In switzerland you have to get fondue. We were initially scolded that our pram was "outside the blue line" which meant a fine. As we looked- half the table was past the line... Tomato tomoto. Our waitress was not friendly but not rude, she just ... Was. Thefood was plentiful and we were able to sit for a few hours... More

This restaurant has the best fondue that you can have in open air dining across the street from the Sihl River. They have heaters and blankets to keep warm. The tables are furnished to also provide some warmth. The food is impeccable and delicious; the staff is very professional and friendly.

A lovely restaurant that has been around for years. Beautiful surroundings in wood-clad walls. Traditional service of very high quality, and beautifully prepared and served traditional food. This is certainly not your 'old cheapo' eatery, and for all this one pays a high price!

The restaurant stands next to the Limmat River in central Zurich, in a fabulous place with nice views to the rive gauche with the Fraumünster Church. In the evenings there's a pleasant hustle-bustle atmosphere, and it's easy to get to either on foot or through the excellent public transportation. The building was originally a (medieval) guildhall for carpenters; it now... More

We were a group and had our own room, that was very nice. The whole place has character and can be recommended. We had typical Swiss main dish: "Geschnetzeltes" veal with "Rösti". A visit to Zürich should include this.

We found this place two years ago on a previous visit to Zurich, and I'd been craving their cheese fondue ever since. It's an open-air restaurant on the river, great for people watching and with a cozy feel in the section that's under roof. Great place for a casual dinner. Try the truffle butter addition to the cheese fondue!

Stopped here because our tram had taken us past and we had seen the clientale drinking weissbier. So we wandred back from the tramstop and found a table on the street by the outside bar. Staff were friendly, the beer was good, company was great, the sun was shining. What better way is there to finish a day's work?!

Having tried the restaurant at the Hotel Storchen and the Kindli, my wife and I decided tried the Zunfthaus zur Zimmerleuten on our last night in Zurich. The restaurant is on the other side of the river from the Storchen where we were staying. The dining room is upstairs and provides great views of the river. The menu and wine... More
