With its easy-going attitude and zesty interior, this restaurant in Zuri-West attracts a lively crowd who go to enjoy its burgers and beer brewed in-house.
Steinfels in Zurich’s trendy industrial quarter is like the friend who always lifts your spirits. The American-style restaurant, which occupies a cavernous former soap factory, is an explosion of orange and lime in a 1970s-inspired space set with polished wood tables of all shapes and sizes. Take a high table to enjoy views over the mixed crowd of students and business people, couples and groups of friends, and through glass panels into the house brewery, where Steinfels beer is made. Staff are happy to oblige requests for a quick tour of the beer-making process – an intriguing interlude to any visit. The house Indian Pale Ale is so good that there is little wonder many people go to enjoy the relaxed ambience over a drink. Food is equally enjoyable, however, and as varied as the clientele, ranging from hearty beer burgers to the fruity California salad, which will please the health-conscious. Service is efficient, making Steinfels perfect for a convenient dinner pre-film at the neighbouring Abaton cinema.
