The stately tower of the University of Zurich rises above the rooftops of the city’s surrounding buildings to afford its visitors a clear view of the lake and mountains. Only insiders know how to reach the seventh floor which is home to a fascinating blend of influences: vintage and contemporary, creative and traditional, innovative and conventional. Welcome to Restaurant uniTurm.

Our cuisine is characterized by a passion for our craft, authenticity and innovativeness. We cook using fresh, seasonal ingredients and pay attention to the smallest of details yet do so without neglecting the essentials. We actively practice the «art of indulgence», turn on the charm and make your visit to our lofty heights a unique, one-of-a-kind experience.

Whether you are planning a relaxing coffee break, an elegant lunch, a stand-up luncheon or a celebration in special surroundings, hosting you would be our pleasure. Our restaurant can accommodate 60 seated guests or 100 people for standing receptions. A small gallery offers space for another 42 seated guests or 60 people standing.
