Honoured with the ‘Best Hotel in Europe’ title from the ‘Leading hotels of the World’, the Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich partly owes this accolade to the excellent quality of the Rive Gauche restaurant.

Housed within this stunning hotel, the Rive Gauche serves up Mediterranean specialities direct from the grill. Refined with hints of exotic spices and exceptional cookery skills, this Zurich restaurant offers the unfailingly popular Gentlemen’s cut Surf & Turf – prime Swiss beef and Canadian lobster from the grill – as well as a host of other delights and vegetarian alternatives too. Team the grilled specialties with the finest wines from the extensive wine cellar of the Baur au Lac or with one of the rare whiskies from the bar.

With a separate entrance to the hotel, the trendy Rive Gauche bar and restaurant attracts a cosmopolitan Zurich crowd as well as hotel guests. Guaranteeing fine dining in a delightful atmosphere, the Rive Gauche is just a few metres from the banks of Lake Zurich. The underground parking of the hotel is ideal, or – for something a little more exciting – the boat dock at Bürkliplatz is only two minutes from the hotel and restaurant for those who arrive by public transport.

    Das Essen war vorzüglich, die empfohlene Weinbegleitung passend und lecker. Ich gehe gerne ins Rive Gauche. Es ist aber, wenn man nicht das Tagesmenue wählt, schon sehr teuer, Qualität hin oder her. Das Restaurant selbst ist ok eingerichtet, es gibt wenig Privatsphäre, ich empfand das Ambiente eher kühl. Der Service war in Ordnung, etwas mehr Aufmerksamkeit wäre möglich, denke ich.
