This restaurant is a hidden gem... Not located in a touristy place, but super tasty food, nice typically Swiss atmosphere, friendly staff. We had the Spätzli and Rösti: delicious! Good value for your money, too. Definitely a place worth visiting: you'll definitely go back there.

My husband used to come here as a teenager, and brought me here on one of my first visits to Zurich. The food is excellent and they have a nice back patio in the summertime that is always pleasantly full. Closest to my heart, the staff is incredibly kind and down-to-earth -- they now take cards, I believe, but the... More

If you wish to experience the flair of the old, traditional swiss restaurant, don't miss this place. The buildig itself is an old swiss farmhouse and the 90% of the guests are swiss also. The feeling more than authentic and food is outregous. There is no table reservation but you'll be always seated somehow. You wont be sorry to sit... More

These guys serve one of the best rösti meals in the area. The atmosphere is very rural. In Summer eating outside in good weather is amazing. Friendly staff, very reasonable prices.

**** Bistro side review **** Food: it is focused on Swiss meals based on rösti and spätzli. The portion are always good in size. Personally, I took the typical Zurich dish made of sliced veal in creamy wine sauce with spätzli. It was good but honestly it is quite fatty and the sauce didn't seem to be home-made (but rahter...

Friendly restaurant with simple but good food. The focus is on Swiss specialities (rösti, hörnly, porc). We were there with our two kids (7 and 9) and loved it. Prices are very reasonable.

We went for the Metzgete, an autumn pork festival. Having read about the long lines, we arrived early but got right in. It's out of the way, up winding roads but worth trying to go. This was my second time there. A large serving of sliced pork livers with a side of roesti was very good, as was the beer.... More
