Founded in 1898 by Ambrosius Hiltl, the house of Hiltl in Zurich is the oldest vegetarian restaurant in the world (according to the Guinness Book of Records) and the leading establishment of its kind (Hiltl’s own claim). Today, the company is run by the fourth generation of the Hiltl family and is known far beyond the Zurich city limits and the borders of Switzerland. At several locations in Zurich, Hiltl offers premium à la carte dishes, innovative buffets, food to go, catering and the «Hiltl Vegimetzg», the fist vegetarian «butcher shop» in Switzerland.

The Hiltl Sihlpost restaurant on Europaallee in Zurich’s new urban quarter directly behind the main railway station, opened in 2016, is simply breath-taking. Its “grab & go” concept perfectly suits the motley clientele you encounter in the neighbourhood. The furnishings venerate the old site of the city’s main post office, and the food presentation, conceived and planned in close cooperation with Beer Grill AG, presents the mouth-watering selection of dishes in seductive illumination, and surprises with a unique special function.
