Ridiculous wine prices

When I studied the prices on the wine list I first thought they were magnum bottles, but no, they are 7.5dl bottles. Very few wines are priced below CHF 100, most cost between CHF 200 and 400 per bottle, mind you for average wines. When I found a bottle of Pinot Grigio on the wine list for over CHF 200, I almost had to laugh. This pricing policy is really a rip-off, so I'm deducting a star from my rating.

Apart from that, the food was very tasty and creative, definitely worthy of the Michelin star. Overall, however, the dishes were too greasy for me. Serving fried sweet potatoes covered in a thick sauce is too much for my taste. Nevertheless, it was a great experience and I enjoyed dishes that I never had before.

The restaurant is a big hype at the moment, so make sure to book a table in advance.

Deserves 5 stars!!!!

I had their vegan tasting menu experience with wine pairings. This was the single best meal I have ever eaten! Incredible location, delicious food and the staff was phenomenal. This is a must if you are going to Zurich and eating michelin star food!

Pros: Tasting menu , Vegan forward, Great service

High end veggie experience

Cosy tavern with refined food. They are vegetarian but have a vegan menu. Food is seasonal, creative, changes every week or two, and delicious.

Great, great food experience. Worth being 4 in order to order of everything on the menu.

Non alcoholic cocktails were a bit disappointing.

Fancy Food

Lots of vegan options for this fine dining restaurant which is vegetarian. I opted for the expensive (100 chf) 7 course tasting menu. While each phase of the meal was well done and delicious, there was not one protein source. No tofu, tempeh, etc. Moreover, as an athlete, I need food. I actually left the restaurant hungry.

Pros: Many vegan options

Cons: Very expensive, Tasting menu has very small portions

Get the vegan tasting menu

Great price / value. 100chf for a 5 course vegan tasting menu. Food was super nice and, in contrast to so many places in Zurich , the staff was amazing. If Happy Cow would allow me, Id give them 5 stars

Special vegan menu

We had the vegan 4 course menu which was absolutely special, experimental and worth it, because it’s not the cheapest place in Zürich, but the food is such a positive surprise in amazing taste, also different & new taste explosions, that’s why I can highly recommend this place to everyone who is looking for a special vegan evening

Pros: The tofu schnitzel

Creative menu

This place is largely vegetable based and groups the menus by the way they were prepared (fermenting, roasting, cooking). The vegan selection is extensive, although reduced at lunchtime. I tried the bread with "Tunke", a paste, which was creative and featured excellent warm bread. My main course (though they don't use those labels) was Tagliolini with Shimeji mushrooms, the only vegan main dish at lunchtime, which was an interesing Fusion variant but not quite as good as the starter. No vegan dessert at lunchtime; at dinnertime you have many more options including desserts.

Pros: Creative cuisine

Cons: Not too much selection at lunchtime
