70 years of culinary excellence

From 10 March to 20 April 2018

Scallops & avocado tartare

Beef tartare has become a Mediterranean version with scallops and an emphasis on ingredients that are big on flavour and health-giving benefits.

Salade belle fermière

Our interpretation of Salade François is as just as lively as the celebrated movie scene in the 1948 American musical film, “Easter Parade”.

Mushrooms and vegetables Zurich Style

Our meat-free version of Zurich-style veal is rich in texture and colour, thanks to an enticing combination of root vegetables and Shitake mushrooms.

Seafood Casimir

We created a light dish featuring a health-boosting medley of steamed seafood, fish and sea asparagus, as well as an assortment of citrus fillets.

Bare beef burger Café de Paris

A speciality of this dish is the lean mince patty – an almost fat-free prime beef cut that is also used to make our classic Entrecôte Café de Paris.

Carrot waffle

Our famous Mövenpick ice cream and Mövenpick Espresso are key ingredients in this quirky reinterpretation of our classic Swiss carrot cake.

Mille-feuille saumon & caviar d’olive

Delicate smoked salmon and puff pastry slice, paired with a golden olive caviar that takes its cue from molecular gastronomy techniques.

Why you'll love it!

Sunday brunch

Sunday Brunch at AYU is the very best of both worlds. Better than breakfast - giving you a weekend lie in and more leisurely than lunch and of course arguably the most luxurious meal of the week!

Chefs interaction

Forget about the formalities as our skilled chefs go that extra mile to make your dining experience a personal one as they whip up your favourite dish right in front of you.

Wine & cheese cellar

In a pleasant surrounding, enjoy some of the finest wines paired with cheese from the same region and discover a whole new dining experience at our walk-in Wine & Cheese cellar.
