We took a hike to the top of the hill to Tessin Grotto; we walked it from the tram stop; better to take the bus line 38 or 69. We made a reservation online, but when we got there, they didn't have our reservation. It was okay since they were able to accommodate us. It was a beautiful day in May, so we sat outside. My wife had the lamb chop; she is gluten free. My daughter had the asparagus dish. I had the risotto. All of our meals were delicious. Excellent service.

We had a good evening at the Grotto. Service was very friendly and the location nicely hidden in the forest. The starter (Ziegenkäse Mousse) was just great. However, the main dishes were rather ok and the roast under the Merlot sauce or the rabbit in the Gnocchi were nearly nothing/missing. On the other hand, there was plenty of roast potatoes to the small Cordon Bleue. Solid Zurich prices are high for potatoes and a lot of Sauce. Once in a while ok.

This is a kind of hidden spot you have to know about. Tucked away in the forest, and next to a tennis club, this is great getaway from the hectic city center on a sunny week-end day. The outdoors patio is cozy. The food is good, but not amazing. A nice spot to come to if you you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere.
