Friends of our, who are sponsors of the Miller's Studio theatre next door, invited us to a dinner here, before going to the performance. It is all in a protected brick building of a former Belle Epoque mill and in the restaurant there is machinery from these days in the center, together with pipes along the ceiling, giving the place...

This place has been open for business about as long as I have lived in Zurich. It is an evergreen and a stayer with good reason. Super menu, properly attentive service, super food. Even our foodie teenager was impressed. Super beef from Dieter Meier of Yello fame. Even pasta to take home; though if you want it, order it early... More

I won't go into detail about the atmosphere or the food in that restaurant - it was good, but that didn't matter in the end. Despite the fact that we've ordered "mineral water", we were served with water in a reusable glass bottle - a common thing in case you order tap water. And even though it actually was tap... More

A modern restaurant with a good atmosphere. The menu looks interesting and the duck was delicious (albeit not blue). The risotto innovative, but not that delicious. Our waitress was very efficient but without a smile, a bit like grumpy mummy dealing with her teenage pratlets.

perfect atmosphere mixed with haute cuisine. Friendly waiters served the starters, which were soup and tartar. Very well spiced. Main course was duck and duck filled Ravioli. Our choice of dessert was chocolate creme brûlée and Amarillenknoedel. Every dish was a highlight and they have a well assorted wine selection.

A group of ten, we were welcome with the old Austrian hospitality-I almost felt a bit like on Ski holiday! There were a few linguistic problems along the way like me and the waiter not agreeing on what "caffè latte" meant (what I interpret as a synonym for 'Schale', he took to mean a Latte Macchiato). But I really can't... More

We went there for a business dinner in a group. The setting is very nice in the renovated mill. The service was a bit rough and quite pushy, not giving time to decide. The recommendation was for the roast beef, which most of us ordered. It was good, but nothing exceptional and definitely expensive, even for Zurich standards. Considering it... More

One of the places in Zurich where the staff is super friendly. They have nice little starters that don't fill you up that much. You will need the space for the enormous schnitzel they serve. I think it is the house specialty as it is sooo good. I have never tried a different main course in all the times I... More
