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

OMG the fondue is very good and the restaurant has a nice view on the lake. We had dinner outside even if it was raining but the atmosphere was relaxing. Fondue was served with bread and potatoes.

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.

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!

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.
