Hi there, my family was visiting me in Zurich and I reserved a table for a Friday night. The restaurant called me during the day and asked me, if I still want this table and I said yes (which was already a bit weird). The person on the phone said that everything is alright and that we gonna see each... More

Once again the charbonnade has been really good. The meat is served until you can't anymore together with the house fries alumettes and the sauces. The meat quality is good until the end. Price is ok for Zurich, wine card is ok. The service is very friendly as the whole atmosphere. I recommend the place for charbonnade. The only remark... More

It is the perfect place to have a dinner among friends. Location is good, not so far from the very center of the city. Restaurant is not modern, service is good, waiters are working there for many years. The restaurant allow group of people to talk louder. The restaurant is know for charbonnade (grill the meat yourself on the table)... More

It is a meat restaurant with very limited choice of dishes. The main idea is preparing the meat by customers themselves, waiters bring you charcoal grill with thin slices of beef. Also you can have salad, french fries and wine. Everything is very delicious, waiters are great profesionals, interrior is authentic. Highly recommended.

This place came highly recommended, so we decided to check it out. We were quickly seated and our drink orders were taken. This was probably the fastest service we got all night. We ordered three steaks; two Entrecôtes and one Filet de Boeuf au Poivre vert. The filet was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. However, this could not be... More

As a group we enjoyed the entrecôte "à discretion". The meat was good, as was the recommended wine. The service was very friendly although the restaurant was full and the waiters busy.

I have been to this place many times, always to enjoy a Charbonnade with friends. It is all about seasoning and grilling slices of red meat to one's taste and accompanying them with pommes allumettes (matchstick french fries) and a nice array of sauces and condiments. We usually pair the Charbonnade with a Gigondas red wine. The waiters are grumpy... More

Whereas the waiters are of a strange kind of grumpy colored friendliness they are very attentive and do not tire to bring along more excellent meat and straw cut french fries. The price considering the quality of the meat and fries is not cheap but very ok? This place is very well frequented by companies having dinners, so get a... More

This is a place you go to for meat. Anything else is average, sometimes bellow average. I had a soup and a salad here once and would never come back if I didn't try the meat. My favorite is the veal with mustard sauce- the meat melts in your mouth and the sauce is well seasoned and has a nice... More
