Lovely garden but the slowest service ever: Restaurant Krone Altstetten (21. June 2017)

I have been to the Krone Altstetten in the past but actually never had the pleasure to have lunch in their garden – but it was finally time for it. I went for the regular lunch menu (CHF 30.00) which consisted of a cold “cucumber melon soup” which looked very small at first but turned […]

The perfect location for a refreshing summer dinner: Restaurant Brasserie Freilager (20. Juni 2017)

As it was another hot summer day, I decided to go for something light and refreshing like the “melon gazpacho” (CHF 12.00) and it was actually very refreshing and pleasant, better than I had expected. Frankly, I haven’t tried veal tartare so far but I was definitely ready for it, so I went for the […]

Way more than just a grill close to Bellevue: Restaurant Sternen Grill (14. June 2017)

Way more than just a grill close to Bellevue: Restaurant Sternen Grill (14. June 2017)

Honestly, in my head the ‘Sternen Grill’ has somehow always been saved as a standard grill close to Bellevue. And I’ve actually never eaten here. Well, there is always something new to learn, right? So, upstairs there is a restaurant – you can’t book a table in advance so it helps to be there early […]

Amazing atmosphere on the terrace – especially on a hot summer day: Restaurant TAO’s (13. June 2017)

Amazing atmosphere on the terrace – especially on a hot summer day: Restaurant TAO’s (13. June 2017)

Given its location, the TAO’s is definitely not one of the cheaper places in Zurich. However, at least for lunch, you can mange to find something decent, so I went for the “TAO’s Caesar salad with romain lettuce, egg, avocado, and ginger sesame dressing” (CHF 22.00) which was a decent portion and a light and […]

Lovely surprises on the menu – with varying service quality: Restaurant Brasserie Freilager (12. June 2017)

Lovely surprises on the menu – with varying service quality: Restaurant Brasserie Freilager (12. June 2017)

The good thing about the Restaurant Brasserie Freilager is the fact that they keep putting new dishes on the menu – given I come here quite often. Today I started with a “prosecco foam soup with caramelized nectarine” (CHF 15.00). While the prosecco foam soup really isn’t anything new I liked the nectarine taste – […]

Always a great lunch opportunity during the working week: Restaurant Accademia del Gusto (12. June 2017)

Always a great lunch opportunity during the working week: Restaurant Accademia del Gusto (12. June 2017)

The Accademia del Gusto definitely belongs to the better restaurants in Zurich – also for lunch. However, one has to be aware that the price is not necessarily at the lower end of the range. Still, it is absolutely worth paying for it. Today, I started with a “tatar di tonno con pomodori, cetrioli e […]

Quite a unique experience – the pop-up: Fabrik du Goût (10. June 2017)

The “Fabrik Du Goût” is a pop up event organized by the same guy who organizes “Secret Dinner” events. And the concept is well thought through – from entrance to the final round. It is quite simple – you book in advance and pay CHF 110.00 for the pre-determined menu (although you don’t know at […]

A truly traditional event – Solstice d’été @ Restaurant Widder (9. June 2017)

About two years back I used to attend events from the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs quite often but recently I haven’t been able to attend any events – finally it was time again. The event of celebrating midsommar called Solstice d’été was taking place – as every year – in the Restaurant Widder accompanied by the […]
