recommendation for a good restaurant in Zurich

Hi everyone,

could you recommend me a a good restaurant in Zurich (italien, mexican, swiss)? We have already tried a couple and in most cases were not happy. I am not looking for something fancy, just the german style dinner with a sausage is not what i strive for.

Thanks,
M

Re: recommendation for a good restaurant in Zurich

Hi there,

The search box is in the upper right corner of your screen. There are dozens of threads with restaurant recommendations in Zurich.

https://www.englishforum.ch/search2....taurant+zurich

Two of the most obvious that fit your requirements:

Where can you find cheap Mexican food in Zurich?
Is there an authentic mid-market Italian restaurant in Zurich region?

Re: recommendation for a good restaurant in Zurich

Where to start? Most common suggestion it is, then..

"Bodega Espagnola" is very down to Earth Tapas place, right in the Niederdörfli, and - for Zürich - fairly affordable.

Don't let yourself being fooled by Google's 3.8/5, plenty of tourists rate the place down because "it's too expensive"..

Another very, very down to Earth place, but it's in Lucerne (but honestly, that's 50min by train, in other cities that's just the other side of town) is the Restaurant/Bar St.Magdalena. It's a VERY "original" place, only Swiss visitors (despite right in the middle of the tourist area! But no Korean, no Arab, no Chinese or no Japanese has ever been brave enough to enter ) it serves a good mix of food. Nothing fancy, but just comfort food. At surprisingly low prices. It's a bit alternative, but not too much.

http://www.magdalena.ch/kueche

Are you into Portuguese food too? Some gems exists, but mostly in the suburbs. "Rössli/Pinto" in Wetzikon is truly great, especially for seafood and wine. And their buffets (a few times a year) are something to die for.

Italian/Swiss food obviously is abundant in Zürich, not really worth to give good suggestions, nothing that you can't really work out with TripAdvisor or just going on "random search" when Google Maping

Beware of completely "fake Mexicans" like "Tres Amigos", etc. (couple of those chains exist..)

A few places worth mentioning are the "La Taqueria", "El Luchador" and the "Tacos Plaza" (Near EscherWyys)

I personally don't like the "Tres Kilos" too much (Seefeld), but I know plenty of people who love it. Feels overpriced for what it is.

As I'm going to visit Zurich soon, this information is very useful for me. Thanks, guys!
Have a nice trip here then. We usually don't bite, and if you fancy a "local" city tour, I'm fairly sure quite some forum members will be available in exchange for a beer or two

I will also recommend Hilt, one of the first vegetarian restaurant in the western world.

I took lots of friends there and nobody was disappointed

Re: recommendation for a good restaurant in Zurich

If you are interested in good English/American food try Fork and Bottle, a little way out past Sihlcity but it's run by (iirc) an English/American couple. Good short ribs!
