This is a lunch restaurant and as such it does it's job. The atmosphere is good. The service is variable - I'm not used to getting my food handed over my business partners shoulder in a white cloth restaurant... On my last visit the califlower soup was sub-par - a couple of spins more in the blender would've done the soup miracles. Otherwise the food has been okay, but nothing to write home about. I like the atmosphere so I'll go again, but I hope the kitchen shapes up a bit.

G27 is a fancy restaurant in the “Giesshübel” area. It is in an old factory and is only open during lunchtime, except on Thursday where the restaurant is also open in the evning. Well done lunch menu with rapid service. Good quality food at attractive prices, but nothing special. The atmosphere is the unique thing, but not the food which is good and gives no reason to complain at all.

This is basically an empty building you can rent out for private parties, with a full kitchen and two bars. I've been here for 2 dinners with my company. Sparsely but elegantly decorated, and the food was beautifully presented and tasted great!

The first room contains foosball tables, some open coat racks, a bar, a view into the kitchen, and plenty of space for a nice apéro. The second room in the back kind of opens up into two large areas with another bar and plenty of space for dining.

This place is also easily accessible, with a short walk to Laubegg tram stop and Binz station.

I was here for lunch with 2 friends. The service is friendly and quick. We were all happy with the quality of our food. Three different plates, all well presented and extremely tasty. They have some kind of 'homemade' taste/look. The restaurant itself is interestingly stylish, spacious and simply but well decorated. I just loved it!

G27 was obviously a workshop or garage at some point in its life. The neighbourhood and bare-bones interior surely attest to that, and this reviewer feels a bit lazy to research the deeper history or meaning of this locale. However, tucked away at the front end of a dead-end street lined with a mix of somewhat run-down warehouses turned into restaurants (there are at least 2 others), some boring office buildings, and a brand-new Lidl supermarket, G27 is perhaps the cream of the crop of this neighbourhood. It is wise to reserve at lunch-time, since this vast place is always packed with office-workers looking to the "alternative" to the undoubtedly boring cafeterias and supermarket eateries nearby. The front "terrasse" in summer is not beautiful, but it is pleasant. It's not required to have an expense account to eat here, even if prices are on the higher end of average for lunch - average prices range from about 20 to 35 francs excluding starter/salad, drinks, or dessert. The quality of the cuisine keeps people coming, however. There are 4 different menus everyday, and they are consistently excellent. There is usually one pasta dish, one white meat dish, one vegetarian dish, and one red meat dish. Seasonal variations are common. All of the above have that "home-made" taste, and impeccably presented. Service is efficient, and most importantly friendly. One tends to want to linger here for the relaxed, friendly atmosphere, and savour a moment of satisfaction in the middle of a grudging work-day. Never disappointed, always satisfied, G27 is a welcome escape from the office ! A pity it's not more centrally located, as this area of town is deader than dead after office hours and on week-ends...
