Price ✭✭✭✭✩
Expensive but worth every penny.


No. 2 ¦ George Bar & Grill

My number one when it comes to easy-dining. I’m eating here since I work here, that is 10 years now. They’re somehow managing to deliver the same amazing quality of food since than, that deserves my highest respect! Lily’s offers authentic Asian food.

Food ✭✭✭✭✭
Simply the most delicious Asian food in Zurich, same quality since 10 years. Great job!
Wine ✭✩✩✩✩
Disappointing. Though there is tea or beer from Zurich
Service ✭✭✭✩✩
Mainly young people, nothing special to mention.
Ambiance ✭✭✭✩✩
The open kitchen makes the ambiance here. Else, the seats inside are rather uncomfortable and the noise outside is pretty intense.
Highest score, the prices are very fair.


No. 4 ¦ 4Leoni

Here you’ll get the best steak in town. The magic word? ‘Bistecca Fiorentina’. It actually origins from Firenze, though is perfectly done here in Zurich.

Food ✭✭✭✭✭
The steak from Firenze is simply the best in the world and doesn’t lose any charm and quality here.
Wine ✭✭✭✭✩
Small but mighty, mainly Italian wines.

Mal freundlich, mal ein bisschen weniger aber alles in allem sehr authentisch.
