Have stopped here a couple of times, both in December. Sat outside with the welcoming blankets and fur lined seats. Nice hot chocolate and always friendly service.

We had a catered event here, so not the regular restaurant. This building is a great example of traditional Zürcher architecture. Very special to spend an evening here.

A beautiful old building in a wonderful location looking over the river which itself is lit by Christmas lights. Easy walking distance from the city centre but wrap up well in winter. This was a meal for 20 people in a side room on the first floor but there is a restaurant also. A lovely place to visit especially at... More

Walking through the old town on a cold winter early evening, this is the perfect place to stop and enjoy a gluhwein. Staff are friendly. Wrapped pup in the blanket provided, the location is perfect for watching people as they walk by the river whilst you sup your gluhwein. Heavenly!

We enjoyed a nice cheese fondue and some Glühwein (hot red wine punch) outside on their terrace. The staff was very friendly and fast in serving everything. Overall a very nice experience and not as touristic as other places in the Zurich Niederdorf.

Very good restaurant in a good location in the center of Zurich. Efficient service, tasty food and cozy interior. Open during the day, which is also a big advantage.

We were a group of 10 people, and it was a business dinner. Service was quick and good and the food was above average. Portions were healthy and I dont think anyone could put down another bite after deserts were carried out.

Great Red house wine, all you can eat fondue, friends around, sunny day.. what do you need more in life? Don't forget to take a kirsch next to your fondue, to dip the bread in it, or just as a digestif. Excellente service, great view and super warm blankets to keep yourself warm when sitting outside (or just take more... More

Admittedly you have to love cheese to get one all by yourself. I would recommend getting one fondue and the other person get something else. We got the bruts with onion sauce and and Rosti. In American that means sausage, sweetened cooked onions, and hashbrowns. It was decent. See the pictures. Good outdoor patio with gorgeous weather!

We ate at their outdoor annex that they call Open Air Fondue, though it has many other menu items. It's also cheaper than the fine indoor restaurant, though the kitchen is the same. The olive, parmesan and sausage appetizers were excellent, as was the baked perch dinner and the lemon-ricotta ravioli. The seating overlooking the river in the evening was... More
