Vegetarian And Vegan Cuisine In Zurich



tibits vegetarian and vegan restaurants


The first tibits restaurant was founded in Zurich by three brothers Christian, Daniel and Reto Frei together with Rolf Hiltl back in the year 2000. Serving exclusively vegetarian and vegan cuisine, they offer a daily choice of over 40 freshly prepared healthy dishes. You serve yourself from a great big buffet shaped like a boat, which is packed with salads and cold side dishes as well as hot buffet items and desserts too.

The “buffet boat” at the new Oerlikon branch is decorated with Murano glass and there are other matching star decorations made of Murano too. The star symbols are linked to the fact that the restaurant is located in the area of Oerlikon known as Sternen (or Star) Oerlikon.

Since you serve yourself and you pay by weight, you are in charge of portion size and can choose from the vast array of fresh produce on offer. You can eat in or take away and as well as offering free water to wash down your meal, you can purchase teas, coffee, wines, beers and cocktails too.

On Friday 3rd June 2016 the official opening of the third branch of this highly successful vegetarian chain took place in Oerlikon, bringing to 3 the number of tibits restaurants in Zurich and 8 overall. The other restaurants are in Basel, Bern, Lucerne, Winterthur, Zurich and London. The restaurants are open from early morning to late at night – and 7 days a week. You can even go there for Sunday brunch.

The latest restaurant is conveniently located about 6 or 7 minutes walk from Oerlikon main station close to the Sternen Oerlikon tram stop. Bright, airy and spacious the restaurant boasts two floors of seating and we caught a glimpse of the new restaurant at the pre-opening night before the official opening.

It’s a great addition to the city’s burgeoning vegan and vegetarian scene so why not pop over and test it out for yourself?

  1. Visiting Zürich soon and considering to eat there, too. Last time I ate at Hitl and it was nice (though extremely expensive) 🙂

      Prices in Switzerland do tend to be higher than most other countries in Europe for most things including eating out – but both Hiltl and tibits are excellent vegetarian restaurants with a wide range of freshly prepared produce. Hope you enjoy your visit to Zurich! 🙂
