Although we were told it connected to workers party prices certainly not low. We opted for lunch rather then the breakfast which is standard eggs bacon etc. The meat loaf with fried potatoes was mediocre more like supermarket food!! It not really a meatloaf but german version. Not minced meat. The meat balls with mashed potatoes had three meatballs and... More

They generally have still space for brunch while all other options in Zurich are packed, and that's it. The rest is an average fine: staff is friendly but not extremely welcoming or enthusiastic; ambient is nice but they need to do something about the ceiling; and food... the most expensive (and you would expect the richest) brunch option is an...

I just attended this basically very nice place in order to celebrate 'Martini'. The 'martini-goose' unfortunately was not at all great: extremely dry and cold. The wine and the service, however, were nice.

the restaurant is set up in such a way that the noise level is so subdued and the 70s feel makes this place one the most enjoyable restaurants of Zurich. Really worth coming here. The menu is thoroughly enjoyable (especially the desert)

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.
