“Cozy and Swiss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

It was the festival of sechseläusen today and the opera square in Zurich was crowded with eager visitors waiting for the Böögg to burst into flames....it did and in the rain too.
To celebrate you must eat and drink thereafter too. We casually walked in to get the last table available and had a full. Three course dinner at CHF69/- pet person.
Check out the lobster salad as a starter..... So good!!!!

“lunch experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

The location of the place is great and you have the option to either hang out in the Goethe Bar on the left side, or enjoy a meal in the Brasserie on the right. When the weather is nice you also have the option to sit outside and watch the crowd. I went there for an early lunch and be prepared, you can't enter the brasserie before 11.30am, the doors are locked. We were lucky to get a table without reservation midweek as the place was packed within minutes. Service was good and efficient as to expect, and you can choose between several lunch options or a la carte. Food and plates was prepared nicely. A 'downer' in my view is that most of the tables for two are so close to each other you can hardly move without disturbing your neighbors.

“Brunch? A chaotic disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

A friend of mine recommended the Brasserie Schiller for brunch, so I went there with another good friend.
It started of well enough with a cordial reception and a nice table. Unfortunately, it went downhill from there.
The coffee and tea we had ordered got lost in translation. We had to ask for it twice, and it took 15 minutes to arrive, only to be delivered a second time 10 minutes later on.
Service was excessively slow and chaotic. The team communication did not work, and neither did the coordination with the kitchen.
I had, amongst other things, ordered a salad with caramelized nuts. Well, what I got was a little bunch of salad leaves with chunks of nuts sticking together in clumps.
The birchermuesli took again ages to arrive. When I tried the first spoon full, I realized that it was room temperature and thus must have been standing around for quite a bit. The skin of the mandarine slice stuck on top as decoration had started to dry, and the apples had turned brown. The whipped cream had collapsed.
I complained to the waiter who looked at me as if I refusing to eat a lukewarm dairy dish was a major scandal.
It goes without saying that the bill took ages to arrive, and - surprise surprise - that it was not correct.
The table beside us experienced similar difficulties and had to wait for their cappuccino forever and a day.
Well, to those of you now wondering what is deserving of a point, I would mention the quality of the coffee and the fresh and crisp bred.

Great food, fair prices and great menu-style offers! Location situated in the middle of the Bellevue-area next to the opera-house and the lakeside.. Service-staff friendly and efficient.

“Great surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

I tried this place out two times as it is close to my flat and was surprised how much better it was overall than what I expected. This is brasserie food so dont expect creative cooking! If you want that go somewhere else...but the food was very well prepared both times and of good quality and value (for zurich). They offered a three course for 69 CH which I thought was very reasonable for Zurich. The service was very correct and efficient. I have nothing bad to say about this place. I will be back.
