We went to Eglisau to celebrate our anniversary because the Restaurant La Passion in this small historic hotel is outstanding (see our review). We thought, although it is only 45 minutes from home, that we would spend the night so that we could drink and not drive. My husband, and something must have been lost in translation, explained it was... More

We had dinner on the terrace.... great romantic atmosphere with the string lights! Food was amazing and well presented. The waiter spoke excellent English and was very attentive. Reception was kind enough to show us one of their suites - huge room and bathroom that looks out over the Rhein, beautifully renovated and decorated. Eglisau is a beautiful little village... More

We came to eat here for my birthday, and were so amazed at the creativity, presentation and the different working of flavors that were so beautifully plated. The server was descrete but very professional, and the chef actually came out to talk with the diners! We ordered the 4 course dinner for two, but all in all it was actually... More

Thanks to the new chef quality and timing of the courses have improved considerably. There are 2 to 3 amuses bouches which are filling even before the entrée has been served. The quality of food is beyond expectation. One feels that the young and rather shy chef is ambitious and very talented. We had a wonderful dinner in a very... More

I was positively surprised by my last dining experience at the gourmet restaurant of the Hotel Hirschen in Eglisau. The food is creative and really tasty. For me it should have 1 Michelin star. Service was also excellent. I have 2 small critics: - they serve a lot of very small courses. Good to taste different things but it was... More

Stayed there for one night during a bicycle trip. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The room, a mixture of old furniture and modern equipment, with a great view on the Rhine, was lovely. Dinner at the Bistro on the terrace was excellent. All in all, the best hotel during our trip through Switzerland. Of course, the price-quality ratio... More

As the hotel we planned on booking in the immediate Zurich suburbs was unavialable, a websearch for "village hotels near Zurich" revealed the name of the Gasthof Hirschen. A couple of brief emails completed the booking process. As we were traveling by train from Florence and arriving in Eglisau at 20:00, we asked that the hotel arrange a taxi to... More
