Time Out says

Enjoy French-inspired dishes and a bistro ambience at this charming restaurant near the Opera House on Lake Zurich.

Quaglinos, a French-style brasserie in Zurich’s chic Seefeld area, has the 1920s bistro ambience down to a T. Tucked behind the Opera House on Lake Zurich, it is a charming space with mirrors, art nouveau works and windowpane-check napkins. A cabinet of spirits lines one wall, and French doors another, while wine bottles are arranged along a ceiling shelf. The effect is rounded off by the baguette and garlic butter served while you peruse the suitably French menu. Dishes include foie de gras canard and beefsteak tartare, as well as onion soup and mussels in white wine, or classics like cordon bleu. If you have room for dessert, try the ‘assiette de chocolat’ of mousse, warm chocolate cake and plums, but be sure to find somebody to share it with: it’s as rich as it is mouth-watering. Quaglinos is popular and booking is recommended. Ask for a window seat to enjoy excellent people watching, then while away a relaxed evening, French-style.
