Nestled just below the Uetliberg is the Hotel Atlantis by Giardino with its unique view of Zurich. The hotel has two restaurants – the exclusive Restaurant Ecco, with chef Stefan Heilemnan, and the more relaxed, but very stylish Hide and Seek. We have previously written about our visit to Ecco (see here) but this time we were staying at the hotel and were invited to dinner.

The Hide and Seek is bright, colourful and modern with bold paintings, colourful books lining its shelves and a lovely outdoor terrace. The terrace is a real draw in good weather – with its beautiful chic parasols and wonderful outdoor space – it really is one of the most stylish places to dine; on the one side surrounded by nature and on the other with views of the city. We were there in mid April so the weather was just beginning to warm up.

The Hide and Seek serves both lunch and dinner. At lunch there is a good value menu with either two courses for CHF 39 or three courses for CHF 49.

To get to the restaurant you first pass by this very cool bar and the evening we were staying there was a Spanish guitarist placing some very good live music, which really added to the atmosphere. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was fully booked and very buzzy.

In the evening the menu is à la Carte menu, and everything is presented on an an electronic tablet. Most of the dishes come in two sizes of serving – small and large – which I always thing is a good thing so that you don’t have to have a full portion if you are not that hungry. The style of the cuisine is modern and international with Oriental and Asian influences – and everything we had was beautifully presented.

We ordered the Chilli Prawn Soup and the Goats Cheese and Beetroot salad for starters. The soup was our favourite – absolutely delicious – not overly spicy and full of flavour. The salad was fresh and crunchy and the cheese tasted really good. For my palate I would have preferred the dressing to have been a just a tiny bit sweeter – but it was delicious nevertheless.

The menu is well laid out and items are clearly denoted explaining if they are vegetarian, vegan and gluten free etc. They say that all their dishes have an Ayurveda inspiration to them, incorporating savoury, sweet, bitter, sour, spicy and tart components, which are designed to “tantalise your taste buds and nourish your body”, so that your meal is easily digested whilst at the time you get to enjoy a variety of  different flavours and textures.

For mains we chose the “Charra Entrecôte” which was very tender, perfectly cooked and extremely tasty. It was served with brown rice, courgette, romesco and a lovely pine nut pesto.

The monkfish was a much lighter main course and also very tasty with sugar snap peas, parsley peas and wild garlic gnocchi. Not only was the food delicious, but the service was excellent too. Very attentive – despite it being so busy – and very friendly.

We decided to share a dessert and plumped for the “Matcha” which incoprorated a refreshing raspberry sorbet together with some berries, matcha crumble and a blackcurrant gelée. It was light and delicious and a perfect end to a lovely evening.
