As a recommendation of the hotel, we enjoyed a meal there on Dec. 29, 2014. I had the specialty, Kalbsgeschnetzeltes (Schweiz) „Zürcher Art“ mit/ohne Kalbsnieren und Butterrösti Sliced veal „Zurich style“ with or with calf’s kidneys and „Rösti“ CHF 43.00. Yes, it was an expensive meal for a family of 5-- but it is to be expected in Zurich, where... More

Best Veal Zurichoise and Mouse of Chocolat anywhere. Portions are generous and be sure to make a reservation for lunch or for dinner this place fills up either way. Enjoy, this is one of my long term favorite in Switzerland. Not a good place for non meat eaters

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

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
