A group of fourteen of us were well looked after for the whole evening. The food was consistently of a good to excellent quality. And the servers were very competent and efficient, filling our wine glasses if we needed topping up. The only niggle was a rather dire Creme Catalan which hadn't set properly, but other than this I think that everyone thought the evening went very well. And, I would definitely return to this restaurant with my partner or friends in the future. Places such as this make me feel that I have may been too harsh about the restaurant scene in Zurich in the past. We'll see... ;-)

The restaurant offers excellent food with some local specialties. If the weather allows, they open their garden which has a "Biergarten" atmosphere. The staff is young, fast and friendly. This restaurant is one of our favourite places and we have never been disappointed.

Next to our home and office we like to stay in the restaurant or - lets hope summer will come soon - in the garden of the "Alten Löwen". With a crowd of Friends in a wild evening, with partners in a delicate business-lunch or silmpy with my wife to enjoy the time to leaving off work or to meet neighbours; for all occasions here we find the proper atmosphere!

This is a casual atmosphere neighborhood restaurant with food and wine from one of Zurich's best kitchens. Formerly the chef of the Gault Millau Grand Table-rated restaurant Neubad in St. Gallen, Robert Burri now serves more traditional-style dished - cooked at outstanding level. I go there with friends to enjoy the Tavolata dinner, the always excellent wines, the nice service, and the time to talk and relax.

Food, service, location and atmosphere are so nice at the Alten Löwen. One of the best restaurants in Zürich. Looking forward to the next visit.
