Restaurant description

On the eastern side of the Lake of Zurich, Restaurant Belcanto serves a wide array of contemporary dishes created with the freshest local ingredients.

Housed in the imposing opera house, Belcanto in Zurich entices guests with its slick interpretations of Zurich gastronomic specialities. Choose from Zurich-style veal in a light cream of mushroom sauce flavoured with Pinot Blanc, with golden brown rösti, or Pappardelle pasta with figs, savoy cabbage and chestnuts, or tuck into grilled venison with a prune and pistachio coating, accompanied by wild chestnuts, ravioli and sprouts in a wild juniper sauce.

Gazing out over the lake, the window seats at Belcanto boast one of the city’s best views. The Belcanto in Zurich is known for its generous glass front, indulgent furniture and artistic lighting that render it bright and modern.

Thanks to its close proximity to the station of Zurich-Stadelhofen, the Belcanto is easily reached on public transport. The picturesque town hall, which is well worth a visit, is a ten-minute walk from Restaurant Belcanto.

    food was ok, no options on vegetables

    Excellent “regular” and seasonal menu & well-doted wine list with affordable bottles (for Swiss restaurants); great for light eaters & evening dining: 1/2 portions available for all favorite dishes — the small portion of the “Wiener Schnitzel” w/ French fries was more than enough; equally excellent and outstanding: one of our party suffers from a food allergy / intolerance and was served with gluten-free bread rolls immediately upon arrival! All in all: for Zürich and it’s infamous price excesses the Belcanto offers good value for your money — the location is right in the heart of the town, the menu with overseeable but well chosen local dishes prove an excellent cuisine / chef, and the waiting staff is simply great. Here, you really get what you pay for — we’ll come back!

    Das Essen war excellent. Die Qualität der Speisen war hochstehend. Die Zusammenstellung und Präsentation der Menues war äusserst fantasievoll. Die Teller waren derart schön angerichtet, dass man das "Kunstwerk" nicht zerstören wollte - aber auch der Gaumen wollte erfreut werden. Der Service war freundlich und aufmerksam, aber nicht aufdringlich und nicht gekünstelt. Hervorragendes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.
