First the staff and atmosphere were super great. The decor is quite kitsch and fun to explore. The Terrasse over the limmat is well located and bright. Service was attentive and accomodating. When it comes to the value of the restaurant, there are a few observations worth mentioning. As it was not a busy evening, it's not likely that quality... More

Just across a pedestrian bridge from Zurich West we found Gruental.I feel jealous of the residents of this area to have such a cosy, welcoming neighbourhood restaurant. I suspect we were the only out of towners there and certainly no English menu so we had to call on our fairly basic german and take a punt on what we were... More

This a cosy place with a nice decoration. Very friendly staff! Try the cordon blue. The deserts are super! Not cheap but has a good quality-price!

My wife and I had a great evening in this place. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. The traditional swiss meal "Cordon bleu" with french fries was one of the best we ever had and we would recommend this place to everybody that would like to have dinner in a very casual atmosphere. The place is... More

We got this recomandation from a friend and we are really thankfull. The restaurant is cosy and simple decorated. The moules frites are a must. The ossobuco was so tender you could cut it with the fork and the Curry was simply delicouse. The staff was very attentive. Very nice atmosphere. Not sure if there is a parking place.

I love this restaurant for the interior design, they've done a wonderful job, combining Asian art and flea market findings :-) The staff is very friendly and they have a great wine list. They put a lot of effort in how to present the dishes and particularly the side dishes. Food quality good to excellent. In the summer time, make... More

We found it on Tripadvisor and were suprised in a postive way! The restaurant is situated in Zurich West in a old villa with a wide range of curiosity on the walls. The menu offers swiss, italian, fusion food and a lot of different wines from switserland and abroad. Friendly and relax staff. Good atmosphere, a lot of local people.

We had a lovely table on the terrace overlooking the Limmat on a hot summer evening. The service was caring and the food creative and well prepared. Host and Chef Christian Egger is a wine afficionado which makes for a well appointed and very fair prices wine list. His reputation for relaxed but great dining in casual but trendy ambience...
