You might expect people to come here mainly for the view from the 35th floor of the Prime Tower, but the food might actually exceed your expectations. David Martinez Salvany creates dishes inspired by his Catalonian heritage, and there is even a full tasting menu for vegetarians. So do pay attention to this tingling sensation in your taste buds while looking out of the window.

Jacky Donatz’ food palace high up on the Zürichberg has been one of the best addresses in town for years.

Definitely a good place for a business lunch with important customers.
