Ate here twice during recent stay in Zurich. Delicious food and freshly prepared - pasta was superb. Local beers served were lovely and attentive service. Really enjoyable eating outside on the cobbled streets. Would recommend.

Had our office christmas dinner there!!! Great atmosphere, better wine and delicious meat! Rustical ambiance & decor. Looks almost run-down from the outside, those who know still go inside to be welcomed by friendly staff to have a great time with some very delicious steaks!

Saw this on trip advisor and decide to give it a go. A street behind the main traffic thoroughfare so quiet outdoor eating. We had calf liver and a local mushroom lamb meal. Both had very nice taste and fresh (colorful) broccoli and carrots. Nice...More

Blochus is a favourite on my "Return To" list. The food is excellent as is the venue, the service, the wines and the ambience. My absolute favourite dish is their Beef Tartare followed by their amazing Calves Liver Risotto. Don't visit Zurich without visiting Blochus,...More

Four of us dined on New Years Eve and we were certainly not disappointed with the food or service. This place is a little pricey but it is right in the centre of Zurich, close to the lake. Three had vodka tomato soup for starters...More

Fast and excellent professional service. Very popular place, (a bit small-but that makes it exiting) well frequented and comfortable + with great wooden walls. Great food and fine wines. We have been coming to this place since the 1970's ! whenever we are visiting Zurich...More

Greasy, poor quality ingredients, and expensive. Had some sort of salat with about 3 shrimp and lots of greasy undercooked potatoes smothered in questionable brown oil.

Very small authentic place. Food was great and service fast. We enjoyed it very much. Beef carpaccio excellent. My husband ordered horse steak and it was delicious. Beef stroganoff and schnitzel (pictured) were very tasty
