Stopped here by coincidence just to get something to eat and a cold beer an early Friday afternoon. To our surprise the food was better than expected. As well was that service. Our waitress did her outmost to make sure our daughter had a good...More

I ended up here 3 of 4 nights. Not per plan but by choice. Although I have been to Zurich ten times, I never tired this place. Now, I will not miss it. Frankly, the choice of food is limited and not really that interesting...More

Situated near the city centre, on the river with wonderful views of river, bridge and city activity. Might be a little problem if the weather is wet as tables are just covered with umbrellas. But, for a Sunday lunch it would take some beating! Food...More
