A perfect vegan date night! - Edit

Our last night in Zurich, my boyfriend and I chose Elle N' Belle as our final meal. We are both music people who LOVE vegan food & cocktails so Elle N' Belle delivered. We were a tad disappointed on the wait to get seated. There wasn't anyone ahead of us and open tables so it was puzzling. Once seated, we were forgotten again as it must've been 10 minutes before we had a server. And, it was another 10 before our beers arrived. Slightly disappointed by the service but we weren't about to give up. I ordered the Irish pot pie and it was absolutely divine. It was savory & scrumptious -- the perfect comfort food as it was cold & rainy outside. My boyfriend ordered the Manson burger. It was definitely a hit too though we'd just had burgers in Italy the week before at half the cost that were just as good. The prices were eye-popping. (~$27 a burger) Still, we brushed it off as Zurich, a town in which I visit often because of family and know to be expensive. Overall, it was a GREAT experience and it was wonderful seeing a full-house of patrons. Alas, I later read on their website that they are closing their doors in Spring 2018 due to their lease coming up. I hope they figure out another avenue because it would be a pity to never be able to visit again.

Pros: Lively atmosphere, Creative cocktail menu, Delicious food

Cons: Slow service, Expensive (but to be expected in Zurich), Closing in Spring 2018 (?!)

Great Vegan Food in Switzerland - Edit

Elle N' Belle was truly a fantastic experience! I visited during a trip to Zurich the last week in November and the food was perfectly seasonal. You MUST try the cheese plate and be sure to ask for drink recommendations. The space is fresh, trendy/hipster, and even is dog friendly! The staff was helpful, friendly, and able make recommendations and answer all questions we had about drinks or the menu. It's definitely worth the trip if you're in Zurich to dine here! Food is amazing!

Pros: Nice atmosphere, Delicious Food, Friendly Staff

Cons: Date night prices

great selection of food - Edit

There were seven interesting and tasty-looking lunch menus to choose from and all looked good. Had a jackfruit pasta and soup, both were good, especially the soup, and the cake and hot chocolate that I had for dessert too.
Lots of space so suitable for big groups.

Pros: good choice of food available, good quality food, friendly service and atmosphere

Abendessen - Edit

Wir meine Partnerin und ich wollten spontan bei Elle n‘Belle zu Abend essen. Da ich früher dort war fragte ich ob ich noch reservieren kann da dies Online nicht mehr möglich war. Die Mittarbeitern schaute kurz nach und fand für uns ein Plätzchen. So konnte ich mit meiner Partnerin ein gemütliches sehr schmackhaftes Essen geniessen.
Schad wird dieses wunderschöne Restaurand mit ihrem gelungenen Konzept bald Geschichte sein. Ich hoffe von ganzen Herzen das Elle n‘ Belle an einem andren Ort wieder aufersteht.

Pros: freundliches Personal, qualitativ und quantitativ sehr gutes essen, sehr innovatives Konzept einer veganen Küche

Cons: suche ich noch

Great food and great vibe - Edit

The restaurant has a great feel to it. We enjoyed hanging by the bar while we waited for our table. The food was great. The pizza appetizer was my group’s favorite. It was closely followed by the cheese platter. For entrees, the burgers were big hits. I had the Manson Burger with “cheez”. The mushroom dish was also given high marks. Our group included both vegans and non- vegans and everyone enjoyed the meal.

I would recommend that you make seating reservations.

Pros: friendly service

Very nicely decorated, delicious food! - Edit

Very nice restaurant, quite big. I discovered it cause I was going to a concert at X-Tra and needed to find somewhere to eat. It was around 5pm so we had to pick something from the "bar menu", so we had some kind of kebab/wrap, which was extremely good and tasty.

Updated from previous review on 2016-05-08

Pros: Close to X-Tra, Nice atmosphere

Cons: A bit out of the city centre

Authentic American Diner - Edit

We were surprised to find such a big (and quite busy) all vegan restaurant in the middle of zurich. It is very cozy and very authentic american diner style.

We had a salad, a cheeze plate and a tartar with sweetpotato fries (uploaded rhe fotos) a red wine and a chai latte. Everything was very delicious and lovely decorated. Staff was very attentive, friendly and fast. :)

We will be back for sure! :)

Pros: Delicious food cool spirit fast and friendly staff

Make sure to visit them! - Edit

Since I was only 2 days in Zürich I had to choose carefully where to go since the city has a lot of great places. I am really glad that I decided to come to this place since it is really amazing.
First of all the decoration indoors and also outdoors is super cool.
Next it has great food-I went there at 3om when they only had a short menu available but nevertheless I took the vegan kebab and it was super tasty. The portion was enermous and the price only 12.5 which is really cheap in Zurich.

I am sad that I had to leave since I would have liked to come back for a burger or a delicious looking cake.

Pros: All vegan place which looks really cool, Great food

Cons: Drinks are a bit pricey

Elle N' Belle is a lovely, all vegan restaurant. The indoor seating is nicely decorated and the staff is very friendly.
Reservation highly recommended, I was there with a friend on a Wednesday evening and it was full.
The menu is awesome, all vegan and provides something for every taste.
We both had the Manson burger (comes with coleslaw and fries) and it was phenomenal. Large portions.

Looking forward to come back ?

modern original vegan restaurant with a young atmosphere - Edit

A must if you are in Zurich. Nice place, nice people. The location is modern, a big place with an intimate atmosphere. The food is very good (I ate a vegan cheeseburger, super!) and all vegan. So, if you're vegan, you can have good food without stress, if you are not vegan the place deserves a visit.

Pros: good food, all vegan, nice atmosphere

Cons: a bit on the pricy side, but we are in zurich

Good food - Edit

Since I've been coming to Zurich for 6 years now, this was my first time going out to a vegan restaurant!

We made a reservation online and came and had a nice seat outside with some privacy, it seemed to be going well. Unfortunately, the restaurant does not provide smoking/non-smoking areas for outside seating, so when a person close to us lit one up, we asked if we could move. This bummed me out a little bit, but the decor inside was nice too so that was ok.

My partner had the wasabi risotto which was really good and the flavours were so deep! I ended up with the Manson burger which came on a black bread. The burger was good, but not excellent. But the chips, those were excellent and some of the best I've ever had! The coleslaw side too was very good.

The staff were ok, not the nicest I've ever met but not the worst either. Maybe I was expecting more due to the price of the food.

I would recommend this place, but beware of smoking if you choose to sit outside and have problems around smoke or just don't like it when eating

Prices were fair/average for Zurich, considered very expensive for any tourist though I would think.

Pros: Good food, Nicely decorated

Cons: No non-smoking outside section

Nice location but way to expensive - Edit

Everybody screams about their fantastic burgers but there is not even a gluten free version. All other dishes are too expensive and not very extraordinary. 50 meters further there is the Samses Restaurant who offers same or better food at reasonable prices. 3 stars for the location. My suggestion: eat at Samses and come here for hanging out.

Elle 'n' Bellissima - Edit

Do you remember when you had that dream of opening a vegan restaurant which sold great food, had funky décor, exuded spirit and friendly atmosphere? Well, while you (and I) were dreaming, Elle 'n' Belle got off their respective backsides and did it.

This place is wonderful. The food is imaginative, delicious and fun; it sells beer; the desserts should be illegal, they're so good....

If you are one of those vegans who believe it's all about earnest, hair-shirt self-denial, stay away. If you want a great night out on the other hand, get down to Elle 'n' Belle's.

Pros: Great food with attitude, Friendly service, I loved the animal rights stickers in the bathroom

Fantastic - Edit

What a cool place. It's the kind of place I wish was in more cities around the world. Big but not uninviting with a nice menu and good service. I was there on a hot June day so I sat out in the sun. What I saw of the inside the decor was nice. I love the rock attitude. The food was quite tasty. I had the chili and their home made ice tea.

Very good food, nice atmosphere, slow service - Edit

The food is delicious here, we had burgers and both were very good. Also the dessert and starters were outstanding. If you're in the area make sure you drop by, it's also the perfect restaurant to go-to with your non-vegan friends. They have a nice garden area to sit outside, we really liked the atmosphere.
The only thing we did not like was the slow service, the waitress was very very friendly, helpful and nice, but the service was slow and more than once we were forgotten by the staff and got our drinks/food late. They apologized but nevertheless it's not nice for a customer. This can surely be improved. Anything else: Perfect :)

Pros: Delicious Food, For everyone, not just vegans, nice atmosphere

Cons: slow service
