I was here for lunch with my team from work. There were about 5 different fixed menus to choose from, and I selected the veal saltimbocca with polenta. Everthing was deliciously prepared, and I can recommend this place for a classic Swiss meal.

Restaurant Münsterhof is located in the heart of Zurichs Old Town, near Paradeplatz. Built in the 13th century, the two main rooms of the restaurant combine traditional and modern interior elements with a focus on art (Hodler, Rederer etc.). The cuisine is focused on Zurich and mediterranian dishes and recipes made from local ingredients and delivered by local suppliers. Our small team around Host Lara and Chef Stefanie make you feel at home and try to fulfill all your wishes and needs.
