“Average (for what it is trying to be)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

I was with some friends and we were eating from the tasting menu. This is 6 courses and you can choose to have 3,4,5 or 6. Additionally there was an amouse bouche.

I have to say that for the price and target audience it was average. The flavours were not all there. There was a lot of jelly on the dishes. For example there was a goose liver pate dish, with an apply jelly served on sliced tuna. The tuna was drowned out by the pate and I didn't get the apple flavor from the jelly.

Not sure that I would go back again to be honest. I still think there is gap in the Zurich market for some good creative cooking.

“Nice meal in the charming vicinity of Zurich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

We enjoyed a meal at the very nice Rico's Kunstuben in Kusnacht. With friends, we found the service first and foremost to be friendly and not too stuffy. The food was also deserving of mentions with a wonderfully executed beef on lentils. We were not asked for our cooking preference it was all for the better as the beef came with a melt-in-the-mouth quality. The set lunch was most enjoyable if not a bit pricey but hey, this is Swtizerland and you do not go to a 2 stars for a cheap lunch.

Well worth a try if you are visiting Zurich and do not mind short trip to a Kusnacht. You can either take the train from Zurich HB or enjoy a boat ride.

“Creative menu, Attentive service, Wonderful atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

I enjoyed every moment at Rico's Kunststuben, which has great creativity and attention to details, without being pretentious. We were there in the summer and enjoyed the outdoor patio.

“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

We had lunch at Rico's on Saturday afternoon. The food is so pretty I was moved to take pictures of it. Every dish tasted wonderful and was so creatively and beautifully presented. The tasting menu was so flexible. You could choose between 3 and 8 items and add to the list. I would absolutely go again. The room was cozy and stylish, and the service friendly and attentive. Rico came out to speak to us, a nice touch. Great experience!

“Good lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2012 via mobile

The lunch menu is very attractive, the dinner menu too, but just a bit too expensive. If you go for à la carte then be prepared to pay big money! Service was great, very friendly. I would go back for lunch.
