Restaurant WÖSCHI – Casual Fine Dining on Lake Zurich
I’m a big fan of lakeside dining in Zurich and this week I discovered Restaurant WÖSCHI in Wollishofen. It’s located right next to the Cassiopeiasteg board walk and the Rote Fabrik and is a beautiful restaurant modern restaurant with amazing cuisine!
Restaurant WÖSCHI – A Fabulous Lakeside Location
Its floor to ceiling glass windows over looking the lake mean the restaurant is flooded with natural light so it is bright and welcoming inside. What’s more is that it has plenty of outdoor seating for relaxing evenings by the lake. It really is in a fabulous location!
David Klocksin and Stephanie Ospelt Now Running Restaurant WÖSCHI
In November, a new couple took over the restaurant – David Klocksin and his partner Stephanie Ospelt. They make a great couple with Stephanie very welcoming at the front of house and David concentrating on creating amazing dishes in the kitchen, David Klocksin has previously worked in Switzerland, Germany and Austria and whilst at Zurich’s “20/20 Restaurant by Mövenpick“ he earned a Michelin star before coming to Restaurant WÖSCHI. From January, David and Stephanie have introduced their new set menu which is available as a 3, 4 or 5 course dinner.
High Quality, Sustainable, Local Produce at Restaurant WÖSCHI
At Restaurant Wöschi, David’s contemporary and international cuisine involves using high quality, sustainable produce which is sourced locally wherever possible. I like the fact that the menu is quite small but packed with flavour and it all is so beautifully presented.
We had a delicious dinner beginning with hand-cut tartare of Zurich beef …
and a wonderful vegetarian starter called “Gemüse 23″(see picture 2 below) which not only looked fabulous but tasted amazing. What’s more it was packed with nutrients with a combination of raw, marinated and pickled vegetables. I can still taste those fresh flavours as I think of it!
For main courses we a wonderful, hearty slow cooked “Sauerbraten”steak dish and a delicious and very light Norwegian halibut fish course.
The sauces in each case were full of flavour and the steak had been lovingly slow cooked for a long time – one of David’s signature traits.
Restaurant WÖSCHI has a good wine list and I really loved the clean, dry white Austrian wine I tried which incidentally, seems to have an almost matching logo to the WÖSCHI ‘s “W”!
We could not resist the desserts! Not only are they works of art – but really delicious too! It was just a tricky decision to decide on which to choose! I loved the freshness of the iced yogurt dessert – but the chocolate dessert was amazing too!
As well as the delicious 3, 4 or 5 course set menu, Restaurant Wöschi are also now offering brunch at the weekends. In fact, if you’re fast you may be able to book for their special Easter Brunch which is running on both Easter Sunday and Easter Monday!
