The Kronenhalle restaurant and its legendary bar are famous all over the world. Since 90 years, it has been Zurich’s preferred meeting point for. If you seat in the brasserie you feel like being in Paris. Whats really unique is, that the Kronenhalle shows its own Art Collection in the Restaurant. So you seat between Chagal, Miro, Picasso etc. The... More

"See and be seen" is the Motto. Rarely you don't see any well known face in the main room. Your lunch or dinner is of second importance to the paintings you will find on the walls - most from famous painters who have visited the Kronenhalle and left a Thank You to Mrs Zumsteg - the famous landlady who looked...

Was invited to Kronehalle was New year evening celebration and it was such a memorable experience. The food is very traditionally prepared and service is very attentive and friendly. You have to try their chocolate mousse, which is so smooth and was melting in the mouth that it was probably one of the best chocolate mousse I have ever had.... More

We were told that this is a traditional Swiss restaurant. I think its an institution that is now resting on its fame. The food is OK. Service was very poor (sloppy) and very rushed. We were out within 1hour. I would not go again.

We went to the well known Kronenhalle last night, expecting a good meal accompanied by good wine. It started suspiciously - we got a table upstairs, where it was quite evident that most of the diners were foreigners. Down stairs at the big dining hall was a very different atmosphere, that's where I suspect they seat the locals and more... More

This came highly recommended in a Zurich travel guide, but it missed the mark a little for us. Our food was fine, but nothing special with the possible exception of a deliciously light and creamy chocolate mousse. Overall, it was expensive for what it was. The service was good.

One of the classic restaurants in the city center. Great interior. Food is traditional, local fare. Service was below standard - though the gentleman was very attentive, helpful and nice - as soon as the place becomes busy, it is obvious that the place understaffed (for such prices you'd expect more .....).

We had a wonderful experience several years ago in this restaurant when Yves Saint Laurent was seated near us. He saw us admiring the paintings and asked the maitre d' to give us a tour of the many works of art on the restaurant walls. The paintings by Chagall, Miro, Picasso and others are still there, but the ambiance of... More

We went to the bar on a recommendation from a friend, we are really glad we did. We arrived around 4pm so it was a little slow at that time, but we got more than attentive service from our bartender Christian. He spoke english well and provided spot on cocktails with some great appetizers. The walls were adorned with original... More

My meal at the famous Kronenhalle goes down as the best meal i have ever had as a world traveler. The atmosphere has old world charm meets modern amenities. Our service was impeccable. The food was cooked to perfection and the lamb lettuce salad was delicious. You definitely get what you pay for. Following dinner i indulged in a few... More
