Coco Grill and Bar has always been one of my personal top favorites in Zurich. Ideal for a business lunch or dinner with friends. But basically owner Michel Péclard's success comes to no surprise. With his pioneering spirit, he understands like no other how to offer the people of Zurich something that is always new and original.

Coco is somewhat hidden at Paradeplatz toward Stockerstrasse. Proof that things aren't taken too seriously here can already be seen with the old knife, fork and spoon cutlery chandelier hanging in the entrance. Even the napkins, which are actually XXL bibs, make us smile - and the waiter anyhow.

In the evening the menu consists of an alternating 5-courses, which for the main dish we could choose from the Sepia fish variations, sea bass, monkfish, the fillet of beef, a Côte de Boeuf from the Zurich Oberland or a thick flank pork chop from the Valais.

The entire menu proves to be purely enjoyable. We start with a small Apéro plate of mostly salami and mortadella, followed by a Tuna sashimi with Danube asparagus and wild espuma garlic and a duo of lamb for the third course. Between courses we received "all the best from the garden" - a sufficiently stocked vegetable basket which included, to our surprise, a boiled egg. Thank God we still had some space left for the main course - a perfectly cooked Côte de Boeuf with a savory grilled flavor, abundant and like all the previous courses, simply marvelous.


Last but not least, we were spoiled with a fine biscuit alongside raspberries, vanilla mousse and Hirzel-cream. Our wonderful dinner was accompanied by specialty fine wine from Coco's legendary wine cellar. There, one can find a well-known Aalto or Hacienda Monasterio, and specialties from smaller wineries such as a 'Sestal' from the Majorcan 'Finca Ses Talaioles', a 'Completer' from Malan's Donatsch in the Grisons, and – the name says it all – a Groszer wine from Austria’s Südburgenland.

Finally, it should be revealed as an insider tip that the wine cellar is not only used for bottle storage, but occasionally for a gentlemen’s gathering, where small groups can be served lunch and dinner.
