The best way to spend a hot day in Zurich is lake or river swimming. The state website lists the daily water temperatures and facilities available at each Seebad or Flussbad, and by night many turn into relaxed bars.

Anthony Carlos, from the Philippines, offers serious a Asian menu with homemade specialties. Check as well the monthly events. Recommended for lovers of gourmet, but you will need to make reservations, as the place is small (max. 25 seats).

It is a small restaurant in the style of a French bistro with undoubtedly the best steak and french fries available in the city (I have lived in Zurich for 2 years). The service and ambience are excellent, look out for Alessandro the manager/owner who is extremely friendly. House wines are always excellent, no need to chose from the wine menu. For non-steak lovers the king prawns, chicken tarragon and mussels are all wonderful. Try the lemon tart for desert.
