Super location in Sihlcity. Great outdoor seating, plenty of shade. Really fast, friendly service. About 35 per head for a main meal, soda and coffee. Inside is also nice too. There is a Sunday brunch.

the ‘ruesterei’ basically is a great place located in an old paper-manufacturing-plant. the food (we had sunday-brunch) was nice, although the ‘filling-up’ of the empty buffet takes its time. furthermore the staff is completely overcharged, stressed and even unpolite. it’s a shame for such a...More
