Traditional Swiss Food in the middle of Zurich. I have been there couple of times and food and atmosphere is always great. Must to try - Veal Zurich style.

Hands down the best rosti and bratwurst I ever had. The atmosphere and decor was unique, it was a bit noisy and I didn't like how we were seated beside other guests in the same table but luckily we had some very friendly locals seated next to us who couldn't really speak English but tried to! As I just had... More

Had the mushroom veal and rosti, and it was fantastic! The house beer was very good. Waiter was friendly. No complains!

There is always a wait if you do not have a reservation. The enormous room is overcrowded and noisy. I could not imagine where they could squeeze in another table. Unless you can fill a table, you will have to share one. Our first 'colleagues' were an unfriendly family who seemed offended by our presence, or so I thought from... More

Unless you are lucky you will not get in here without a table reservation, its rammed. Think Oktoberfest, think big German beer hall, this is it. HUGE beers and enormous portions, their speciality is sausages. Expensive, by hey its right slap bang in the middle of Zurich right on the Paradeplatz. I live in Zurich and I love this place,...

This restaurant is fun in terms of decor. It's a little kitschy. There are many long tables and most people were asked to share. We didn't have a reservation and so really didn't mind sharing. (I had the seat overlooking the restaurant. Many people coming in, including those were seated later at our table, seemed upset.) The menu contains many... More

I ate here with my family one rainy Sunday lunchtime during a holiday in Zurich. The first thing that hit me was the sheer 'Swiss-ness' of everything - the décor, the menu, the waiters etc. The second thing was the wonderful family atmosphere - it was clearly where a lot of residents go for their Sunday lunches - there weren't...

This is a VERY popular/busy restaurant. There are lots of seats inside, and a dozen or more tables outside under large umbrellas. No reservations, and at busy times there can be long waits for a table, especially inside. The time is shortened, however, as they encourage people to sit where ever there are seats outside, and to share tables with... More

I really enjoyed this place especially the food, everything is homemade and really family style food, I highly recommend the Zurcher Geschnetzeltes, sautéed veal with a creamy mushroom sauce and rosti!
