Not as good as it used to be – a bit disappointing: Restaurant Maison Manesse (4. January 2020)

It’s about three years ago since I’ve last been to the Maison Manesse – and my expectations were accordingly high, given every single time I’ve been there in the past, it was a blast. Now, to state the important things upfront – they aren’t anymore as they used to be. I went for the “I […]

An option for dinner in the vicinity to Theater 11: Restaurant Bits & Bites @ Holiday Inn (21. December 2019)

An option for dinner in the vicinity to Theater 11: Restaurant Bits & Bites @ Holiday Inn (21. December 2019)

Now, honestly, the Bits & Bites is probably not a place I’d usually visit but given I was going to see “The Book of Mormons” in the Theater 11 in Oerlikon which is right across the corner and there aren’t too many options around to get something to eat beforehand, the Bits & Bites it […]

A true institution in Zurich with the traditional twist you’ll love: Restaurant Kronenhalle (21. December 2019)

A true institution in Zurich with the traditional twist you’ll love: Restaurant Kronenhalle (21. December 2019)

It’s approximately 5 years ago since I’ve last been to the Kronenhalle and it remains a great restaurant with a lot of history. Of course, it is a bit heavy in terms of prices and it is very traditional in terms of interior design, decoration, and the way the waiters are dressed. But everything works […]

The Swiss version of a tapas concept: Restaurant Genuss Manufaktur Neubad (19. December 2019)

The Swiss version of a tapas concept: Restaurant Genuss Manufaktur Neubad (19. December 2019)

So far I have only visited the Genuss Manufaktur Neubad for lunch and finally it was time to pay the place a visit for dinner. The concept is quite lovely overall as you basically have the idea of ordering a couple of small dishes and then share them. Which – obviously – doesn’t work for […]

Absolutely perfect lunch offering: Wirtschaft Zur alten Post (19. December 2019)

Absolutely perfect lunch offering: Wirtschaft Zur alten Post (19. December 2019)

The Restaurant Wirtschaft zur alten Post is definitely a place I can still recommend as the food is absolutely delicious and keeps being so. They offer a decent lunch menu for a fair price. I went for a “saffron fennel foam soup with lime oil” (CHF 5.80 as the menu soup) which was not only […]

Perfect understanding of how a business lunch works: Restaurant Bodega Prado (17. December 2019)

Perfect understanding of how a business lunch works: Restaurant Bodega Prado (17. December 2019)

What I like about the Bodega Prado is the fact that they have really understood the concept of ‘business lunch’. For less than CHF 30.00 you get a starter, a main course, as well as a 0.5l water which is really quite amazing. And on top of that, it’s not just a simple “starter salad” […]

Great cheese fondue in a lovely atmosphere: Fondue-Chalet @ Weihnachtsdorf Bellevue (15. December 2019)

Great cheese fondue in a lovely atmosphere: Fondue-Chalet @ Weihnachtsdorf Bellevue (15. December 2019)

The Fondue-Chalet in the Weihnachtsdorf Bellevue is actually quite lovely and much more than what they offer at the Illuminarium at the Landesmuseum. The place works well in terms of organisation and within a few minutes, you’re seated. The good thing is that the tables aren’t that full as they are in the Illuminarium so […]

Good dishes but incompetent service staff: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (12. December 2019)

Good dishes but incompetent service staff: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (12. December 2019)

While the dishes at the MASI wine bar are definitely good, even enjoyable, the service is really not up to the task! Admittedly, the place was rather full when we arrived and we got what seemed to be the last available table with high chairs. Now, not an easy setting but also not impossible to […]
