This is a noisy, lively restaurant set in an old armory. The menu is extensive and the seasonal specialities are really good. It is marron season so definitely try the dessert which is sweet marron paste that looks like spaghetti over a bed of ice cream. Beware that they charge you for each roll that you take and in our...

Very crowded during weekend and some of the weekdays. We waited 30 mins to get a seat inside. Outside open till 9:15 pm only in winter due to weather changing. Worth of waiting the food and beer is good. Good place to bring visitors from home country. Our favorite and famous dish is the Zürich specialties "mushrooms cream sauce beef... More

The wiener veal schnitzel with the Swiss roesti (much improved version of hash brown) was delicious and generous Always packed and unless you in a group... More

If you want to try something typical from Zurich just go to this place. For the first time ever, I did not check this place on tripadvisor, but just see how crowded it is (lunch and dinner). There are two entrances and people wait outside to be there! The place is a simple 'osteria type", a lot of noise and... More

The ambience has a “deep-rooted old traditional but for tourists” feel. But is still very nice. A large room with long tables, you have two options, you can be seated with strangers or wait for a private table. I like this idea, you end up having conversations with people from around the world. Its nice. Don’t expect it to be... More

This is a dining experience for tourists. It is one very large room with long tables. You are seated with strangers - typically from all over the world. The food is classic Swiss and it is hearty and delicious. Don't expect a leisurely meal because you are given a limited amount of time to dine - really is fun. Have... More

Famous traditional restaurant in the center of Zurich. For every tourist a must to discover typical local Swiss food like Bratwurst, Rösti etc. in a some kind of medieval setting.

This place was packed and we had not booked. A short wait and then we were in. Be prepared to be on a shared table as that's how it works. The vibe was good, beer was cold, food very tasty and the service attentive. All the sausages come with potatoe salad which is a bit creamy. Better to go with... More

We were to meet up with our friends and they directed us to this quaint place just behind the Hermes store. It does give a feel of a large hall but has a great mix of locals as well as tourists - we managed to get a table for 4 before the 10 O Clock Zurich deadline which is too... More
