One thing to realize and quickly get over is the price, as everything in Zurich (As in all major cities in Europe) is expensive. My wife and I only had one day in this beautiful city, and it was not enough and wish we could have stayed a minimum of 3-4 nights. With that said, we wanted to experience a traditional Swiss/German meal and we were recommended this restaurant. It was very busy, so highly recommend a reservation and unlike in the US where you have you own table, you will find yourself sharing a table with several people as we did not mind as we had a chance to meet other people from different countries. The meal was unbelievable, hearty, and delicious. Make sure to try the bread, but is an option as its already on the table so if you do not plan to eat it, don't touch it. Unlike in the US where bread is provided for free, its not in Europe. We had the pork shank with potatoes and it was to die for. Our waitress was kind, funny, and was very helpful with guiding us with the traditional plates, etc. When we visit again, we plan to eat here again.

Was taken here by a friend while visiting him in Zurich. The building has old history to it and there is a collection of old armour and weapons on the walls. It has a tradition decor and the food, although only my friend ate, appeared good and my friend enjoyed it. Beer selection is good and plenty of it local, prices are reasonable and service great. Would recommend

Over 30 Swiss Francs (£23) for a plate of rosti and pretty much any breaded meat of your choice... Very expensive for average food. Beer over priced too, but you're paying for a very lively, fun environment with good service and friendly fellow diners - you'll be sharing a table. Enjoyed it late at night with footy on the big screen but this is a place you'll probably only visit once.

Not the best food Zurich has to offer, but it is good, atmosphere is really great, loud but fun. Went there on a Saturday night during Zurich and it was really crowded. We were seated right away and our order was taken very quick. I had the pork ribs and my daughter had the roasted lamb. Both very good, the sauce on the side for the ribs was great. It is a fun place with a lot going on and is a very traditional Swiss restaurant. I would say it is well worth the trip!
