A good evening

After a day's hard work, 23 of us spent a couple of hours enjoying the food and wine in a very comfortable atmosphere with very friendly staff. The food had been pre-ordered and there was no delay. The location in old Zurich is idyllic. The restaurant is worth discovering.

Great place to eat in a nice street. The atmoshpere is a bit "alternative". Service is very friendly. My partner was the only one with make up.

We wandered into this local joint last night, after exploring the old city. Like many of the restaurants in the area, it was fully booked and they had to squeeze us in. The staff were charming and the service was very good. The building itself is airy and light. I would describe the food as tasty but basic. Portions are... More

We had dinner at Wirtschaft Neumarkt Restuarant tonight based on a Rick Steve's recommendation. We sat outside in the back under the chestnut trees. It was extremely pleasant, unpretentious, with great food and really friendly and good service. The waiter was a very young, earnest fellow who spoke multiple languages. He was friendly and surprisingly professional for his age. A... More

Heard about this restaurant frequented by locals -- what better recommendation than locals eating at a restaurant! We were not disappointed. We ordered the specials on the menu -- rabbit and the fish which happened to be plaice. Both dishes were excellent in preparation and presentation and of course eating. The waitress recommended local wines to go with the dishes... More

Food is good, had a wonderful fish with a nice tomato/caper sauce, liked the fact that they have a really nice mini-dessert (different every day) for people who just want something sweet to end the meal. Nice local wines and very friendly service. Inside it looks rather formal, but if weather permits the best part is the patio in the... More

This restaurant has a really nice outdoor location! All the staff were friendly, unfortunately the food was average. Maybe I'll go back to try it again...

Went for lunch, fresh delicious food, very healthy, and reasonable for Zurich (16-24 francs for lunch entrees)-since everything is expensive here. The backyard patio is green with trees and quiet. You need to use your gps to find it, but it's not far off the main shopping street.

I organize a dinner event for 15-20 people once a month. Based on the reviews in TripAdvisor, I decided to go there on Friday August 1, 2014. They sent me an offer, in which they have mentioned: "[after 16:00 of the event day] we allow ourselves to add 50 CHF to the bill, per each person who does not show... More

Wirtschaft Neumarkt, in Zurich's appealing older Niederdorf neighborhood, gets passing marks in mainline guidebooks. Based on a late-June dinner, it deserves far better. The clientele is local, not tourists. The room is appealing—a few steps below street level, whitewashed foundation stone and some exposed timbers. There is very attractive outdoor seating, but not suitable on the rainy night of our... More
