“cosy restaurant with nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

We got this recomandation from a friend and we are really thankfull.
The restaurant is cosy and simple decorated. The moules frites are a must. The ossobuco was so tender you could cut it with the fork and the Curry was simply delicouse. The staff was very attentive. Very nice atmosphere.
Not sure if there is a parking place.

“Lovely place with great view on limmat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

I love this restaurant for the interior design, they've done a wonderful job, combining Asian art and flea market findings :-) The staff is very friendly and they have a great wine list. They put a lot of effort in how to present the dishes and particularly the side dishes. Food quality good to excellent. In the summer time, make sure to get a spot on the terrace with a lovely view on the river Limmat and Zurich West.

“cosy, nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

We found it on Tripadvisor and were suprised in a postive way! The restaurant is situated in Zurich West in a old villa with a wide range of curiosity on the walls. The menu offers swiss, italian, fusion food and a lot of different wines from switserland and abroad.
Friendly and relax staff. Good atmosphere, a lot of local people.

“Great casual eatery at the Limmat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

We had a lovely table on the terrace overlooking the Limmat on a hot summer evening. The service was caring and the food creative and well prepared. Host and Chef Christian Egger is a wine afficionado which makes for a well appointed and very fair prices wine list.
His reputation for relaxed but great dining in casual but trendy ambience is well deserved!
We had a great night and highly recommend this hidden gem!
