Great Restaurants in Zurich

Are you looking for a restaurant in Zurich where you will enjoy a fantastic dinner? A restaurant where the rates match the service and where the guest still is the king? Visit the websites of our featured restaurants and enjoy your stay in Zurich!

Zurich is one of the cities with the world's best quality of life. The idyllic lakeside location, the beautiful old town, the close distance to the Swiss mountains. All this makes Zurich a worthwhile destination for tourists.

With 340,000 inhabitants, Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland but still an idyllic place to stay. Good food is certainly one of its qualities.

Unfortunately, the attractiveness of Zurich also has its impact on prices, namely from fast food to fine dining. For a grilled sausage you pay 7 francs, for a pizza 22 and a for gourmet meal easily more than 100.

Cheaper meals

Good and cheap pubs with plenty on the plate can still be found in the upper Niederdorf right behind Central. Here you meet especially students from ETH and University of Zurich.

You can also eat quite cheap at Bellevue while enjoying the best view. Just buy a Bratwurst from the Sternen Grill or a curry take-away at the Globus and sit down on the new Sechseläutenplatz or on the benches on the lakefront.

Eating in friendly and alternative style is offered at Ziegel-au-Lac lakeside at Zurich-Wollishofen in the Rote Fabrik.

Traditional Swiss dining

You cannot stay in Switzerland without having once a Cheese Fondue or a Raclette, specially during winter times. A delicious fondue or raclette can be found at the Raclette Stube at Zähringerstrasse in Zurich's Niederdorf or at Restaurant Burgwies at Forchstrasse 271 where the offer many more flavors beside the traditional moitié-moitié.

Also eventful, if not cheap (CHF 93) is the Fondue Tram, which tours around town starting at Bellevue from November until March.

Eating italian

Swiss love italienian cuisine. And one of the best pizzeria of Zurich is called Ristorante Cucina at Konradstrasse close to Limmatplatz.

Vegetarian Restaurants

For those who are not into meat of happy swiss cows the restaurant Hiltl is certainly the best address in Zurich. The famous vegetarian restaurant lies in the heart of the city and has many loyal guests.

Exotic Restaurants

A great thai restaurant is the Blue Monkey at Niederdorf.

Our mexican tip is called Tres Kilos and located at Dufourstrasse behind Zurich's Seefeld.

And a very special experience is the food in the pitch-dark, BlindeKuh. A restaurant run by a blind staff.

Upper class Restaurants

The most expensive places in town are at the Dolder, the Baur au Lac or the Kronenhalle. If you love excellent meat, you should visit the Casa Aurelio. Prices are even more peppered than the steaks, but if you drive a car, you will love the valet parking service in the chronic shortage of parking spaces at Langstrasse Zurich.

Our favorite is the Florhof with excellent menus that always surprise. Also quite tasty, the restaurant Bürgli Wollishofen above the Rote Fabrik. The Clouds in the Prime Tower probably offers the best views of town. The waiting list is sufficiently long and the prices in accordance with the height of the tower. Also with great views, surprisingly good and not so expensive is the restaurant Die Waid on Hönggerberg.
