Let´s be straight. This is a bar and not a restaurant - the Brasserie Lipp is just downstairs. But it has - to my mind - one of the finest views across Zurich that you could wish for, better than the Uniturm, which you can get to only if you´re a member of the university or their guest, or Clouds, that requires financial clout.

Instead, we find a tiny little round bar with small tables all facing out onto the town. Choose one from which to look out over the lake and (if you´re lucky) the Alps, and perhaps choose a time early in the evening before things get too crowded and they turn up the music. Prices are not cheap, but for once, they´re probably justified.

For guests who don´t know Zurich this might be a surprise, and for those who do, it´s a fresh perspective on this little city.

The view is the best in town. Their drinks and snacks are good, but the staff is quite unfriendly. They don't accept reservations, so make sure you have enough time to wait until a place is available, but it's definitely worth it.

This is really a bar, not a restaurant. There is really nothing special about the drink offerings or service, but it's worth a visit to see the beautiful views of Zurich. It can be crowded, so you might want to avoid happy hour.

It can be a bit hard to find, so here are some tips. It's one floor below the observatory, and you enter through the elevators that can be accessed by walking through Brasserie Lipp.

We went here for drinks on a Saturday night. It was a little hard to find the bar, as you enter through a restaurant. The bar was rather crowded but the service was fast and friendly and the drinks we had were excellent. The views from the observatory were very good and gave a good feel of the city.

Jules Verne offers a very good wine selection and a superb view over the old town of Zurich. As the place is rather small, a reservation is recommended.
