Re: Best steaks in Zurich?

The best steak I've had in Switzerland and one of the best we have ever had (including steak houses in Scotland and USA) was the parkhuus restaurant at the grand Hyatt. The flavour of the steak was amazing and you can see them cooking in the open plan kitchen. Very pricey but a very good experience.

There's also Rolli's at Oerlikon - that's more of a hot plate and quantity thing though. It's not bad, but for pure flavour I'd try the parkhuus.

The top 3 steaks I've ever had, all in the US, were in restaurants that had German founders. But I have yet to find a decent steakhouse to that same level in Europe. Yeah, the French have their Cafe de Paris thing and all. But I think that sauce does a disservice to good beef. Such sauces are better suited for mediocre beef.

So I wonder if its is just a coincidence, or do Germans have a hidden talent for steak? Where did Peter Luger, Wolfgang Zwiener and Wolfgang Puck learn to do that to steak? Is there a steak Mecca in Germany?

Not sure if there is a "Best" class steak in CH. A good steak, for sure. But does it truly rank amongst the best?
In fairness, Wolfgang Puck is Austrian, not German. Though I think it is more an immigrant reaction to discovering what a steak should be, and developing a passion for it.

Also, to the OP - Goodman in Zurich. Open thy wallet wide, but know that it is worth it.

Re: Best steaks in Zurich?

Rolli's Oerlikon Branch next to Sternen Oerlikon : simple cooked on stone with real thick chips ( UK definition) and for CH reasonably priced
Service very pleasant , but book ahead or you will be disappointed even as an early walk in.


We have been going for 7 years and some of the staff have been there all that time , and it is always a treat.

Re: Best steaks in Zurich?

Rolli's in Schlieren is also pretty good, they use American beef.

Another one which we like and is not that widely known, is the Steakhouse-Bahnhof Mettmenstetten. Beef is Swiss so not as full flavoured as others, but they are pretty good.

Goodmans and Churrasco are a little overrated in my view. They are ok, but price/value is a little below and the consistency is a little iffey.

Actually I would recommend if you are in Waldshut (DE). Go to the Kaufland and ask for the US Filet, now that is excellent and at EUR 49/kg (sometimes cheaper if on sale) its worth it! Then you can have a great steak at home:-)

Re: Best steaks in Zurich?

we prefer Baerengasse on Bahnhofstrasse to Goodman's.

I've also made steaks at home that were quite good - irish filet from the globus, australian from the viadukt, and t-bone from the coop in dietlikon.

Re: Best steaks in Zurich?

Went to Rolli's last night. Very cute place, loved the fun atmosphere and the food was good. But the steaks are FAR from the best in Zurich. You do need a reservation - only place I've seen that has a line to get in the door at 5pm!

The best place!

« Wer bei mir einen Tisch reserviert, will erstklassiges Fleisch essen », sagt Urs Koffel, Gastgeber im Steakhouse Bahnhof in Mettmenstetten.
« Und zwar perfekt grilliert. Charmant serviert. In stimmungsvollem Ambiente. »
En Guete!

This is all true.

Re: Best steaks in Zurich?

Another thumbs up here for Rolli's in Oerlikon.

Been there a couple of times and had a lovely steak and "thick" cut chips each time.

Love the cosy, homey atmosphere and friendly service.

Re: Best steaks in Zurich? KARIM's WEINBISTRO

Karim has the best Steaks I can imagine. He, an Iranian, does not have a printed menu but explains you what he has. I just yesterday had a superb beef-Steak with an excellent Rioja-wine and at the end a perfect Vecchia Romagna. The steakhouse "Karim's Weinbistro" is located in Zwinglistrasse 6 just accross from the Bongo Indian Restaurant (Bongo is the oldest Indian place in Zürich) and indeed can be recommended, As add-on spices I used pepper and some Balsamico

I've been going to Goodman's for a couple years and the food is consistently great. The atmosphere is of a true steakhouse. Enjoy.

Re: Best steaks in Zurich?

Goodman and Baerengasse take top 2 in my book. Another choice for Cafe de Paris would be Buergli.

Re: Best steaks in Zurich?

I can't believe no one has mentioned Eisenhof in Kreis 5, just round the corner from the Riff Raff cinema (and opposite Maison Blunt). They've been going for years and the interior looks like it hasn't been changed since the 60's but the steaks are great and big.... beef or horse fillet for about 38 chufs, US Ribeye for about 45 I think. All served on a hot stone with fries and dips.

They do salads and burgers too, but I don't know anyone who orders anything but a steak. Ventilation is poor though so it gets quite smoky with all those hot stones later in the evening (but they do have some outside tables for warmer weather).

Re: Best steaks in Zurich?

Jelmoli ZH Bahnhofstrasse food hall; not romantic but invest CHF29 and get a great meal. This alone has saved me more than CHF29 in expensive, spontaneous hunger-purchases around the hall afterwards.

Good spot for people watching on a Saturday lunchtime.
