Restaurant SALIR Zurich –
A Delicious Fusion of Mediterranean & Middle Eastern Food
Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Cuisine in Zurich
If you love Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food we have a great recommendation for you in Zurich! Located just 10 minutes from the lake and 4 minutes from the Kunsthaus it is a real gem. The young couple running the restaurant are friendly and welcoming and the menu was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented.
The restaurant is light and airy and has been newly decorated in elegant neutrals and touches of blue with the odd Middle Eastern flourish. We visited on a hot summer’s evening so instead of dining inside we took the opportunity to eat in the garden.
After enjoying the refreshing house cocktail which I found to be a much tastier (and prettier!) version of Aperol Spritz, we ordered some of the sharing dishes for starters.
We had meat balls with black cherries – which is a wonderful combination, courgette fritters, a pea hummus and delicious cheese pasty “cigars”.

All the dishes were brimming with colour, and freshness The mix of the Mediterranean together with the Middle Eastern influence is definitely a winning combination.
For the main course, we had the fish and the lamb and once again they were both delicious and beautifully served along with sides of couscous and a tomato dish.
We really didn’t need a dessert, but we were very keen to discover the “surprise” dessert and we accompanied it with some of the homemade date ice cream too. We won’t spoil the “surprise” by telling you what it was- so there’s only one way to find out and that’s to pop along and find out for yourself!
