Nice and friendly staff. We were lucky and got a table by the window. Our option was eating the dishes of the day. Simple but tasty. The prices were around 25CHF.

I came here on a sunny day to have drinks with my friends, after a long waiting time to be seated, the waiters became arrogant and didn't pay attention to us. This is unacceptable for a place of such standing. Don't go there, even in desperate time.

Our table held an excellent view of the Lake and the main square opposite the elegant Opera House. It was a lovely day and throngs of people were celebrating lunch on the steps. The daily lunch menu was not inviting to my companion , so we ordered off the main menu. My cordon bleu was filled nicely and I enjoyed... More

The restaurant is located next to the Zurich Opera so it´s very convenient if you want to have something to eat after the show. Food was excellent, service prompt, friendly and professional. The ambient is elegant, I would change the lights however, as they are too bright. All in all, very good experience.

The restaurant offers good choice of lunch, including fresh salad buffet. The view over the Zurich Lake is gorgeous. Service is a bit slow, but it is okay.

The opera that I was attending started at 6pm so the Belcanto was perfect for a late-afternoon lunch. Staff were friendly and efficient. Steak tartare, veal strips in cream sauce with the inevitable rosti potatoes, crepes suzette. Excellent Swiss white wine. Very expensive, but very good.

At Restaurant Belcanto in Zurich we had lunch on the terrace. We ordered Beef Carpaccio en Salade Caprese. The beef was very good and the different colored tomatoes with mozzarella were fine too. We drank a rose pinot noir which was the only rose they offered. Overall the food was ok but the waiting time was too long and the... More

We were there for lunch. The whole area was renovated, as you can see from the photo I attached. The restaurant is modern, seems very specious and cozy. When we were there it was after the lunch rush-hour so it was also pleasantly quiet. The food was good, but for that price range I had better lunch and dinner experiences... More
