Off course Kronenhalle is a place to visit: if not because of food, but at least because of interior. It is indeed a little bit like a museum! The caisse machine is dated back to 30-40 ies, furniture is definitely there for decades and you can feel proud of maybe sitting on the same chair as those numerous famous people... More

This restaurant is priced above the usual tourist-focused city centre options. The food is also more straightforward and classic. With a lovely location, interesting interior and solid Swiss food this is a wonderful part of exploring Swiss German culture. Do try the air dried beef for starters and perhaps the veal with rösti for main.

Kronenhalle is a traditional swiss experience with wonderful history and art on display. The food is ok , portions are large and generous , and expensive even in Zurich standards. All traditional meals are available , from Veal in many variations Calf's liver, and specials for the day. Some of the dishes were not presented well, it felt more like... More

This spot is basically a museum with an affiliated restaurant. I came to see this place for the third year in a role and every time the manager (Mr Wyss) of this great awesome place provides a great level of detail regarding the history of the restaurant. It is not only informative but definitely pure fun. So ask for him... More

A venerable, traditional joint. A bit stuffy and a bit seedy but fun. Expensive, large portions just not very interesting or particularly outstanding. Do sit downstairs it is much more interesting - better art better atmosphere.

The Kronenhalle is one of the legendary places in Zurich to hang out and eat. Their bar is famous, too and if you know when you are going, it is worth reserving. A Zunfthaus, it is a great place for people watching (we've seen quite a few of the so-called 'Cervelat Celebreties' there on our visits!), enjoying traditional Swiss food... More

A very traditional room with experienced wait staff and a kitchen that knows exactly how to produce their menu mainstays without a flaw. Great food. Terrific service. Fun people watching. Don't miss going to the small bar just off the main restaurant room.

I used to live in Zurich and we often ate at this restaurant. The Sat. Bolito was especially good and very popular with the "stamm gaste". Its a bit tired now and often very sloppily prepared and served. The famous geschnetzeltes Kalbfleish was not good quality and the roesti was awful. Its still fun to be seen and to see.

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...
