Website or App for restaurant reviews in CH

In the US everyone uses Yelp to find a good restaurant, In Australia, everyone seems to use Urbanspoon. I really like using these websites to find places to eat, because then I'm pretty sure I'm going to get a good meal. With lots of people writing reviews, you can harness the power of the crowd to filter out all the crap.

Is there a website or app that Swiss people use, similar to Yelp or Urbanspoon? I'm not really talking about Gault Milleau because that is not user generated, and seems to be more oriented towards very fancy restaurants.

Yeah, TripAdvisor seems to have a solid amount of restaurants and reviews. Thanks!

How about http://www.foodguide.ch The reviews there are user generated and honest.
There is a iPhone app for foodguide as well: http://en.menuapp.ch

http://www.yelp.com/ just started in Switzerland about 2 years ago, so you can start looking for stuff on Yelp. Of course, it's a work-in-progress, so I'm actively contributing my experiences here, and hopefully the site will grow with time.

In Switzerland we don't use TripAdvisor or LonelyPlanet as they are more for tourists. The best is iTaste.com or resto-rang.ch. Most of reviews are from local people.
