“Memorable for all the right reasons”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

As guests staying at the Opera Hotel, we availed ourselves of a dining experience here. The restaurant does not disappoint - prompt friendly service, exceptional food presented with verve and elegance, classical ambience. All the elements worked in harmony to make a final vacation evening one not to be soon forgotten.

“Excellent food, lovely service”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

I only ate here because I'm staying at the hotel and it was a rainy night. However, dinner was a memorable experience, and not particularly expensive by Zurich's standards.

Highly recommend it.

“Enjoyable meal in a good location”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

The photograph of tis place looks a bit off putting - one imagines it will be a very ornate, posh, and stuffy place but it turns out to be a decent upper-middle level restaurant serving very enjoyable food of the "Swiss - no nonsense" variety and at reasonable prices. The night we were there the lead bass singer from the opera we had just seen walked in for a post performance supper. It was all very jolly.

Beautifully prepared and presented food. Service was impeccable and friendly. The decor is a must see. While I was there with my foodie son, would be a perfect romantic dinner spot.
