If you care for a quality sushi in Zurich don't look elsewhere - Barfuesser is the best in town. We've eaten there on two sperate occasions four months apart - once for lunch and this time for diner. We've enjoyed the same quality of food...More

Stopped by to have a quick lunch on a very hot day and was pleasantly surprised. Sushi was fresh and quick to come out. My girls had smoothies and they loved them. I had a nice tequila cocktail that was perfectly balanced. Overall was good...More
