Rustic food in trendy restaurant

The Volkshaus serves up rustic fair in a traditional yet eclectic setting. Food was delicious and service friendly. It's just meters away from public transport so very convenient to get to

Risotto swimming in oil, super salty. Terrible meal! Would definitely not recommend. Also the service is not good.

Based on a friends recommendation we had a good meal with great service. Locals with few tourists. Provides a nice flair of Zurich.

Beside menu, there are daily offers, and honestly, they were better than what was on the menu. I had salad for entree, white fish with black rice and asparagus in lemon sauce for main dish, and chocolate fondue with ice cream, whipped cream and strawberries for dessert. Everything was perfectly cooked and nicely served. Service was friendly. They have good... More

Had good food on a weekday evening. Excellent and friendly service. Except for the prices for the spanish vines - which were actually offered under a promotion scheme - and which were totally overpriced, we spent a great evening.

Really sound Swiss cooking, which avoids the cliches and fuss. Go hungry. The safe is at the front, with the mire formal restaurant at the rear. Staff are starched in white aprons, and are multi lingual. And they know the menu. Formal, but slightly ironic, reflected in the decor.

My old buddies and I, all Swiss, loved the traditional dishes being served. However, this is not the romantic chalet setting you might expect, rather its a very classy large dining room, which goes very well with the urban/bohemian flair of the Langstrasse area. Highly recommendable!

This restaurant serves good food with high quality ingredients in a nice atmosphere. Most of the courses offered are traditional Swiss or German, but the place is not the typical tourist trap serving low quality fondue at disproportionate prices. Another plus is that the offer changes with the time of the year, so that the food is always prepared with... More
