We shared a wonderful cheese fondue and bottle of red wine. The service was fast and very friendly and the food was super. Perfect location, close to the station. Would recommend and will return again, in the future.

We stumbled across this little gem whilst waiting for our train and could not have been happier with what we experienced! Young woman serving for lunch spoke fluent English and was able to translate the lunch specials for us. Ordered the schnitzel and it came with both an entree and dessert all for 23CHF. Food was absolutely delightful, and recommended... More

Unique interior decor, traditional Swiss music, authentic food specialties from the Valais region, a must when visiting Zürich! From beginning to the end a nice experience. I've enjoyed the simple, but hearty tasting food and Valaisanne wines by the glass. The service was very friendly and customer orientated. Will not wait +30 years for my next visit like this time....

This restaurant has new management, so now it is cleaner, brighter and friendlier then our last visit. Situated near the department store Globus, it is a typical Swiss restaurant. We all had cheese fondue and salads, the food was plentiful and good. They have an extensive menu and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere.

The place is very nice and cozy. I went with a friend and we shared a cheese fondue with garlic, half a liter of white wine, and a 'Kirsch' (spirit) each. The fondue was rather bad, I did have substantially better fondues at other places. It was a bit too 'liquid', even separating between cheese and liquid. The bread did... More

Very cost warm and inviting restaurant close to the station and Bahnhofstrasse. Serves good quality regional food. Service is kind and fast. It is not cheap but worthwhile.

My first Swiss fondue. It was tasty however overpriced as you have to order per head. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the restaurants is a traditional Swiss style with music and cowbells. It's one of those touristy things you have to do once because you're there but not to be repeated. Service was professional and friendly.

A menu that is almost overwhelming, so many things that whets one's appetite. Swiss classics of course, but also with interesting additions. A nice wine list, with a discount on the excellent Aalto to boot. Pleasant place, good service. Recommended.

Poor service from male server... Very rude. The Swiss special with Rosti was amazing. The lamb was too rare and had to return it 3 times
