Had a fantastic meal here the other nights on the recommendation of some friends and we were not disappointed. This is a hidden gem in the middle of Zurich that is out of the main area a little but well worth tracking down. My entree was a delicious salad and the main course was a mouth watering ravioli. Only a... More

It's a real pleasure to sit in Stefs Freieck's intimate garden and eat truly delicious food. Although we are an "old" couple, it would be a great place to impress a date. The menu is classic European with fresh ingredients and imaginative composition. The service is attentive and timely. Meinrad takes the time to chat and laugh. It will be... More

Stefs Freieck is not a restaurant you happen to bump into. But it is definitely worth the small detour! The atmosphere is very friendly and intimate. The food selection is limited, however, this is a great plus! The food is excellent.

I went with a work colleague for an afterwork drink and we decided to go for dinner, as I'm not very familiar with the where to go and I usually go to the places I already know, I was pretty happy to explore a new place! So Stefs Freieck is super cute, it has max 10 tables and it is... More

This restaurant was one of our favorite dining experiences on our trip to Zurich. Be sure to get your reservation ahead of time, as the restaurant is small and can fill up quickly. The atmosphere is cozy, the service is outstanding, and the food is excellent - no matter what you choose from the menu, you will be satisfied.

Dinner menues are either 3,4 or 5 course menues, well selected and prepared, also served very nicely, the wine list could be a little bit more extensive ... very nice and cosy restaurant, make sure you book as it is small and well frequented

Stefan has added a few new dishes to his menu with are worth trying like the vegetarian tatar (difficult to recognize that there is no beef in it), the coq-au-vin and Meinrad continues to serve his cheese platter with the outstanding Brie. It is these little things and the family style atmosphere which make this place my favourite in Zurich.

The restaurant is pretty small and, I would say, it's like sitting in a living room... But, what you will experience is outstanding! Great service, tasteful dishes and a lovely atmosphere. I know, this you can find in many other places... According to a really true saying: You get what you pay for! And at Stefs Freick, this hits the... More

A warm welcome by the chef himself, very friendly service, a selection of fine food and good recommendations on the wine made this evening very special. The price of the food is reasonable, as the place is very small and the food quality is exceptional! We will sure come back!
