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!

One of my favorite places in Zurich! The portions of food are huge and it's great on one hand because most of it is delicious, on the other - you can just explode! So tasty you can't unfinish it! Service is quite good for such place, it's often almost 100 percent busy, mostly with tourists because it's right in Paradeplatz,... More

We found it very easy from our hotel. The food was good, the service so-so. We stood by the entrance at least 10 minutes until one of the waiters decided to come and ask us if we wanted a table. It was around 3:30 pm and not busy at all. Other than that the food was good, and it was... More

Took business colleagues from Asia there. It is very touristy and noisy. The food is on the bottom rung of OK and the wine they have is not great. Definitely not a place i would frequent. The waitress was however top and very attentive and friendly.

The interior was filled with antique armoury and furniture (some of it may not have been totally real though, like Wilhem Tell's bow and arrows) due to its history as an armoury. Food was yummy; husband had the pork shank and I had the mixed sausage platter on a stick. Wait staff were moderately friendly, spoke English well. Only minor... More

big touristic place with swiss specialties. the place is very nice as all is wooden and there is a collection of weapons from the ancient times starting from the bow of william the tell. the service is little rude as they have to follow a huge amount of people and have also the queue outside (better to reserve in advance)....

Very good food, specially meats, swiss style. The restaurant was full and the waitress accommodated both of us in the same table with another couple from China, very nice and interesting people and conversation. Bread is on the table and you pay what you eat (1.50 CHF per piece of bread).
