an old guild house a very impressive building the interior is also nice. A small, cosy restaurant with very good food and good service, the menu caters for vegetarians, meat and fish eaters. Good size portions and good wine list.

A true gem in the city of Zurich. One of the most impressive and oldest buildings in Zurich. A "must visit" for every tourist, the "Zunfthaus zur Waag" is one of the best venues also for local visitors and even for the international celebrities who visit Zurich. The dishes are mostly local and of the best quality you could ask... More

Despite living in Zurich for a year I needed help finding a romantic restaurant for a date night with my girlfriend. The tourist office (!) recommended Zunfthaus zur Waag and it did not disappoint. The room is small and intimate, framed by old maps and windows to the square. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent and the bill,... More

It's actually quite easy to impress your guests in Zurich, with the number of qood restaurants in town. Leading the list for me is the Zunfthaus zur Waag. Everything works like clock-work (after all, we are in Switzerland..) And the excellent wine-list is only topped by the work of the kitchen and the impeccable service. I hosted a group of... More

Located in the first floor of the "Zunfthaus" you'll find a great restaurant. The staff is exceptional friendly, the food is very good and you feel very welcome!

I visited Zur Waag for my partner's birthday in February. The service was exceptional & the food even better. Perhaps the Scandinavian Band who appeared latterly would not be to all tastes but this provided much entertainment to our table if perhaps a little surreal. For Zürich the value is good as many comparable meals, served in settings not so... More

We had an informal dinner with a group of about 10 persons, choose it by chance just wondering through the Old City in search of a nice place to eat outside in the evening of what happened to be one of the hottest days in Zurich. The restaurant is just next to Fraumunster in the little piazetta behind the church,... More

Booked this restaurant for a conference dinner for 145 people. Everything was perfect and the staff were friendly, efficient and helpful from the initial contact, booking arrangements to the evening itself. The food was delicious, wine was excellent, surroundings were beautiful both in the Zunfthaus and in the wonderful cloisters of the Fraumünster where we had our pre-dinner aperitif. I... More
