After trying to find somewhere that served typical Swiss food we were directed to this place. Very basic inside, nice friendly waitress, good food and lots of it. I had pork with a sauce and sweet paprika, served with noodles and green beans. Simple and delicious. Reasonable prices for a city eatery.

This is one of our family favourites. This beer house is situated in the middle of the old town, called Niederdorf. It is always packed full with locals, tradies and intellectuals alike. The menu offers a variety of hearty German fare to please every taste. The service is friendly and efficient.

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. Atmosphere was fine. Nothing spectacular to report nor was anything bad. Decent restaurant with a good selection of menu items and drinking items

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.
