Where to take in the best view of Zürich: Katzentisch’s Top 5 Restaurant Shortlist
Following our article about the most beautiful terraces in Zürich, we wanted to introduce you to our top 5 list of where to eat with the best view. With Switzerland’s breathtaking landscapes, it’s always good to know where you can go to take it all in. With a glass of wine in your hand, of course! Below, we have put together a quick summary of our top 5 restaurants that offer the best views of the city.
In the lift on the way up, you might get a tingling feeling that the night is going to be good one. Once you reach the rooftop terrace, you are bound to feel that you have been transported to another time and place, perhaps a reminder of Soho House in London.
The George is more than just a restaurant, it is a place dedicated to evening entertainment and largely inspired by New York establishments from the prohibition era. Imagine Al Capone or Marilyn Monroe sitting at the next table.
The stylish interior is impressive with differing levels of seating, so you can sit in the heavens or if you don't have a head for heights, it doesn't matter. The food is excellent and the key word here is meat. Simply put, dining at George guarantees first class cuisine, accompanied with a great crowd, tasty drinks, in a stylish and authentic atmosphere.
Located on the top floor of the Prime Tower, Clouds is divided into a restaurant, lounge and bistro. In tribute to it’s name, you are in fact as close to the clouds as you’ll get in, because the view is simply magnificent. No wonder the restaurant is often fully booked up at weekend.
We highly recommend this place for an aperitif or a small snack between meals. The bar not only offers the classic cocktail repertoire, but also more innovative creations.
Our tip: The Black Angus meat special, which comes from Waterford, Ireland.
Buech has a very natural setting, located right on the village of Herrliberg. Situated in an old, beautifully restored farmhouse, this restaurant is for romantics. The view stretches far beyond Lake Zürich and the Alps, while the chalet is a juxtaposition between chic and rustic, and the cuisine offered is in a contemporary Swiss style. It is said to have the best tartar in Zürich!
Our tip: The ‘’private dining’’ experience in one of the 3 winemaker huts.
The Sonnenberg was bought in 1897 by the city of Zürich, so that the beautiful views this landmark offered could be appreciated by all of the inhabitants.
Seated in the elegant yet rustic restaurant, you can truly take in one of the most breath-taking views in Zürich. The cuisine is simple and straightforward with a slight Italian twist. We highly recommend this place!

Piracy has never been much of a vocation in Zurich. The lake is far too small and there is no treasure island. Or is that strictly true? While the lake is too small for an effective Long John Silver or Jack Sparrow, it does contain a
