Great fondue with a nice view

If you are looking for a good fondue with a great view of zurich this is the right place. One order of fondue is more than enough for two persons.

Sit outside and enjoy the hustle and bustle of roadside eating. Doesn't sound attractive but very much is. Beer on tap is local ad yummy - comes in two sizes. traditional menu that is small but good. The starter/drink snack tray is ideal for early evening drinking accompaniment. Brilliant salads and, well all very good. Comfy fleece chair covers when... More

Had a pleasant dinner here in the second floor dining room overlooking the River. Lovely ambiance. The menu was a bit limited but what was offered was very good. Lovely service and large portions of food. Nothing very creative here but good basic Swiss fare in a nice setting.

I had a late lunch here in their inside dining room with a business associate. It was a small restaurant with friendly and helpful wait staff. Their menu items were also indicated in English. The prices were reasonable. I ordered the pork schnitzel that was good, however I thought a bit thick. It was the regular old schnitzel. I was... More

Pregnant with history, this restaurant in central Zurich just off the Limmat River offers good food, attentive service and pleasant ambience. Our small party of four visited this restaurant for the first time and we were quite impressed. An amuse-bouche of carrot-ginger soup preceded our orders. The Nüsslisalat, our perennial favorite when in Switzerland, was excellent and so was the... More

The restaurant was great from the reservation service to the bill! We paid around 350 CHF. Personally for a meal for 6 people in Swiss its not too overpriced, and we ordered quite a bit (2 lambs, 1 veal, 3 salad, 2 soups, couple of beers and at least 5 waters), but thats just my opinion. The veal was by... More

After having graduated 29 years ago from University of Zurich, three of my classmates and I met there mid November. We sat outside, the weather still being sunny enough. The Bratwurst came very fast, was served the right way (3 without, one with Zwiebelsauce), the beers were served fast as well and the breadbasket was steadily re-stocked. No complaints at... More

Having a short coffee break, we've ordered latte and hot chocolate. Latte was not very impressive but it was nothing in comparison to the hot chocolate served as a pot of foamed hot milk with an instant hot chocolate sachet next to it, which you are supposed to stir in and drink. I'd never expect something like that in a... More

The Dinner was from out Team (work) and the chef paid, so it was perfect for me. In relation to Züris prices, the food is not way more expensive than usual (80 Franks including entre main desert). Its a really beautiful room upstairs, which is probably original (restored) from the traditional Zunfthaus and has a perfect view over the Limmat... More
