Great place for brunch, American and Brit food and special beer

It's a restaurant running an American/British inspired menu (American owned/managed), known for their very interesting offering of rare imported beers especially from Italy.

Visited with a german colleague on a foggy early December afternoon. A lot of English speakers in the place. American-style restaurant. Looks like a place out of Twillight being located in some remote swiss valley. Friendly owner, efficient waitress. Cosy.

Genuinely warm and friendly staff. They work hard to keep their customers happy, and it pays off. The food is great, and I love that they change the menus regularly, which gently encourages you to consider trying something new. Adapt dishes to suit the customers requirements, especially the fish ('lightly battered please'!) I recommend this restaurant to all types of... More

Visited Fork and Bottle for a special Halloween ‘murder mystery’ event. It was a 4 course set menu (with a choice of main – meat, fish, veg risotto) and some improve entertainment. Service, was excellent – friendly, accommodating, timely. We received good recommendations on the wine and, although, it was a busy night, the staff kept up with all their... More

Fantastic place if you like or have kids otherwise I can not recommend. We where two couples with 3 kids and had a fantastic Sunday Brunch. Good food, good atmosphere und friendly service. By the way... the lunch menu rocks as well... One negative thing I have to mention... What about those Ketchup bottles... they are a pain in the... More

If you love beer then this is a must. Food menu is limited to mainly burgers and pub style food but it is decent quality. Friendly helpful staff with a good knowledge of craft ales. Beer menu extensive and mostly includes beers from Switzerland and Italy.

I can't say enough good things about this place! The food was great, the service was super friendly, and the atmosphere is something I've been missing since I moved to Switzerland. The play area for children is an extra plus, and we probably stayed an hour longer than planned, just because we were enjoying ourselves. We will definitely come here... More

I had lunch there with some friends. Since I heard all good things about the restaurant my expectations were a little bit high. Unfortunately the food was mostly hamburgers which don't taste good. The pommes frites was overcooked with so much fat. And all the items were overpriced even for Zürich. The place is good though and the garden is... More

Though I can't recommend visiting Fork and Bottle if you are looking for traditional foods (the owner and many of the staff are American), the service, food, and overall vibe is excellent. My husband came across the restaurant through a beer review website and the bottle and draft selection will not disappoint! Both the revamped farmhouse-style restaurant and outside seating... More

... then don't look any further and go to Fork&Bottle! We enjoyed our third brunch there within a few months and loved it every single time. Nick welcomed us to this slightly hidden gem in Zurich (close to Sihlcity/Brunau), and he and his team made sure that we were well taken care of! From the generous pastry basket with cinnamon...
