If you want to have a good lunch or diner and you don't want to go to the regular places in town, go visit restaurant Volkshaus. All meals are fresh cooked, using only bio ingredients. The taste of the dishes, that change every day, is delicious. A must go if you live in Zurich or if you visit the city... More

A reservation at this hotspot is very recommended, all table in the restaurant area were occupied the Thursday evening we visited. The restaurant offers good plain cuisine but very very tasty. Our visit was quite a success, we especially liked the Leberkäs, a bavarian-south-german dish. Our dishes were very tasty. Check the menu in the internet before you book: they... More

This place is a bonus if you are interested in restaurant and graphic design. Great, lively atmosphere but despite being in the cavernous room the tables were intimately spaced and it was easy to carry on a conversation with your dinning partner. Like most places in Zürich, the menu is on the pricey side for it's casual vibe but the... More

Love the place and the atmosphere. The room is quiet amazing. The food is average - and that's what you come for. The staff is very busy and we didn't find the service to be anything but average.

Prices are typical of Zurich, so the place is not cheap (expect to pay 35-45 chf for a main course) but you get much less for your money than in other restaurants. Menu is very basic although there are at least a couple of vegetarian options. No atmosphere, average service, very average food and if you like larger portions this... More

I`m often in Zurich, and this is one of the places I keep coming back to. I usually find the food very good (it may vary a bit as the menu changes with the seasons) and the recommended wines also very good. I like the look of the place, and all though some of the staff may be a bit...intimidating... More

The Volkshaus is something of an institution in Zurich, offering good Swiss food and a pleasant atmosphere. The bar area is also nice and popular with locals. The prices are average by Zurich standards and overall it's highly recommended.

We really enjoyed spending an evening at the Volkshaus restaurant. French Brasserie type with very high ceilings. The food was excellent. The prices are representative of the Swiss cost of living though...

Volkshaus is not only a restaurant but also a concert hall. So, Joe Jackson was playing (amazing concert btw) and we went for dinner at the Volkhaus before his gig. We have been there before and it never disappoints, and also not this time. I like the look of the place - service is very friendly and the food is... More
