Venice as a guest in Zurich.

Logo Ristorante Bindella Zürich cotedazurich

Traditional dishes accompanied by exquisite wines from the Veneto and other Italian wine regions. The ambience is also "molto italiano" and the art is of the unique Zurich painter Hanny Fries.

Noble spaghetti all'astice, liguine alla veneziana, filetto di manzo: the menu features Italian classics, prepared to the highest standards. And the wines? They come from leading winemakers from all over Italy and are simply in a class of their own.

The art of cocktails.


The lovely and cosy Le Philosophe is hidden in the twisty alleys of Zurich's old town. The bar in French style invites you to linger and while you’re seated, time seems to stand still. Delicious cocktails, a glass of good wine and French étagères make the aperitif complete. In the bar's courtyard, guests feel as though they're in the middle of a southern French town.

Ristorante Casa Ferlin

Ristorante Casa Ferlin Logo Zürich

We are not alone with our 115th anniversary. There are hotel and restaurant businesses that are much older. But if you look at the "veterans" and search for a patron in the kitchen or as a chef de service at the front, you will hardly find an older company than ours. If you focus on the tradition that still exists, be it in the kitchen, in the cellar or in the ambience, then we can consider our anniversary to be a very special one.
