Restau­rant Mère Cathe­rine

La Provence in Niederdorf

In the center of it all, and yet wonderfully quiet. Between the charming houses of idyllic Nägelihof in Zurich’s Old Town, you might even wonder: Am I in Provence? The answer: Well, almost – you’re at Mère Catherine’s, a restaurant that boasts Provençal charm and dishes. And because the register office is located right on the Limmat, you don’t have to go farther than our gallery to celebrate your wedding. Or reserve our salon for your next business meeting.

Le menu du marché

You'll find a variety of seasonal specialties on our menu, rounded out with classic Provençal dishes. A large selection of fish and various meat dishes, as well as purely vegetarian creations. Et les fromages et desserts – heavenly! All accompanied by fine wines and spirits. From Monday to Friday, we serve a lunch menu with fish, meat and vegetarian options, as well as our “menu du marché” with dessert, which we also offer on Saturdays and Sundays.

Moules et frites

The new season has started

In contrast to the oyster, the mussels or oysters are preferably eaten cooked, but also baked, au gratin or roasted. The nutritious soil of the shell is the water, so the Bouchot mussels from the Breton area around Mont-Saint-Michel are the tastiest for many people.

Bar Le Philosophe

For wine, vinyl and more

Standing around the bar at Le Philosophe, you will inevitably find yourself getting to know your neighbour, maybe over an apéro à la française, that is, a glass of good wine and a small appetizer. The cozy bar with its sophisticated wine and drinks menu is the perfect place to chat and philosophize. This gastronomic treasure also boasts a carefully curated jukebox, filled with vinyl singles – from old chansons to hits from the ’90s.

Voilà, our “tartare allez-retour”!

For those who want to read their newspaper leisurely, we open at 11.00. If you are craving a delicious sandwich, come and have lunch with us. Our specialty is “Tartare Le Philosophe allez-retour” – beef tartare that gets a quick pan searing on both sides. And for a larger selection, simply choose from the Mère Catherine menu, our sister restaurant right next door.
