The price of the meal was reasonable for a Zurich standard. The filet was well cooked, but the Stroganoff dish was very poorly done and it wasn't even a real stroganoff. I wonder why the restaurant listed this as being one of their specialities....! Sepia as an appetizer was okay, but not as good as some other Spanish restaurants in... More

I have been to the Pergola several times and I go there since years. I have never been disappointed, neither with a lunch menu, nor with a pick from the evening menu card. Solid professionals there with staff working there for years. Reservation is recommended.

I had lunch with a friend in the Pergola and I was positively surprised. Great Italian and Spanish food at moderate prices near the Zurich train station (Kreis 4). The guests come from all walks of life, good mix of people with suits and ties, and locals who enjoy the tasty food.

Meat or squid/fish lovers, come on down! The food and the price is right here! *** Here comes the stampede*** This place is diagonally across from Caduff's Wine Loft, which is probably the most notcieable building within these two streets. But Pergola's less exterior presence doesn't mean that interior offerings are less worthy though one could say the interior furnishings... More

This place seems is a little old fashion when you walk in the door and the atmosphere is okay, but hands down the best steak I have ever eaten in Zurich. It was cooked in butter and herbs and I've never tasted anything like it. They also have a nice selection of Portuguese wines.

The restaurant was packed with people when we went in. The waiters were very friendly, although it did take a little longer to get served, the atmosphere made it look promising! We order the grilled veal steak and vegetables. At first bite, it tasted delicious then we realised how (very) salty the sauce and meat were. We mentioned it to... More

Rated as #1 gourmet italian restaurant in Zurich so i decided to give it a try. And they even exceed my expectations. The service was amazing, the wine selection was amazing (they have Portuguese wine including Alentejo e Douro). The gambas al alljo (Shrimps at garlic) and filet mignon were divinal. And last but not the least, the ambience is... More

There homepage is pretty detailled with maps, contacs etc.

The food is really great and everything is freshly prepared. The menu card is not enormeous but what they have is excellent. Nice ambient and nice staff. Reservations required as it really starts to become known.
