Greasy food in laidback surroundings

This restaurant is located on a hill at easy walking distance from Zürich's main train station (but, for those unwilling to climb the street slopes, it is also served by at least two tram lines). My sister and I had dinner one calm Tuesday evening and only three tables seemed to be occupied at any... read more

If you like hamburguer you should try one of the options from crazy cow. The place is very simple where often you have to share a big table with other people, but definitely not a problem. The combo with fries is big enough for a hungry person.

Cheap fat industrial food at the price of a michelin restaurant. One of my worst experience ever. Even a lower price it would still remain a scam.

Good food, okay service. Nothing super special about this place. The decor and tongue in check menu try to make up for standard food. Decent amount price, for Zurich that is. Open late and foreigner friendly.

Very friendly staff, speaks also english and french. Typical swiss food, pretty good. Serves until late, which is nice when you arrive late in the city. I liked the decoration a lot. Very clean toilet (possibly the best I have every seen in switzerland!) If you stop by for an early diner, try the "pic nic basket" which is a... More

Visited the restaurant with a colleague. The decor is little bit outdated but i thought we get over it...what I could not get over is the first impression, that i was going in a place that did not feel 'clean'. The menus felt sticky in our hands and maybe we should have walked out. But we did not. The food... More

I haven't been to Crazy Cow for a few years and though it was time to pay a new visit. The decor takes some getting used to - basically it's a huge comic book. The German menus are written in Swiss dialect. Really funny for those who understand because a lot of the food item titles are play on words.... More

My husband and I ordered the macaroni and cheese with onions and apples because it sounded amazing. It SOUNDED amazing. It tasted bland and lifeless. I won't touch the fact that it's penne, not macaroni-that's just not important unless you are REALLY into your pasta. What is important is that it has no flavor whatsoever beyond pasta and very boring,... More

Unfortunately my experience in this place was not good at all. Indeed the place inside is very peculiar and has a lot of funny decorations, the service is also nice and jovial, but unfortunately the food is not good at all (and the prices were a bit high). I also ordered a milkshake and I totally disliked it. In general... More
