High above the Swiss city of Zurich on the slopes of the Zürichberg, the restaurant R21, housed in the Hotel Zürichberg, awaits guests for its delectable gourmet cuisine, uniting French and Swiss influences within the modern ambiance of the hotel.

From saddle of lamb with truffle jus, green beans and spätzli to Zurich-style, thinly-sliced veal with rösti, and not forgetting the nori-wrapped monkfish and salmon roulade with tarragon sauce and black sepia taglioni, R21 has a menu that leaves diners more than satisfied. Sophisticated and passionate in their approach, this restaurant in Zurich knows exactly which wine will suit your meal, be it a red or white from one of Europe’s finest vineyards.

Futuristic furnishings bestow a contemporary elegance on R21. The chic dining room and its colour-beaming pillars add a relaxing touch while you dine. Come summer, the generous terrace offers lovely views over Zurich and its lake.

The closest bus and tram stop is Zurich Zoo, less than 5 minutes away on foot. The R21 restaurant is in Hotel Zürichberg, which is approximately fifteen minutes by car from the centre of the city.

    Great view over Zurich

    Der Service war enttäuschend, anfangs sehr wenig aufmerksam. Was aber v.a. störte, ist die Verkehrsregelung/Sperre der Strasse vor der FIFA wegen dem Busbetrieb zum Zoo. Sie sollten bei der Polizei oder Zoo dafür sorgen, dass Restaurantbesucher dort durchfahren können. An schönen Tagen kann ich ihr Restaurant aus diesem Grund nicht mehr empfehlen, wir standen 30 Minuten im Stau, weil wir die 300m vor der FIFA nicht entgegen der Einbahnstrasse fahren durften.

    The decoration was very festive, it was Christmas Eve, but not too much or tacky. We just loved it. However the restaurant is not the very nicest one, like romantic or so. It is a bit cold blanc walls. But we liked the booth we sat it. There were not too many tables so we were not cramped in at all. We had plenty of space around our table and therefore felt we had some privacy! The view from the hotel outside is splendid!
    The food was excellent and delicious. The service was very attentive and nice.

    Die Lage ist super. Die Einrichtung etwas nüchtern. Gute Gespräche möglich, da viel Platz zwischen den Tischen.
    Der Kellner war alleine, dadurch war eine sehr lange Wartezeit auf das Essen und das Dessert. Er war kompetent, sehr nett, freundlich, und dankbar fürs Trinkgeld.
