The Weisses Rössli is an old favourite of mine and has continued to impress each time I visit, so this review is long overdue!

The food is of course, my main reason for coming back. I can highly recommend the Wolfsbarsch ceviche with passion fruit vinaigrette and the steak tartare and veal in morel sauce are delicious as well.

The restaurant is cosy, understated and with a charming garden out back. A lot of love has obviously gone into it; the staff are delightful and knowledgeable and small touches like the amenities in the ladies bathroom are always a pleasant surprise. I can't recommend it more highly.

With the excellent ratings on Tripadvisor we decided for this reastaurant. Sitting in a shabby backyard where tenants were looking down from their balconies, called "garden" was the first disappointment. The service was friendly, yes, but the food served was below average. Beef tartar was salty and not properly minced, the home made ravioli were dry, the filling salty, the salad was some slices of avocado and melon on a plate, one scallop was sitting on a risotto which was simple spiced rice. Only the chicked breast was well prepared, but again the pasta was dry and tasteless. But the 3 course dinner was 70 Swiss Francs, really overpriced.

I ordered the veal cheeks which happen to be the chef's specialty! It was amazing! I also got the special dessert.. Peppermint infused strawberries and sour cream ice cream... Definitely a first and it was wonderful. Overall services was good and sitting outside in the garden was perfect.

We went to Weisses Rossli based on the positive Trip Advisor reviews and availability of a table on a Saturday night and we had an absolutely fantastic meal. The restaurant is not directly in the city center itself which was fine with us but hopefully others seek this place out. The staff were very knowledgeable and pleasant and the meal was leisurely with enough time in between courses to enjoy and savor the food and wine while you wait for your next course. Everything we had was delicious but the warm squid salad and veal and mushroom ravioli appetizers were incredible and the mustard crusted lamb steak was perfectly prepared. A smart wine list with some interesting selections on it accompanies the food well. Dessert was a good creme brulee but nothing special about it so that was the weak point of the meal.

Prices are expensive but no more so than many other restaurants in Zurich so you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend Weisses Rossli for a fantastic meal in Zurich if you are in town. Hopefully the chef and the restaurant continue to do great things.
