This was hands down by far the best meal we had during our time in Zurich. We spent the weekend with friends and locals and came for dinner here on Saturday night. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and the staff and felt looked after from the very first second. The menu is seasonal and filled with local produce which speaks for its quality and freshness. Amongst the 7 of us we indulged in fabulous beef tartar (which was incredible and way better than the one we had the night before at Loft 5), tender wild boar, the mussels, the vegetarian risotto and vegan butternut squash. Being out with a mix of carnivores and vegans can be tricky these days but this restaurant truly caters well to both tastes and maintains the same quality and care in each and every dish they bring to the table. Everything is prepared fresh and with an eye for detail. With the owner being a sommelier himself we left the wine selection to him which turned out to be the perfect pairing for our meal. We finished off with a true swiss classic - chestnut Vermicelle and also tried an amazing unalcoholic Seedlip Gin & Tonic.
Wirtschaft zur Au still manages to maintain incredible value for money with its portions not only delicious but also very generous. It is a restaurant which is perfect for a dinner with good friends, a romantic date or a business lunch as the beautiful interior and atmosphere invites for great conversation.
Needless to say that we will be back on our next trip and cannot wait to see what will be on the menu!
