This is a very cosy little restaurant and the food was delicious. Thank goodness for our waiter Andres, who spoke perfect English, because the menu was all in German. Very nice menu, staff were great but it is kind of pricey.

Thanks to TA for this small but excellent restraurant. The food here was simply devine. The menu changes every 8 weeks and when we ate there it was the first day for a new menu. Wow was it good. The chef clearly was engaged and proud of his dishes. It was lovingly prepared and presented. For my first course, I had raw scallops with a vinaigrette sauce which was tart but flavorful and enhanced the earthy flavor of the scallops. My sons had the special chicken with polental which they both rated as being possibly some of the best they have ever had. Given the number of restraurants they have visited, that is no small compliment. The service was responsive and went well beyond the call of duty. We don't speak any German and the menu was, not surprisingly, a challenge. The waitress took the time and trouble to walk us through each item of the menu. This was not easy for her (and we thanked her for taking such trouble for us).Then she was keen to ensure we had a good meal. The wine list is small but well selected and priced reasonably. Overall we had a surpurb evening. If we had stayed another day I suspect we would have returned. So don't mess around; go and have a great dinner.

This is a tiny little restaurant in the heart of the city. Make sure to book a table in advance as it is usually full! The place is very charming and the staff is just sooooo friendly. in summer you can also sit outside under the 'arcades', which is lovely on a warm summer evening.
they have a small menue with limited choices but change it quite frequently according to seasonable availabilities.
you're looking at great quality food and a nice choice of wines. I particularly like the surprise meal where you never know what's coming next. One thing is sure: we've never been disapointed!

Dined there with a visiting friend from abroad. The salad was fresh and filled with a great variety of ingredients. The lamb rack was very tender and tasty indeed. My friend had the locally-produced beef steak and raved about it.

Good wine list also a plus.

I would definitely recommend.

Great staff, great food, good wine list - this doesn't come cheap in Switzerland. Still at Metzgerstübli you pay for quality and great service rather than the name on the door. The staff really know their trade, the wine list is fantastic too. We would recommend it to anyone - a real hidden gem of Swiss gastronomic culture.
