The food here was very good and I had the best cordon blu in a long time, but I felt the waiter serving us was very rude. We were one of the only people in the restaurant at the time and he sat down in the corner of the restaurant and just watched us the entire time. He had the... More

For Zurich, finding good food isn't difficult, but finding good and inexpensive food is. We found the Rheinfelder-Bierhaus to be one of those rare good and inexpensive food finds. We likened the quality of the German-Swiss cuisine to that of a very good American diner--large portions, served relatively fast, with a "comfort food" feel. One final note, please see that... More

My local buddy bought me here for lunch and it's a great experience. Famous dish here are veal and liver-related; however I am not into beef so would like to have pork. The chief is so nice and purposely makes me a deep fried pork chop with hash brown, ie wiener schnitzel with pork (by right it should be veal... More

The Reheinfelder Bierhaus offers good and easy Swiss food for a very fair price. The quality of the food is very good, the price is fair (given the location) and the service is also very friendly! A good place to go!

A business partner and I took a break from strolling the old town section of Zurich to enjoy lunch at the Rheinfelder-Bierhaus. We enjoyed the local "Cardinal" brew. We split the calamari and I had the Swiss salad. The salad (consisting of cabbage, beets, and sausage) was good. The calamari was rather ordinary and overly battered.

This beer house was just around the corner from our hotel and we had the house specialty for dinner on our first night - this was Veal in a Creamy Mushroom Sauce with Potato Rosti. It was delicious and our waiter served an excellent wine which he had recommended to us. Friendly staff and we started talking to 2 locals... More

When in Zurich, most travel guides will direct you to one of the fancy beer halls and guild houses, which are, in my opinion, way too expensive. Rheinfelder may not look like much on first glance and is very down to earth, but if you are looking for traditional Swiss food and beer at reasonable prices (at least for Swiss... More

We stopped here for dinner while we were walking around Zurich one evening. The service was friendly, but the restaurant was quite average in other respects.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our local guide. We really liked it. One has to be prepared to share a table with other people in that type of restaurant. Serves traditional swiss food, very tasty, very good.

... with the Rheinfelder Bierhalle just along the street. A small, unpretentious place, you may well find yourself sharing a table. Friendly, helpful and fast service. Food excellent, certainly cheaper and probably better than that served by more upmarket places. Highly recommended.
