Nice to return but we should have booked ahead

I have been to Kronenhalle several times over the years and always loved the atmosphere there. We should have booked earlier as we were seated upstairs and it definitely lacks the buzz and atmosphere of the street level.

The Kronenhalle is a Zurich restaurant fixture. The food is exceptionally well prepared, the menu is extensive (as is the wine list) and the service is top of the line. After a seemingly endless flight from New York we had a business dinner. Hence, the decision to make it a light repast. The fish and risotto were just perfectly prepared... More

Have been a regular here for years. On a recent visit there was a distinctive sense that things were slipping. First, the host tried to squeeze us into a crammed table, insisting that it was exactly the same size as the adjacent one, which clearly to any rational person it was not. Then a particular dish which a member of... More

I have visited this place multiple times and it is always a "coming back" , especially to their cocktail list. It draws mostly from the classics of prohibitionism and the mix: staff, enviroment, production draws neatly into one perfect triangle. The package comes definitely with a bold price but it is the kind of place that should not be missed... More

Every time I visit Zurich I give myself one evening at the Kronenhalle. The Kronenhalle is a very traditional and old style restaurant. The food they serve is as far as I know traditional Swiss food. They have a broad selection of excellent wines. Its a great place to discover Switzerland from a culinary perspective!

Loved the service, the place, the very feel of Time gone by. Extremely busy on a week night, filled with the most elegant of patrons. Wonderful wholesome food, expect real cooking! The waiters all top class professionals whom I suspect are more than used to dealing with all kinds of famous and international clients. A must visit in Zurich, but... More

Nice food, friendly environment and quick service. Typical Zurich style plates are very good and worth to try. Too many waiters above our head though, filling the glasses all the time. I would like to have less interaction with the waiters.

We paid $300 for a bad lunch. I have been 12 times in the last 30 years to this restaurant regularly at lunch. Each time it gets worse. Yesterday we arrived and the arrogant hostess tried to squeeze us into a bankette that even 3 dwarfs would not fit well into and we are NOT dwarfs.We had to insis that... More

A Zurich institution. Not many places like this left in the world. A simple menu of exquisite classics, served as though you were still in the 1930s, to a background of 100 animated conversations surrounded by a vast collection of rare art. (There is a beautiful book by Karin Giger that tells the history of the restaurant). The adjacent bar... More

Great variety on the menu, something even for the fishlovers. It is more known for meat dishes tho. We got a cozy window table amd the service was good. The ambiente is chic but cozyy i will defininitely go again!
