We stopped by the restaurant after a long walk in the sun. From the moment we sat down I was so impressed with the waiter who told us he was only an apprentice. But he made us so welcome and relaxed by offering sausages, lager and a brief history of the building and the guild. And despite our inquisitive hesitations,... More

I found information about this restaurant in Zurich city guide and decided to have dinner there. I tried zürigschnätzlets and rösti and it was very-very good in comparison with other cafes in Switzerland where I tried such dish before. The service was perfect: waiter explained me differences between menu choices, gave advice about the beer, allowed to change table. Prices... More

This restaurant is in the old city district of Zurich right across the bridge from the Fraumunster church. It has a great view of the old city and the channel in the evenings. The building was partially destroyed in a fire in modern history and during the reconstruction a wall painting which was hidden behind a wall was uncovered. The... More

The property's address, "Limmatquai", means we are here in the heart of Zürich. Coming here and reading the restaurant's menu (displayed outside) it is confirmed that the city is expensive. But take care to read instead the menu (displayed outside as well) of the "Küferstube und Terrasse" (ground floor, inside or outside) and you will find the prices are much... More

One has to accept that dining out in the centre of a major European financial hub will not be cheap. Having said that I can thoroughly recommend the Zimmerleuton Zunfthouse. When not a restaurant this is the headquarters and meeting house for the Guild of the Zimmerleuton and on this particular weekend is full to bursting with members and guests... More

very typical Zurich-restaurant, confortable, clean. Expensive traditional food which was good, but don't expect too much. You will get lots of potatoes on your plate in order to feed you, though the meat will be like "the icing on the cake" = very small. And we asked for a little bit more meat, but this was not possible... Maybe too... More

We were strolling around Zurich on a rainy day and came across this restaurant overlooking the river. We were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful dining room and fantastic views. Although we were somewhat late (after 1pm) we were warmly welcomed. The three of us wanted to chat and catch up and the staff could not have been nicer. When all... More

We had a quick lunch here and the food was traditional Swiss-food. The service was okay and the food was nice.

This place finally made one of my long held (and sad) little dreams come true... a real, full on chief cooked Swiss cheese fondue! It was in the middle of December, so NOT warm in Zurich, but under the front of the building there are some torch-lit arches with tables & a surprising amount of people eating outdoors despite the...

Everything's overpriced in Zurich, making meal cost here very much in line with typical local upper-tier restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff served terrific food - not memorable but close to five-star. However, the hidden bonus is that the restaurant is housed in a medieval guild house first acquired in the mid-1400s, and rebuilt in 1708 after a fire. Zunfthaus zur Zimmerleuten... More
