The Best Restaurants in Zürich

Where to dine in Switzerland's largest city.

Switzerland Europe

Located in the northern part of the European country, Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland. A bustling city for vacation goers and business travelers alike (it is one of the world's largest financial centers), it comes as no surprise that the metropolis is full excellent dining options. For those looking for the crème de la crème, here are the Zürich's restaurants with the best distinctions from the MICHELIN Guide Switzerland 2019 selection.

Pavillon

Distinction: Two MICHELIN Stars

What Our Inspectors Say: "Star architect Pierre-Yves Rochon designed this elegant restaurant and the almost 360° glazed rotunda with its country views is wonderful. The exquisite classic cuisine is prepared by Laurent Eperon and includes dishes such as roast sea bass with Périgord truffles."

The Restaurant

Distinction: Two MICHELIN Stars

What Our Inspectors Say: "For years now this stylish restaurant above the rooftops of Zürich has been the home of elaborate, creative cuisine full of contrasts made using only the finest ingredients. If you fancy trying a little of everything, go for the tasting menu. Charming service, excellent wine selection."

Ecco Zürich

Distinction: Two MICHELIN Stars

What Our Inspectors Say: "This creative concept is already well known from the Ecco restaurants in Ascona and St. Moritz, but here Stefan Heilemann brings his own personal touch. He cooks innovative food with fine, intelligent contrasts and great depth. The interior is genuinely elegant, while the service is friendly and professional."

RICO'S

Distinction: Two MICHELIN Stars

What Our Inspectors Say: "The sophisticated design and various art pieces on display at RICO'S are just as important in creating the special atmosphere as the professional, friendly and relaxed service. The whole provides the ideal setting for creative modern cuisine that plays with textures and flavors. Rico's Privé is for private events."
