I started the blog in October 2009, while living in Milan which I definitely consider to be one of the food capitals of the world. I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems! If you know a place worth going, please drop a line to: info@thediningexperience.org.
Currently, I am a member of the following food-related associations: Chevalier @Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Zurich-Ville; Membre Gourmet Dégustateur @Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Dégustateurs [OMGD]; Gesellschafter @Goldener Fisch and Member @Slowfood Convivium Zurich City.

After this experience – not a deserved Michelin star: Restaurant Marc Fosh (24. February 2020)

The Marc Fosh sounded incredibly promising when I read about the place on the Guide Michelin App 2020 but it turned out that it isn’t as promising as it reads. I went for the “Marc Fosh” tasting menu (EUR 92.00 if you take all the courses) which started with a “wild mushroom and truffle cappuccino” […]

Resort experience in every aspect: Restaurant La Terrassa @ Marriott’s Club Son Antem (24. February 2020)

The La Terrassa is a simple restaurant in the Marriott’s Club Son Antem which also acts as the golf restaurant of the resort. There is a little terrace (as the name of the restaurant would suggest) where you can sit outside but it kind of lacks atmosphere. We were able to order, as we were […]

An exquisite lunch offering with great service: Restaurant Quadrat & Garden (23. February 2020)

An exquisite lunch offering with great service: Restaurant Quadrat & Garden (23. February 2020)

The Quadrat was a recommendation from the Guide Michelin 2020 app and I must say, a very good one. For lunch, they offered the “menu arroces” (EUR 24.50) which was basically three small bites, a rice dish of your choice plus a dessert. The starters were “fish fritters with vegetables in Mallorcan style” and “smoked […]

Decent option in Son Antem: Restaurant La Finca Son Antem (22. February 2020)

Decent option in Son Antem: Restaurant La Finca Son Antem (22. February 2020)

The La Finca Son Antem is located in the Marriott Vacation Club and can only be accessed through the main gate – security isn’t really tight though. Once you’ve arrived, you are welcomed by a nice building which emits somehow a kind of antique feeling. The waiters were friendly and super swift although we hadn’t […]

Great business lunch offering in a nice setting: Restaurant Smith and de Luma (21. February 2020)

Since I’ve recently been to the Smith and de Luma for an event (MEAT Academy), I decided to give it a try again for a regular lunch. And I must say that it is a place I can absolutely recommend. They offer a lunch menu for CHF 32.00 starting with a “cauliflower soup” which was […]

Great location but overpriced omelets: Restaurant Bohemia (20. February 2020)

Great location but overpriced omelets: Restaurant Bohemia (20. February 2020)

Breakfast for champions is what you get at the Bohemia – but for Swiss prices! I went for the “Havanna omelet (chorizo, tomato cubes, cheddar, sour cream, home-made bread)” (CHF 22.00) which was quite a large omelet and which was also rather tasty all in all. However, CHF 22.00 for an omelet (I mean, it’s […]

Overrated but still decent: Restaurant Gaijin Izakaya (19. February 2020)

Recent reviews of the Gaijin Izakaya hyped the place quite a bit. While I personally consider it nice and good, it isn’t as great as it seemed (when reading other reviews). The place is super full so booking in advance is a must. Once you’ve secured a table, make sure to not bring much as […]

An absolutely well-orchestrated business lunch offering: Restaurant Coco Grill & Bar (19. February 2020)

It is a while ago since I’ve been to Coco’s for lunch but I must say that they offer a decent business lunch menu (CHF 38.50). I like the concept that they offer the menu only orally and you don’t get a huge variety of different dishes as the selection is small but accordingly good […]
