A group of ten, we were welcome with the old Austrian hospitality-I almost felt a bit like on Ski holiday! There were a few linguistic problems along the way like me and the waiter not agreeing on what "caffè latte" meant (what I interpret as a synonym for 'Schale', he took to mean a Latte Macchiato). But I really can't... More

We went there for a business dinner in a group. The setting is very nice in the renovated mill. The service was a bit rough and quite pushy, not giving time to decide. The recommendation was for the roast beef, which most of us ordered. It was good, but nothing exceptional and definitely expensive, even for Zurich standards. Considering it... More

One of the places in Zurich where the staff is super friendly. They have nice little starters that don't fill you up that much. You will need the space for the enormous schnitzel they serve. I think it is the house specialty as it is sooo good. I have never tried a different main course in all the times I... More

Our office is close by so many of our business lunches lead to Blaue Ente. We can't get enough of their Wiener Schnitzel. It's a lovely place in the Mühle Tiefenbrunnen complex surrounded by historic walls, creative people and the lake close by. Their service is outstanding and I never had to complain about their food. Super delicious and every... More

The place is very nice and the food good, but in my opinion the portions are small. We tried the steak tartar (main dish, which is supposed to be the bigger) and it was really small. The same with the roast beef. The service was not excessively special. We asked for more bread (they brought 3 small slices for two... More

Our second visit in 3 months once again we were not disappointed. our food and wine were very good. Our waiter was friendly and helpful and knowledgeable on the the food and wine. Though not busy the service was a little slow but nevertheless it did not detract from our meal, will definitely return.

Ambiente was very nice. Great place in summer to sit outside. Had a business lunch, sat inside. It is a very nice locale with a simple menu and just a handful of choices. I prefer this over 15 page menu novels. The food was very good, the portions just right for me. A fresh loaf of bread was served with... More
