When I want to treat myself to a culinary delight I have lunch or dinner at Kindli. The old fashioned interior makes one feel as though one just took a step back in time. The menu is short and concise yet still manages to offer something for almost everyone's taste. The service is incredibly friendly and professional. The proprietress and/or... More

This restaurant enjoys being situated in the oldest part of Zurich, where the Romans developed an outpost in 15BC. Today the Smart casual setting delivers 5 star Swiss food... veal truffles pasta.. all consistently excellent. When I lived nearby this was my go to place once per week for dinner. Was never disappointed

This experience was enjoyable for the whole family! We all found something we liked on the menu, and all loved it (which is tough considering that we are eight people!)

This restaurant went above and beyond my expectations. I had lunch with a friend here since we were in the old town and were hungry. It's old school charm attracted us. My friend had a lemon grass curry soup as a starter and the beef steak with noodles and truffles. I had a green salad as a starter and the... More

Delightful lunch with my daughter. Adapted for kids with smaller portions. The service was perfect, servers were very nice. It was a pleasant place and not too loudy. We recommend it

It was a warm September afternoon. We had been strolling through Zurich's old quarter and were famished. Seating ourselves into comfortable chairs outside overlooking the square we surprised the waiter with our wish for a meal. Despite the hour we could choose from the full menu. Service was swift, gracious and the food delicious.

If you are thinking of fine dining... Kibdli restaurant is where to go. No buts no IFS.. just go. It's a bit pricy but wow well worth every penny. Just imagine yourself in a food heaven! Staff was fantastic and straight forward. No waiting and no arrogance. Simply top notch. Well done

This is one of the more popular restaurants in the old town area. Because of Trip advisor, I chose this restaurant to have a business dinner. I can attest the service was excellent and everybody in the restaurant was treated like royalty. I ordered the filet of beef, medium, with mushroom truffles, & fried potatoes. I forget what the fried... More

We found our experience at Kindli to be a tremendous one. An elegant restaurant within the Kindli hotel, it gives its customers a Swiss/European flavor with a simple and rich menu. I had the pumpkin curry soup and the veal escalopes with lemon sauce and fine noodles. The 2 dishes tasted great and were appropriately seasoned. The warm chocolate fondant... More

Kindli is actually an 'institution' in Zürich; it is situated in the old part of town, a couple of minutes from the famous Bahnhofstrasse: The interior is elegant, as is the service an food. One of us eats vegetarian, another a devoted meat eater; both had ample choices to satisfy not only their choice of food but also their palates.... More
