food quality within expectation and at a reasonable price. service very poor. we will not go again and do not recommend to eat at this place if you estimate a good service quality and friendly treatment.

Only postive aspect: nice, quite place in the middle of the city.

Worst issue: food is ok, but not more. I never cooked that boring in my whole life. And extremely overprized, even for Zurich. Just a typical tourist trap.
Unfortunately I learned about the excellent review of its neighbour Lumière too late.

Another little surprise amongst the innumerable restaurants of Zurich. When most of the restaurants go for swiss cuisine, here you have a bold statement of spanish flair. Many of the guests are spanish and this is already a good sign. The service is also relaxed but professional and the food is excellent both for connoisseurs and not. Seating outside is very relaxing overlooking a charming square but also the inside is warm and cosy.

We ordered shared starters then Paella for four. it was delicious and huge, came in two servings we did not expect the second so no room for desert.

This is the 2nd time we have eaten here (last time 3 years ago). This a family run restaurant in a quiet olde part of Zurich which permits one to eat in a small square at outside tables. CLEARLY it is a favorite of Zurich residents as we have never seen (heard) other English speakers eat here.

Both visits we have had fish dishes which have been delectable, in fact, some of the best fish we have ever eaten. The sauces are subtle and delicious and the fish perfectly cooked. You will eat slowly if only to make the meal last longer. After telling the owner how much we enjoyed our 2nd visit he sent a gratis digestif to our table. We simply wanted to linger all evening listening to the church bells of Zurich and sipping the last of our wine. Of course everything is Zurich is expensive; we spent about $165 for three courses each and a nice bottle of wine but we have spent much more than that for lesser meals in the USA. If you get to Zurich and want a lovely fish dinner you should definitely go here.
