“Picturesque place, with good quality food”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

This is basically a big pub-restaurant in the centre of Zurich, with historical furniture, that serves typical german food. Although the place is turistic, the quality of food and beer is really good, and prices are honest, considering that Zurich is one of the most expensive cities in Europe.

“Top notch and cool”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Atmosphere that of a beer hall. Food is wonderful, the service seems like it is well orchastrated and I have enjoyed myself after having gone at least 10 times in 5 years. This last time was a large group requiring two tables. It was a wonderful time and a great team building event for an international team of professionals who have substantially different cultures.

“The best place to eat Zurcher Geshnellteztes”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

I was a little apprehensive to go there at first, thinking it might be over touristy or even too loud, but I was pleasantly surprised! The waiters were very polite, welcoming and charming, they were mostofthem fluent in Swiss-German, German, French and English, which is great as my parents were with me(French-speaking), while I wanted to practice my German and my boyfriend is Swiss-German. We ordered the speciality dish which is the Zurcher Geshnelltelztes - bits of tender veal with mushrooms in a delicious yummy creamy sauce made of cream and white wine and served with rösti. It was a generous portion - good value for money, it was more than we asked for! Great beers, great ambience - it felt like in the old days, like in the Viking period, with large tables altogether and people sitting next to each other. Make sure you book prior! It is very popular not just with tourists but with locals. Their toilets are very clean, the restaurant has character and makes for a great evening out. I will definitely go back.

“One of the best in Zurich”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

This restaurant is a do not miss on a visit to Zurich. Huge place, not one of the fanciest you will find, but wonderful traditional Swiss served in more than adequate portions. Take for example the meter long sausage! Schnitzel, Roesti, Pigs knuckle (remarkable) and a menu that frustrates with a cornucopia of choices to say nothing of the beer choices and a huge flaming version served in a giant glass. Great place to go with a large group of friends, but be prepared to wait at peak times, but its well worth it!
