The service is excellent, including the wine selection. It's recommended for meat (the Angus entrecôte is well prepared and kept warm with candles), however you can also go for fish. Elegant, warm and relaxing ambient in downtown Zürich at medium prices.More

This restaurant is attached to the Central Plaza Hotel, downstairs and presumably that's the reason for 'Cave' in the name. The food was great, and the staff were very friendly.More
