  • Dragon Soft Shell Crab Sushi, with a side of Caviar (why not?)

Why not order with a side of Kaviari Beluga Imperial caviar – it goes perfectly with a glass of champagne. 

  • Miso-marinated Glacier 51 Toothfish

One of our signature dishes, this is certainly not one to miss. Deliciously flakey, marinated to perfection and plated with pickled daikon, shiitake mushrooms and  padron peppers for an extra kick. Simply art on a plate

  • Beef Sukiyaki Sliders

If you’re a burger lover, but couldn’t finish a whole one, opt for our sharing sliders, which combines succulent sukiyaki wagyu beef with sake onion, cherry tomato and garlic mayo, sandwiched together in a light and fluffy brioche bun. Delicious! 

  • Fluffy Duck 

Yes, you heard correctly. Japanese food in Zurich also satisfies that sweet tooth – but our Japanese desserts at The Penthouse are also Michelin starred! Our top pic is the Fluffy Duck, which marries the citrus tang of mango and passion fruit mousse with the sweet caramel flavour of the caramelized puffed rice, cut through by the sour blood orange sorbet. And be sure to take a snap for the ‘gram, our Fluffy Duck is quite literally a yellow and orange beaked duck – you’ve got to see it to believe it. 

Whether you choose to sit inside and immerse yourself in the opulent décor, or sit out on the terrace and marvel at our unique view, Instagrammable moments come aplenty at The Penthouse.

Enjoy the best beats and music from our resident DJ and vibe the night away in style. If your fashion savvy, a foodies at heart or a music lover, this is certainly the rooftop restaurant in Zurich for you.
