    One of the best Züri Geschnetzeltes I've had, and there have been many. The starters and dessert were also excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommend.

    lovely food - great menu (not "just" the ordinary dishes you can find anywhere…) We loved the starters in particular:-), e.g. the Semmelknödel dish was delicious!!!

    The Zum grünen Glas is a nice and in french bistro style upgraded Restaurant. I know the place already more then 40 years. It did develope a lot. In the students time, we did use the restaurant to drink beer :-). The sylvetserdinner was well composed, good offers, nice on plate. We did share the plate, that we could see, what all is available. The knowledge of the waiters in behalf of vine and harder drinks ist quite small. It would be great if waiters would know, that Taggenberg not is on the shore of Zürichsee. It is in the region around west Winterthur. They did offer for dessert a Scheurebe sweetvine. Great offer! Hm, where is the Burgenland where this particular vine comes from? We did explain, where it was growing and the waiter has been a bit surprised. But he was all the time very helpful and friendly. Thanks a lot.
