One of the "old classics" of Zurich

Unique place ! Where else can you dine under a Chagall painting ? The food is quite nice for such a place, with a few classic dishes like "Beef Stroganoff" of the "Zürcher Geschnetzeltes with Rösti" Unfortunately the warm welcome has become very poor lately, the new "managers" are highly... read more

Overrated expensive food. Your own decision. If you are rich, you find yourself happy. If not, invest the money and invite yout family at "molino" for pizza.

I was there with two friends, the restaurant was empty, the food was not to our liking, and the prices are simply astronomical. A restaurant lives and dies by the quality of the food it servces, and I suspect this restaurant has been leaning heavily on the original artwork.

Kronenhalle is a good place to experience traditional Swiss cuisine. Most of the dishes we had, including ravioli, rosti (Swiss hashbrowns), and Café de Paris steak, were excellent. The small strawberries that we had for dessert were great as well. The service was very friendly and our family of four had a very satisfying dinner. I'm glad we went before... More

No visit to Zurich is complete without a pilgrimage to this grand dame. The atmosphere is old school, the art is original and impressive and the geschnetzeltes and rosti (sliced veal and hash browns) are the items that help keep bring us back. This restaurant was Neiman Marcus' Stanley Marcus' favorite in Europe. The prices are reasonable (by Swiss standards)... More

My wife and I chose Kronenhalle Restaurant for our last dinner in Zurich and we were very glad we did. We found Kronenhalle to be a very warm and very pleasant experience. Our experience was an exceptional one because, not only were we invited to dine, but we were also encouraged to relax and enjoy our dinner. How often has... More

everything in this restaurant exudes art: the bar, the menu, the wine, the food and the walls. The wine with the name of the house, a very good burgundy, combines with rösti, the best I've ever eaten. The service is impeccable.

This is probably the place where I tasted the best rosti! Expect a true Swiss fare with impeccable service. As you eat, you will be able to appreciate all the exquisite paintings that adorn the walls of this 90yr restaurant. Let all your senses come alive at Kronenhalle!

The hotel concierge recommended this restaurant. What a disaster we paid 62 Swiss Franc for an ordinary stake and chips eat. The food was not bad but also not good but the price made it unpalatable. It is obviously a tourist trap for wealthy tourists as it costed 243.00 Swiss Francs for two including a bottle of house wine (... More
