Very nice atmosphere with traditional Swiss cousin. It was first time we tried classical cheese fondue and we liked it.

We ordered a tomato fondue dish and beef stroganoff - both were very tasty. The decor in the restaurant is rustic and pleasant and our waitress was excellent.

This is a good choice if one is looking for traditional Swiss comfort food in Central Zürich: fondue - raclette - schnitzel - etc. The décor is traditional rural. The food is good but not special. Note that one doesn't melt one's own raclette cheese...More
