In addition to all of this, the eCHo is the proud owner of a cow living on the Hinterhuismatt-Alp, and the cheese is sourced directly from the local region. It is possible to enjoy the delicacies in an atmosphere which blends the traditional with the contemporary in complete harmony - a real Swiss experience.

You have to try a rabbit! They bring a very hot stone where on you can cook your meal with nice vegetables, potatoes and sauce.

“Excellent and gluten free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

I ate in this restaurant with my boyfriend last Saturday evening and it was a great culinary experience! We chose the fixed menu of 69 CHF with wine included, which for swiss standards is a very reasonable price.
The food was fresh and good, I took the angus steak and the meat was so tender that it was melting in my mouth...I still remember it!
Moreover the service was extremely nice, I am allergic to gluten, and as soon as I told them they prepared a gluten free bread for me and also a special soup! It was the first time that I felt so welcome in a restaurant!
I definitely recommend it!

“Great dining experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Was trying to decide dinner one night and stumbled on this one on TA. It did not disappoint! We had no reservation, but we arrived when the restaurant opened and had no problem getting a table. We were advised of the Fixed Price deal as other people have mentioned and opted to try it. And it was fantastic!

You have unlimited Swiss wine to drink and can essentially select anything off the menu. The menu is a little small but has a good variety to select from, we did not have a problem finding many things to try. This is good value and the food was wonderful. Presentation and taste was excellent. Loved the fact that the restaurant owned a cow (Gretli) and used her milk to make some cheese!

NOTE: I tried the cheese platter for dessert. I loved the condiments it came with, but be warned, it is a lot of cheese for one person, especially after eating an appetizer and main course!

“Good value, Gretli cheese, great Swiss food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

I've eaten at Echo many times because I stay at the Zurich Marriott on business. Their menu is actually great value (for Zurich!) once you get over the sticker shock of the entire country. They have an amazing special deal for 69 CHF that includes 3 courses and all you can drink Swiss wine. Additionally, they just upgraded their cheese cart to a cheese table. They even have their own cow that the staff go visit in the mountains. I'm clearly a fan and haven't found a better traditional Swiss food restaurant.

Food was refined and good. There are some elements of 'fun'. Staff seemed to be proud of their products and service, which gave us good impression. They were very friendly and helpful in choosing wine and cheese. I would definitely recommend.
