The location is excellent, this used to be a railway building next to Oerlikon station in Zurich which was physically moved away when the station was expanded. The bar offers a good selection of drinks and has standing tables and stools. The staff are good, and allowed me to charge my phone at the bar (which is nice). For the... More

I always enjoy a drink after work at the place, especially in good weather. Very friendly service and nice environment. I tried once the burger and it is amazing. I believe ti is one of the best in Zurich!

Further the nice outside seating arrangements deceivingly beckon.. . however, the food, unfortunately is not of equal quality at all.. rather the opposite. Sadly, the fare is overpriced and tasteless. I ordered a Cesar salad and requested... More

For a more formal dinner you can access to the Resturant area, while for an informal dinner the bistrot area, including tables outside, is available.

The bar and informal dining area feels cosy and atmospheric thanks to the brickwork and lower lighting. Food choice is limited, but the portions are big. I usually end up with the penne with chicken breast which is tasty and filling. Service is good, table service as is normal in Switzerland. Good choice if you are in the area, but... More
