Quick Tasty Cheap Eat in Zurich

My partner and I were wandering around Zurich and looking for a lunchtime fix. The queue of people of all ages reaching outside tempted us in. Not understanding the term Gold Burli I was a little taken aback just to be handed a bratwurst wrapped in paper - a few minutes later I realised I could... read more

The restaurant has two floors. the one below is more of a fast food stand (but high quality), the restaurant above have sitting places and different menu (probably more items on top on what below). I had hash browns with onion sauce, schnitzel and and the house sausage and bread (yes, I was hungry:-)). All are delicious and quickly prepared.... More

A great cheap and cheery stop for a hunger fix up in the heart of Zurich's Bellevue area. The locals are very proud of their special Canton St. Gallen bratwurst (veal and pork) for around 7 francs plus a bread ("Bürli") with an exterior hard enough to serve as a defense weapon but interior soft enough to eat - so...

Friendly restaurant, located just above the lake! We ate here for New Year's eve and the atmosphere was very nice! Food is simple and well presented, and that's ok..but quantity, in my opinion, doesn't worth the price - even if it's Zurich. Service was simply perfect!

We go to this grill 2-3 times every visit and enjoy it. The wait staff is excellent and the atmosphere is enjoyable. Another great people watching place. Try the upstairs as they have a fuller menu. The outside seating is nice and you always meet nice people here. Wonderful restrooms in the lower level and access to all floors is... More

Superb tasting veal sausages - plain or in currywurst style. Burger was quite decent too. If I could change one thing, it would be swapping the rock hard bread that came along with it. Thing was harder than adamantium; should have spared some thought for senior citizens? Don't be put off by the long queue at times, really fast service... More

I changed my mind very long after placing an order for a daily special and they happily accommodated it.

We heard about this place, and went there quiet hungry, last week, on December 11th, 2014. The ground floor is for take away or standing only.We climbed up the 1st floor for dining, and were seated a long table, sharing it with unknown neighbors. The menu is in German only (...), and the waitress wasn't very helpful in trying to... More

Haven't tried them all, but this one is very good! Their specialty is the bratwurst, that comes wrapped in a paper with bread and mustard sauce. It is located nearly in front of Zürichsee, or Lake Zurich. The staff is really friendly and the food good, of course it is a snack, but something you have to try once in... More
