REGIONALITÄT & QUALITÄT
Manchmal ist das Bekannte & Simple eben das Beste, denn manchmal weckt gerade das Erinnerungen an früher und wir können nicht genug davon bekommen. Wir lieben die Verbindung von Gastfreundschaft und gutem Essen. Die Küche legt viel Wert auf Saisonalität, Regionalität und Qualität, um bekannte und klassische Gerichte umzusetzen.

    The live music was lovely but just a bit too loud. The waitresses were attentive and friendly. The food was ok not exactly what I would call find dining but not bad tasting. Overall it’s a nice atmosphere and very pretty restaurant. Thank you to the performers for doing happy birthday for my guest that was very lovely :)

    Nice people, but they didn’t come back! The simple food we ordered was average and over priced for even Zurich. We were disappointed in the dining, but we still were grateful for the smiles on the way in and out.

    Went on the Thursday, when they have live music. The band was good and not too intrusive. Service was excellent and the food also very good. Would for sure go again

    Service was inattentive borderline rude. The food was good but nothing in Zurich is cheap so if you are going to spend a lot it would be nice to have a waiter who is more pleasant.

    The food was good but the service was absolutely terrible. It ruined the experience because the waiter was just horrible. Never checked on us. Did not provide it when we asked for some cheese for our pasta. Overall, the food is not worth the horrible service AND the place was relatively empty so it wasn’t that he had so much to do.

    The only complaint was the once the restaurant became busy the time it took take the order for dessert and to deliver the dessert was twenty to thirty minutes, which became frustrating after a while. One or two more waiters/waitresses would have been efficient. In addition to the above the Restaurant was out of Rice? How can that be? Simply pop out to the local Supermarket for an emergency supply.

    My husband and I had dinner here and it was just phenomenal. The staff was friendly and welcoming, helpful with suggestions and attentive. Lukas was our server and he is wonderful. If you go there - he will take care of you!The food was amazing, I wish I had enough room to eat the large portion of mountain cheese ravioli but the small was a good suggestion with an appetizer. The ambiance is nice for a date, special occasion, or just going out for a nice dinner during the week.

    The restaurant is in a hotel at the corner of a busy street, nothing to look at and noisy, it’s really a tourist trap, we asked for Tap water, and they brought us a pitcher, and charged us over $10 for the water! It came with a salad, they “confirmed” if salad was o.k, the. Charged us for a salad, The entrecôte was tough, and nothing to write about, Do not recommend

    Second time I went there, and it just isn’t worth the money. Traditional menu, which is okay but not very creative, with prices way too high for what they’re offering.

    I am disappointed. I had a high expectations for the menu since I’d been following their insta account for a while. However, the menu was nothing like what I had hoped for - burgers, green salad and fish & chips? For 100CHF per person? I don’t think so. My beef tartare was way too salty, and the dessert choice was so poor, we just ended up not having it. A brownie in a fancy place is not what I feel like. Anyways, I won’t be back and I don’t recommend it.

    We went for a dinner for two and were very much satisfied. Very nice and helpful waiters. Good food (tapas as starter and mussels “à discretion”). Nice ambiance. A bit expensive but in the average for Zürich. Would definitely recommend.

    Eher kleine Karte, die mit ein paar Saisonspezialitäten ergänzt wird. Essen war insgesamt sehr fein, das Zürcher Geschnetzelte könnte etwas würziger sein für meinen Geschmack. Aufmerksamer Service und gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis für Zürich, auch bei der Weinauswahl.

    Ich war schon zum dritten Mal bei Max & Otto und erneut einfach begeistert! Das Essen ist wirklich lecker und man versteht es auch super, auf Unverträglichkeiten (wie Gluten) einzugehen. Aber was mir immer besonders auffällt, ist der grossartige Service von Kellner Lukas und Co. – so fröhlich und freundlich. Gerne wieder!!!
