tired of going always in the same restaurant around Novotel, I decided to stop a couple of tram stops before echerwyss platz and get into the first restaurant i would have found. I entered into this small charmy restaurant: no more than 20 tables, with a lot of boiserie around. I received a warm welcome and great suggestions on the menu. I went for fish and took a delicious soup, and grilled fish. All very good and tasty. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

It's that simple: The Costa Brava has the best filet in town. Skip the entrees and don't care about the sides. Not because they were not good (they're delicious!) but because they divert from the real reason you're here: The beef.

Staff hasn't changed over the last five years. They're very efficient, professional and reserved. Some might take this as being unfriendly but don't be fooled. They just know exactly what they're doing and they're doing it well.

We went there because friends of ours suggested it. We live in Zurich but had never gone there before. The place is smal and cozy, the owner greats each guest personally every time and the food is fantastic. Price wise it is at the higher end, but well worth it. Their meats are out of this world.

no wonder this restaurant was the only one around with more than half the seats empty on a saturday night. how can you enjoy good food if you are being treated like a lower form of individual by this grupy - self obsessed "waiter".
the way we were treated was emberassing.
relieveing in retrospective only - everyone sais so.
don't go!

Tradition und altgedientes Personal ersetzen Service und angemessene Preise nicht. Wir empfanden die Haltung eines langjährigen Serviceangestellten eher eher als barsch und derb. Preisniveau über Mittag überrissen (2 Personen: 3 Mineralwasser, 2 Vorspeisen, 2x Seezunge, 2 Desserts, 3 Café zusammen 190 Fr.). Dennoch, Portionen waren ausreichend undbQualität gut. Würde in der näheren Umgebung andere Lokale bevorzugen.
