Kronenhalle probably does not need an introduction. As a native of Zurich but having lived abroad for the last 30 years or so, it is always great to come back to my hometown and see that some things never change. Hulda Zumsteg is still omnipresent (if only on a life-size portrait), the menu is by and large the same and... More

Brought friends from London to this restaurant in the heart of the city. The Chagall Room is filled with original art on the walls and you feel transformed back in time with discrete service and beautiful traditional food. I will return with my parents in a couple of weeks' time. Expensive but worth it....

We were looking for a classic Swiss meal featuring the local specialties and Kronenhalle certainly delivered on that. The dining room is very elegant with many original paintings from noteworthy artists (Chagall, Miro, Braque, and Matisse) hanging on the walls. The art work is prominent and makes the experience feel special. We visited on a Friday evening and had a... More

It is a beautiful restaurant and lots of fantastic paintings but I can't say that the food lived up to the prices, it is nothing special and more expensive than a gourmet meal in France, it was so disappointing. Had calf liver for 55CHF - my word and then a water on top of that for 7.

Went for lunch following a friend recommendation. The two floors restaurant is decorated with originals paintings of Picaso, Shagal, Miro and others, Very impressive setting... The food itself was nice traditional dishes we enjoyed. Worth a visit for the combination of art and food

I returned there after many years. Always good. If you like to eat well in an atmosphere full of art don't miss it. The service is very good. Food delicious.

I just read the review that was called " Way overpriced for mediocre food" - I wish I had read that before I went. I completely agree. I ordered the young chicken - there was so much salt on it I could barely eat it. My travelling companion had the boiled beef which was tasteless and also over salted. Very... More

This used to be the place to be seen in Zurich. There are original paintings from the greats just hanging openly on the wall above old wood paneling. The service is four star and fancy old ladies in fur coats flirt with the wait staff. Unfortunately the food is mediocre at best. There are much cheaper places to get delicious... More
