Hiltl was so yummy! My only concern is that there were SO many choices. We did the lunch buffet and it is weighed for purchase. If it isn't packed I would walk around to check out all of the selection before beginning to put food...More

When traveling, I usually crave fresh veggies and a meal that will leave me refreshed but satisfied. Enter: Hiltl. This is the most hip "deli style" place ever, with the most worldly gourmet offerings. From samosa to fresh pesto, to meat alternatives to spring rolls,...More

First thing first, I'm not a veggies person at all! But this restaurant satisfied me in every way! I didn't feel like I was eating vegetarian food at all. You have so many choices with this restaurant and you don't need to be vegetarian to...More

You really have to go here because you want a ton of variety in the vegetarian meal space. Plus, for Switzerland it is as cheap as it gets for a meal. They have wine, but quite a limited selection. The atmosphere is basically a cafeteria....More

Restaurant was really crowded on a weekday at dinner time. The variety of the buffet spread is fantastic. Food and ingredients used are good quality but as with most things in Switzerland, it is rather pricey. Plates are weighed and charged at 4.50 CHF per...More

I had breakfast at Hiltl today. I've been traveling in Swizerland for almost 2 weeks, eating lots of cheese, bread, and potatoes. Hiltl was a welcome change, with tons of ethnic options, fruits, veggies, casseroles, curries, etc. I loved the jackfruit curry, but everything I...More

Very extensive menu of vegetarian dishes. We ordered a la carte instead of the buffet. The food was delicious and couldn't believe everything was vegetarian.

Often a very busy place. If you can get a quiet table then ok. Food and service are good. To visit this restaurant is a must when you are in Zuerich.
