Popped by here with the parents but we were a bit disappointed. It was fairly standard Zurich prices (i.e. expensive) and whilst the rösti was nice the rest was a bit tasteless. The service was also very slow - despite there being surplus of staff. Definitely far better places to eat in Zurich.

What a find We walked down to see the Grossmunster and found this gem whilst taking photos by the bridge across the river Not cheap but what is in Switzerland Highly recommended but be aware that everyone smokes so downwind unless you want a face full

must eat upstairs in lake view dining room, swiss elegance and service at it's best. Not to mention the most mouth watering dish I have had in a long time. I think it is called Zurich Geschnetzeltes, amazing rosti arrives in copper skillet, with sautéed veal in delicious gravy. I am still thinking about it!

Opposite Fraurmister. Perfect for a night relaxing. My vote for the most attractively positioned res in restaurant in Zurich. Impeccable service and welcome.

The 4 of us had a bit of everything, I loved the fondue and roti. It was lively with friendly staff - expensive but that's Switzerland.

We had a delicious dinner here, and my son fell in love with their fried perch. We would heartily recommend this restaurant anytime.

The outdoor seating is great. Even in cooler weather, it's under a covered area, and blocked from wind. The food was good, and the service was good. Our waitress spoke great English and had a good sense of humor.

While out and about one afternoon we were caught in a downpour. Standing in the arcade in front of Zunfthaus zur Zimmerleuten we decided to pop in to the Küferstube for a drink and maybe a nibble. Had a couple nice gin & tonics (good with Fee Bros. tonic water) and then added on a wurst and some pommes frites.... More

Our first visit was over 10 years ago and the Zunfthaus has remained one of our top ten restaurant experiences. This visit did not disappoint. Food and service were excellent. The manager was exceptionally welcoming.

Service was very friendly. Location is great, right by the river. Outside seating area is great for people watching and the food was good. They even had vegan options.
