Hiltl has been in business for over 100 years. This makes it the oldest known vegetarian restaurant in the world and a must to visit when you are in Zurich. Even carnivores will admit that the food at Hiltl is delicious. I have been a regular at Hiltl for many years now and the quality of the food has only increased. There are a couple menu mainstays but the staff keeps on developing new delightful dishes. For me this is one of their strengths and a great reason to be coming back. Who doesn’t want to be surprised with great tasting food? You can order from the menu, but the buffet is also great.
Every dish is labeled so you know the key ingredients and contents. Great if you have any dietary restrictions. Many dishes have a slight Indian touch. The food is always fresh and the drinks are amazing. I recommend the homemade iced teas and lemonades, as well as the fresh fruit juices. The place is always packed, so do make a reservation! The Hiltl vegetarian butcher shop is located next to the restaurant.
