An outdoor bar and restaurant built out of containers on the
Limmat river, Primitivo sits opposite Oberer Letten badi, sharing it’s counter cultural vibe, ornamental graffiti and
some interesting people watching. But despite the alternative feel, this is a
slick operation from Gasometer AG, the team behind Josef and some of Zürich’s
most popular eateries.
A small bar serves drinks and fresh food like tuna
burgers with wasabi sauce and French fries with miso-mayo all day long. Grab a
beer or a refreshing, home-made ginger and lime drink, pick one of the brightly
coloured tables and watch the folk floating down the river at Oberer Letten.
If you can’t be bothered to walk over the bridge to join them,
Primitivo has its own sunbathing deck along the Limmat. In the evenings, the
action moves upstairs to the smart decked sun terrace and lounge bar.
