“Exceptional Experience”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

We missed our connecting flight and had to overnight in Zurich. Fortunately we met a man at the airport's Swiss lounge who recommended Jdaburg restaurant. Upon arrival we met the owner who was so accommodating as the menu was only in German. He took the time to translate each item even though every seat of this intimate spot was taken on a Friday night.

Deliciously designed menu featuring Swiss items and pasta as well. The meat dishes cooked perfectly - lamb to die for! Vegetarian options also delicious. The menu worked for the cold weather. An excellent wine list as well.

In the summer the restaurant features a small patio which would be lovely as I'm certain the menu changes seasonally. Cannot wait to dine again.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 25 May 2012 via mobile

Lovely summer night, so we sat outside - great ambience. Food was superb - the meat was soooo tender, absolutely delicious. Unusual and creative combinations of ingredients, eg jasmine in creme brûlée; beetroot ravioli. A little pricey but you get what you pay for (it is Zurich after all!) - it was delicious! Service attentive, personal and accommodating. Definitely would return.

“Worth it!”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

This restaurant has great food and a very personal service. The interior is designed with love and care though a similarity with the Zentraleck close by is obvious (wich is not ment to sound negative). The food is fresh and saisonal. The steaks are great so is their Cordon Bleu. It's in a residential area that has become more and more lively over the past years and offers nice bars at the Idaplatz. If you are looking for a cute restaurant away from the touristy and overcrowded places in the Niederdorf, this is for you!

“Under new management - but still a gem”
Reviewed 6 October 2010

The place is not longer run by Mathias Hunziker. But Daniel and Anne (Guest care) and Glenn (Kitchen) do an excellent job as well. The menu is rather small, but everithing is cooked very fresh to perfection. I'm not sure, but i think they don't serve "à la carte" for lunch, but offering a daily changing business lunch instead.
Booking is highly recommendet at all time, as the place is very small and can be very busy.
(@tripadvisor-admin: The homepage www.jdaburg.ch is missing whitin the "restaurant details")
