive (than just curry, ketchup and garlic)...

Interior design really outdated and without any stile whatsoever.

The tables and chairs are very tight to each other. People bumped into my seat all the time. Didn't feel really relaxed and you certainly don't want to talk about anything intimate with your friend as the neighbour table is basically adjacent and everything can be overheard.

Totally overpriced for what you get. I am going to Rollis Steakhouse again next time. It is expensive too and they are not innovative either but at least the place has ambiance and great quality meat and people/waitresses don't bump into your seat all the time.

We found an offer in Groupon and tried the hotstone menu. The service was very good and the meat was great, although there was not much place outside and tables were a bit small. Highly recommended, but try to find an offer in Groupon!

In Zurich good quality meat is hard to achieve (i am from Portugal) and i have been in this place 5 or 6 times by now (i live in Zurich for 4 years) and i never been disappointed.

I greatly recommend them for a nice hot stone meal.

Only advice i give is remember you are in Switzerland, one of most expensive countries in World and where meat is a luxury so paying 50 to 100 chf/person with good wine is normal.
