Traiditional Swiss food, excellent staff in PRIME location

Happened to be near the opera house, looking for a good restaurant, pulled out tripadvisor and the top rates place 'near me' was here. Called for reservation since its typically full and they were able to accommodate in 30m. There is a lot of traditional german swiss food, with a unique old... read more

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2015 NEW

We had dinner at this restaurant on Saturday and were very disappointed. The service was friendly, we were served by a very nice young lady. We ordered the prawn cocktail, very generous portion but very tasteless and just too much of a very ordinary cocktail. My wife ordered the asparagus which weren't on the menu but were available after I... More

A little overpriced but worth the splurge to eat in such a setting with original works of art hanging over your table. Food was good but not great. Same for the service. Consider part of the dinner cost a museum admission.

A colleague who lives in Zurich took me to Kronenhalle for dinner, explaining that it's the most traditional Swiss restaurant in town. The rooms are beautiful, the waitstaff polite and efficient (clad in white jackets) and the food was very good. I had the famous sliced veal and roesti, which was excellent.

Friends who live in Zurich included Kronenhalle in their list of "musts." They also emphasized the necessity of booking a table in the front room or brasserie for its charm and beauty. We made a reservation and requested a table in the front room upon booking by email. The reservation was confirmed, but upon our arrival on Saturday evening, April... More

Traditional Swiss, upper class,difficult to get into ! For some but not for others :-) The signature veal dish is a must, make sure you haven't eaten for the whole day though as its a double portion. The daily special starter is strongly suggested , I had my daily dose of avocado

Zurich is, so far, after four days, not impressing me as a restaurant town, and especially not as a vegetarian restaurant town. This place started me down the path to changing my mind last night. I was there for a business dinner with a group of 20 people or so and a fixed menu, it is always hard to provide... More

We were fortunate to search and choose the Kronenhalle for a lunch in Zurich - this restaurant was pointed me by a friend as the best for swiss food in city. Couldn't be a better option . The house is very charming , with several authentic paintings decorating. The location is good . We were exceptionally well attended by Thomas,... More

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. However, the reason I was there - for their famous "veal Zurich" didn't disappoint. It was excellent. I cannot fault the restaurant... More
