Great sunny weekend lunch on sunny terrace balcony. Sausages and schnitzel popular among the locals from baby to grand parents. Casual and delicious, but not for calory counters.

On recommendation from a friend, this place has a long line of locals queuing up outside, always a good sign. There is space to sit around and in the alley outside but if weather permits, grab your food and head out to the riverbank or bask in the sun outside the Opera. End your lunch with a pit stop at...

This place is always overcrowded. However the only reason to eat there it s just because food here is cheaper and nothing more. e.g. 25€ for a sausage, burger and burrito. Negative that cards are not accepted.

Read previous reviews and was looking for a reasonably priced meal whilst in Zurich. Very nice selection of food, we both had currywurst which was lovely. Self service food but table service drinks, each paid separately. Nice atmosphere and a reasonable price which was difficult to find in Zurich.

This place is great if you are in a rush and you need to eat something tasty, cheap and fast. The only problem I found is that I was not able to pay with a credit card.

As a Swiss living abroad I was looking forward for the great Bratwurst the the Sternengrill in Zuerich on my short trip. Unfortunately they told me to pay cash with Euros which is outdated in todays world. The Bratwurst was as always excellent and the mustard very hot.

If you are on a budget and checking out the menus of many restaurants leaves your eyes watering at £30 for a basic Spaghetti Bolognese then head here! It's Switzerland, so be prepared that this going to cost you a little more than an Imbiss in downtown Cologne but the sausages are well worth it and prices are much lower... More

This place is known for its St. Gallen Bratwurst and hot mustard. It will not disappoint. Grab delicious free bread, a nice drink, and sit down outside and watch the people stroll by. It is a Zurich landmark that must be enjoyed at least once while you are in town. The sausages are not cheap, but are worth every bit.... More

Came here to try their sausages and was kind of in a hurry, so this worked pretty well. Prices are low (it is still Switzerland, so I am talking 13 CHF for sausage plus potato salad. The salad actually comes in a plastic container with a fork, so great for take out, but you can always sit down and relax... More
