If you like Swiss food at a reasonable price, this is the place to come. Typical Zurich dishes were really good, including curried shrimp made the Swiss way. We shared a table with other people, all very agreeable.

A Swiss friend said we should try rosti and Geschnetzeltes (veal in mushroom cream sauce) and we finally found a great version in this excellent restaurant. Such a rich dish could be awful without great ingredients and technique, but the meat was tender, gravy full...More
