We were looking for a traditional swiss german restaurant in downtown Zurich, and the Zeughauskeller was what we were looking for. It's located just off the Bahnhofstrasse, next to Paradeplatz, so an easy ride on the tram from the main rail station. From the outside, the restaurant doesn't look like anything special. But once you are inside, you get immersed... More

This is the most tasty example of local cuisine, portions are huge, you can order one dish for 2-3 people easy! Desserts are fantastic! Plus you have atmosphere of old restaurant. Please book a table in a advance as it's a very popular place!

We had dinner at this place this week, and the good reviews were generally on target. We ate outside because it was very hot inside. We had the specialty of veal bits in a cream sauce with mushrooms with the Swiss characteristic rosti, and it was very good. The beer is also great and the prices are moderate for Zurich... More

This is a typical Swiss restaurant, right in the center of Zurich (tram stop Paradeplatz, in the Banhoffstrasse). Close to the main station and the lake. Plenty of sausages of all kinds, stunning cordon bleu (my best so far in Switzerland), long menu with good variety, and OK desserts. Another great thing, it is opened until 11pm! The kitchen closes... More

If you want to step back in time and enjoy great food, this is the place. If you like veal sausages, this is the place. If you like Zurich-style geschnetzeltes, the beautiful veal and mushroom, this is the place. If you want fine dining, white tablecloths and peace and quiet, this may not be the place. But do you need... More

We made an online reservation for late Sunday lunch the evening before and got a confirmation very quickly. When we arrived, the waitress greeted us and showed us to our table. Then we had to wait for quite a while for any of the waiters to start paying attention to us and bring us the menu ... Other than that,... More

We had reservations here, which on a Sunday is maybe not necessary. It was warm so we ate outside. Food and service was excellent. You must remember to order the check since in Europe they do not bring it without asking! The reason for only a rating of 3 is because the waiter handed my cousin the credit card machine... More

Dining at the Zeughauskeller is like stepping back in time. It's NOT a place for vegans! But the Aelplermakkroni (kind of mac n cheese) are devine. The bathrooms are really tiny! Worth a visit!

I was only in Zurich for one night and really wanted to try this restaurant, and it did not disappoint. The menu was extensive witj choices from tons of sausages. The food was delicious, the beer was cold and the staff extremely helpful.

A very busy place. Luckily we went before 7.00pm and managed to squeezed a table for 2 people for us. There are many reserrvations from 7.30pm onwards. So if you don't have any reservation, go there early otherwise it pays to hhave a reservation. The food are very local delicacies. Most food comes with either potatoes fritters, fries or pasta...
