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.

    At the moment this is the best fine cuisine restaurant in Zuerich regarding quality of food, wine, service and with focus on value for money. The chef is a very interesting cook who adds special spices and herbs from the local forests to the dishes. The service is outstandingly attentive. Really excellent.
