We took a "beef fillet with fries" and asked the waitress whether we could have less fries and some salad instead. She said it was "either or", so one of us took fries and the other one salad. Upon paying, we realized that we had...More

The Wiener Schnitzel was greasy, a bit heavy on breading. Service was very good. The Wiener schnitzel was pricy for what you get at 33.50 CHF. After walking up a good hunger I found this restaurant by chance. Clean and not crowded at 7:00 PM...More

Restaurant has very simple Swiss decor, however if you want a real filet of beef or horse go here. It is reasonably expensive, like most things in Zurich, but excellent. Do not wear clothes that attract smells like wool. Given all the hot stones around...More

I went to eat at Restaurant Eisenhof yesterday night with a friend. I have never heard of the place before, although it is located opposite of one of the hip go-to places in Zurich (Maison Blunt). From the inside as well as the outside, Eisenhof...More

The restaurant is a proper "Chnelä" - rustic, old and very comfortable. The waitress is super friendly and down to earth. I would recommend to book a table in advanced since the restaurant is always busy. Another tip is to wear clothing that has to...More

Very appetizing thick sizzling steaks on hot stone with a homely atmosphere. Would have given it 5 points if it wasn't for the ridiculous argument w the boss at the end of well spent meal&drinks over the request for tap (free)water to accompany a couple...More
