Food was just ok. Service was relatively arrogant. Prices were horrendous. I don' care which famous person owns a restaurant - food quality, service have to match the price. This place definitely does not. I wont go back.

A beautiful place with truly fiendly, welcoming, knowledgeable staff and nice food and wine. We had Steak Tatare as a starter, Beef with salad as mains and a wonderful Dulce de Leche as dessert. All food was delicious and the Malbec was just great. Booking a table in advance is advisable.

Very cozy and small restaurant in the city center. For me the place looked quite Argentinian, the design and atmosphere were great. Staff very helpful and you can see that they really enjoy what they are doing. They have good selection of good organic wines (among the ones we tried the most I liked Cuvee Speciale and desert white wine).... More

If in town try to get a table. But that is not so easy - try anyway. The organic steak was delicious and the tiny restaurant memorable. Ask for wine recommendations - they have unbelievable wines!

Is hard as an Uruguayan to feel home in Zurich, since as in the whole Europe there are not many Uruguayan restos, but from the moment I entered there I could see some things that reminded me home, like a picture of Carlos Gardel, who is actually not Argentinian, but Uruguayan. As also some products that you can see in... More

We entered Ojo di Agua with joyful expectations and were welcomed by an impolite staff member- the waiter didn't interrupted his private telephone conversation. We ordered a platter " Pata Negra " for CHF 24.- and received an homeopathic amount. When the waiter asked us about the food, we kindly replied that it was a little short on the amount.... More

There's only 5 or 6 tables and very limited menu. They don't have/use a traditional oven to cook the meat in so they use a "warming" oven. It takes 45 minute to cook the meat, which is served on the rare side, they will put it back in to cook a little more if this is not to your liking.... More
