Fine Stop for dinner

Decent restaurant in the Alstedt section of Old Zurich. We were seated promptly as we were the only diners around 5 PM. Maybe we were early. The service was very good, the food was fine.

We loved Rheinfelder-Bierhaus! Everything was delicious from the salad and bread to our main courses! The service was wonderful and the food came fast! Beer very cold and a nice selection of wine, as well! Prices pretty par for the course for tourist locations in Zurich but the food was definitely above average! Highly recommend this restaurant!

I walked in here to have dinner after an evening walk through old town during a business trip to Zurich. It was relatively quiet at the time and I had a peaceful meal. As a vegetarian, I opted for the rosti with fried eggs. It was good, though not exceptional. Value for money is good. Service was fine, unlike the... More

A very large group of us came here for dinner. It’s a small place and typically such a large group would overwhelm such an establishment. However they coped well and everyone got their food at the same time, and service was very good. It has the feel of a works canteen and it’s rather Spartan inside. I’m told the food... More

The food was correct and very typical however the waiter was extremely unpleasant. I would not come back because of this.

I always try to get to the Niederdorf when in Zurich. The Bluetige Duume satisfies my craving for authentic Swiss eats!

A small bustling restaurant - expect to share tables - serving up good portions of decent Swiss-German rosti, spatzle, sausages, veal in mushroom sauce, steak and other standard favourites. Better salads than desserts. Bread was stale. A welcoming waitress provided sound advice on the blackboard specials. Strictly functional decor and furnishings. Good value overall for the food.

If you are looking for a traditional Swiss Bierhaus but find most of restaurants in Zurich too expensive then De bluetig Duume is a good alternative. Comparing to other similar restaurants, for example the famous Zeughaus Keller on Bahnhofstrasse, De bluetig Duume lacks ambience - the lighting is terrible, decoration is dated and the whole concept of authentic Swiss chuchi...

I must say the food in this restaurant was OK, though we couldn't enjoy it due to the rude waiter and service we had from the very beginning. Our first sin was to wait for our friends arrival (around 20 minutes). The waiter asked unpolitely where they were. He was always rude, unpolite and nasty to us... Maybe because we... More

Being a beerhouse, you'd think they'll be happy to serve you just drink. In fact we asked for 3 beers and some frittes. Turns out we had to order food and since this is not what we wanted the guy basically stood there saying he can't help us. Completely unapologetic, like we had no idea what we were doing. One...
