Delicious Fondue In Chilly Zurich

We had a great afternoon fondue here in their outdoor seating area. For cheese lovers, this is a must! Their fondue was great and they'll even bring you seconds (or thirds if you can handle it). They serve it with warm baby potatoes and bread, as well as little gherkins. The pickles were better... read more

We went there for Zurih traditional food and tried veal and rosti. We had a bottle of fine wine. Serving was great. The view from inside was also delightful and the inside the building was peaceful.

We had Christmas Eve reservations in this old guild house on the riverbank. After our arrival in Zurich, we walked around the old town and stopped to see the place we would eat dinner that night. The casual outdoor dining area was so charming that we changed our reservation from inside to outside. That night we feasted on delicious rosti... More

It's an awesome place if you would like to eat traditional swiss cuisine. We were out in winter eating fondue and we lived it. Although it is expensive the Fondue experience is good. Thy also serve other swiss dishes like rosti and rqcklete

My wife and I stopped in for a wonderful meal and bottle of wine. It might have only been 5 degrees but it felt like 15 in the sun. We were provided with rugs on our seat to ease the cold and we selected a 2010 wine at a reasonable price. We sat on the side walk which was wonderful... More

It was a sunny morning and we were looking for a place with tables outside to enjoy the sun, and this is what we got. The waiters was nice and professional, the food was very good, we drink coffee and tea that serves very well, the view and the atmosphere of the place was perfect, definitely I will come back...

Went there for a late lunch on Sunday during a short business visit to Zurich. Ordered a Roste. It was ok. The service was a little slow, but it was nice sitting out watching the nice river view.

We came here to enjoy a fondue outside and it was very delicious! I come from the canton of Wallis so I think I know what excellent fondue tastes like.. The best fondue in town. Really worth a visit! Also they have good wine.
