An Excellent Meal in wonderfull surroundings made memorable by the host Helmut. If you want attentive service without it being intrusive, excellent International/Swiss food with the occasional Austrian twist on the dessert cart, then I would recommend La Soupiere.

Sure, the location is great and the staff highly professional. Still I am lacking a little bit of oomph and fun when I was there. The other guests where mostly 65+ and it was a bit quiet and stiff in the location. The problem of lacking a good atmosphere is quite common for restaurants in Zurich, but a place that... More

I had great breakfast buffet at La Soupiere restaurant during my stay at Schweizerhof hotel. I loved their fresh breads and cheeses. Also I enjoyed the Hot Chocolate. I would recommend if they can add more varieties/items into their breakfast.

The place is really oldish , service of an incredible arrogance and snobish old style maitre d'hotel... But once you order your Emincé de veau a la Zurichoise you will be enchanted. Nice selection of wine, we combined it with a sardinian delight " Korem". Very expensive at 64.- sfr the veal but really good.

I ate a late brunch here with some friends and I was suprised by the old fashioned decore but very plesant staff and atmosphere. This was the most expensive lunch I had while in Zurich, but I can not say that it was not worth it. The food was fresh and nicley prepared and decorated. Great place for a business... More

Pleasant service and decor. Nice touches like the complimentary note pad. Tasty amuse-bouche and fresh ingredients throughout the meal. Good wine and convenient flexibility to consume by the glass at the prices per bottle. Sorry to say though, not the outstanding meal we expected after reading Trip Advisor's comment.
