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

This is the Red Eagle, a historic Guild house of Zurich, and home to the Guild of carpenters. Fine food. My wife had delicious sweetbreads, and I had a mixed grill of Venison.Waiter was top notch as to what one would expect in a good swiss restaurant.

This is a truly special building. Worth going if only just to see the inside of the guildhall on the third floor. Really incredible woodwork, fascinating history. The dining room is a bit formal and calm but completely welcoming. Wait staff attentive and friendly. The food was satisfying and traditionally Swiss. We visited on our first night in town. We...

Had organised a corporate lunch in their Grand Guildhall and enjoyed every minute of it. The dining hall is beautiful and the set up perfect. It overlooked the Limmat and with the sun out, we could open the windows and enjoy the fresh air. We had canapés and champagne to start followed by a three course lunch. The staff were... More

The outdoor area is more casual dining, adjacent to the river and tram route. However, the kitchen remains the same. There are several team members supporting the outdoor area which normally means it is amply supported. The menu comprises a cross section of the highlights of the indoors restaurant with the specialty being fondue, salads and Zurich-Swiss specialties. For lunchtime,... More
