A truly unique Italian experience where you wouldn’t expect it: Restaurant Grottino 1313 (16. August 2017)

Probably for more than three years I was trying to pay the Restaurant Grottino 1313 a visit but never actually made it. Finally, it was time to do so. When the weather is nice, you’re seated in a small but lovely decorated garden and shortly after you’ve taken your seat, you are served “salame and […]

Great for a brief snack: Restaurant Peperoncini (16. August 2017)

Great for a brief snack: Restaurant Peperoncini (16. August 2017)

Sometimes, things happen out of a ‘pure need’. This time for example, I haven’t been eating anything the whole day until 2pm and before I was able to get to the next appointment, I desperately had to eat something so I ended up in the Peperoncini as it was close to my next appointment. And […]

Close to perfect lunch service – as swift as you could hope for: Restaurant Pizzeria Pisco (10. August 2017)

Close to perfect lunch service – as swift as you could hope for: Restaurant Pizzeria Pisco (10. August 2017)

The quickest and most customer oriented lunch I’ve had in quite a while. Between meetings we’ve had a short break allowing us to go for lunch with only a limited time span at hand. Stating that we had to be gone only 30 minutes later, the waitress sped up quite substantially. The “menu salad” which […]

Decent lunch with not entirely perfect timing: Restaurant Wirtschaft zur Alten Post (3. August 2017)

Decent lunch with not entirely perfect timing: Restaurant Wirtschaft zur Alten Post (3. August 2017)

I cannot remember how many years ago I’ve last been to this place – but it is definitely more than 8 years ago. And I somehow had kept a blurry but good memory of it and I was not disappointed. For lunch, I went for the “cold melon cucumber with ginger soup” (CHF 4.80) which […]

Absolutely delicious dishes and caring service: Restaurant Didi’s Frieden (26. July 2017)

It is a couple of years ago since I’ve last dined at the Restaurant Didi’s Frieden but I have had good memories. So it was time to give it another try. Given we increased the booking by one person only shortly before the reservation, they were not really able to increase the booking as the […]

Great service and very good dishes: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (25. July 2017)

Great service and very good dishes: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (25. July 2017)

In the past, I’ve mostly paid the MASI Wine Bar a visit for lunch. Today, it was time to do so in the evening and I went for a “beef tartare – classically prepared” (CHF 45.00). Frankly, for its size and its taste I consider it overpriced. The tartare wasn’t bad at all but it […]

Cheap lunch offering – decent but nothing extraordinary: Restaurant Farnsburg (25. July 2017)

Cheap lunch offering – decent but nothing extraordinary: Restaurant Farnsburg (25. July 2017)

Whenever I’m eating in another city than Zurich in Switzerland I realize how expensive things are. For only CHF 25.50, you get quite a bargain for lunch starting with a salad which is rather standard though to be honest. The “grilled beef entrecôte served with a Sauce Hollandaise with French fries and vegetables” is better […]

Good and always changing dishes but weak service: Restaurant Brasserie Freilager (24. July 2017)

Good and always changing dishes but weak service: Restaurant Brasserie Freilager (24. July 2017)

Luckily, the Restaurant Brasserie Freilager changes its menu from time to time. I went for the “grilled Secreto Iberico (hidden filet from the Iberico pork) served with Mediterranean stove vegetables with potatoes” (CHF 42.00). While the meat is aromatic, the consistency is something you have to get used to a bit. It is definitely tasty […]
