Authentic location but not persuading Italian dishes: Restaurant La Baracca (8. January 2020)

The La Baracca remains a reliable place for good Italian food. Once you’re seated, you get a little plate of pizza slices which are simple yet nice. We went – as a starter – for a plate of cold cuts and some burrata which offers a nice selection of different, tasty Italian cured meats. The […]

Delicious lunch menu – even serving boar: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (8. January 2020)

Delicious lunch menu – even serving boar: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (8. January 2020)

Somehow, the MASI remains a good address for lunch as they manage to provide you with a tasty lunch and a swift business lunch experience. Today, they started with a simple amuse bouche which was basically a mini caprese with an olive on top. The soup of the day was a “cauliflower soup with chive” […]

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

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)

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 […]

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)

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 […]

When the second visit to the same place is massively better than the first one: Restaurant Tremondi (11. December 2019)

When the second visit to the same place is massively better than the first one: Restaurant Tremondi (11. December 2019)

The last time I was at the Restaurant Tremondi, I was highly disappointed. However, given I wasn’t the one responsible for the reservation, I was ‘forced’ to go again. This time with a completely different result! Once we had placed our order (which the waiter needed some time to take it up), we got served […]
