“Loved it!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Loved the brunch. Great menu...eggs benedict, pancakes were awesome, bread basket with chocolate chip banana bread (don't miss that btw).
Ended up back again because of the beer menu. Tons (like 30, I think) of craft/micro brews covering every palate. And then, of course, needed something to snack on...spinach dip...just get it and thank me later.
Friendly staff and the owner was enthusiastic about both the food and the beer selection and happy to help out with recommendations when asked. And they were spot on.
Great find...thanks Trip Advisor!

“Outstanding restaurant!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Finally an amazing restaurant in Zurich that has great food, coffee, craft beers, wine, and service. I've had lunch and dinner here and can't wait to try the famous Sunday brunch. I love that all of their ingredients are sourced from local farms and purchased at the market daily. Their lunch menu changes weekly and I had the ginger and lemongrass salmon with asian sauce and the homemade warm hazelnut chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. For dinner I had the halibut sandwich with a homemade bun and ordered the organic french fries - delicious! The outdoor beer garden is a great place to soak in some sun, enjoy delightful food and craft beers, and good friends. Highly recommend!

“An off the beaten track place for GREAT micro brews”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I have been missing the English pubs since I moved from London to Zurich last year, but with my discovery of the Fork and Bottle this week, I have finally found a place to enjoy good ales and delicious pub food. The Fork and Bottle is a bit off the beaten track, but it is close to a train station (Zurich Brunau) and bus stops. If you are looking for a wide selection of interesting beers, this is the place to visit.

Eating and drinking in the back garden has an English country pub feel as it is located right on the edge of ta Wald and the Allmend / Brunau playing fields.

I am looking forward to my next visit very soon!

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Fork and Bottle is a great restaurant with great food, a great wine and beer selection, and a great atmosphere! We've not made it in for brunch yet, but are so happy to have a place to go on a Sunday afternoon to grab dinner (not many casual places open on Sundays!) The weekly lunch specials are amazing. Fork and Bottle never disappoints!

“Great place, outstanding craft beer”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I visited the Fork and Bottle on a Thursday evening in late July. I had read about the great selection of Swiss and Italian craft beers, and the selection was outstanding. The owner is very friendly and eager to discuss the beers and his restaurant with anyone. The setting of the restaurant and beer garden is beautiful. I highly recommend a visit here for anyone interested in some excellent food paired with great craft beers.
