Acknowledged by the WWF and the Guide blue for its organic dishes and outstanding cuisine, the restaurant Opera in the Hotel Ambassador in Zurich has become an institution for health-conscious diners and opera-lovers alike.

Constantly reinterpreting regional specialties and international dishes, Opera’s specialty revolves around fish, which are sourced from sustainable fisheries. With a broad menu, imagine everything from langoustine cream soup with cognac, organic rack of Bernese lamb with thyme jus as well as homemade savarin with rum and a delicate ricotta mousse filling.

Luxuriously dignified, the restaurant Opera appeals with its four-course menu and tasting portions. This restaurant in Zurich has been transformed into a surrealist piece of Baroque art by the artist Tatjana Tiziano, rendering Opera an inimitable experience, where romanticism and art intertwine.

Next door to the Hotel Ambassador in the Seefeld district stands the famous Opera House. The lakeside promenade is the ideal place for an evening stroll, soaking up the city’s atmosphere. Within five minutes from the restaurant Opera you’ll Zurich’s old town and exclusive boutique-lined street of Bahnhofstrasse.

    Sehr freundlicher Empfang. Interessante kleine Karte mit speziellen Gerichten. Küchenqualität hervorragend. Freundlicher und kompetenter Service. Wand-und Deckenbemalung ist gewöhnungdbedürftig

    Die Suppe hervorragend, das Tartst ebenfalls. Der Toadt dazu mangelhaft, schwammig und bleichgesichtig. Das Zuerichgeschnetzelte mit Orangen Beigeschmack: doch etwas gewoehungsbefuerftig obwohl das Fleisch sehr zart war. Die Roesti trocken und angebrannt.
    Wein Service mangelhaft: es wurde nur auf Berlangen nachgeschenkt.

    Stilvolles Ambiente, gut passende, indirekte Beleuchtung, Tische nicht zu nahe beieinander.
    Die Bedienung erfolgte durch 2 Personen, wobei eine sehr aufmerksam war und uns bestens beraten hat. Der jüngeren Angestellten fehlte etwas die Erfahrung bzw Patzer wie vergessene Servietten sollten nicht vorkommen.
    Amuse bouche sehr fein, Rindsfilet butterzart, allerdings etwas zu viel Rauchgeschmack, welcher den Fleischgeschmack übertönt hat.
    Weinempfehlung war bestens.

    We were in a group of 6 and have chosen very different plates. The soup and salad were excellent. Meat and fish were of excellent quality. Besides some dishes for tourists they serve very fine, extraordinary dishes with surpriseing combination. The desserts are all very delicious. We enjoyed it.

    Service is very friendly and excellent food. The tartar was very good.

  • ((*** 20 December 2017 by Werner Grunau from Meilen / Zurich

    Friendly reception. Small restaurant but nice and cosy ambient. Enough space between tables and no noise from neighbouring tables.
    Embarassing menu (list) with confusing listing of meals e.g. no clear distinction between first and main dishes. Very small choice of dishes. Difficulties to find an appropriate meal. Fine presentation of dishes and friendly waitress service. "boaring" wine list with too high prices for most of the wines esp. Swiss wines are by far too expensive. Over all relation between prices and performances not optimal.

    Unique in terms of freshness, quality and taste! Catfish from the early morning catch in lake Zurich, fresh-made Gniocci and seasonal vegetables from the region - just perfect!
