The Zeughauskeller Restaurant charms with its "beer hall" type atmosphere, shared tables and bread baskets. The mustardy potato salad added the right zip in combination with the marinated pork shank. The sausage platter and rosti (hash browns) also provided a nice opening dinner for our first night in Zurich. Service was friendly and helpful. This one is a great choice for large groups and families, as well as couples who want atmosphere without fuss.

During a visit to Zurich my friend recommended this place. The time I visited before we were unable to get a table due to it's popularity, so this time we made it our main priority! After walking into the large & busy dining area adorned with military equipment from Medieval armour to a small field canon above one of the entrances we promptly ordered a local beer each. Upon recommendation and the eye catching sight of the next table a "Sword of Steak" was immediately ordered to share. The rest of the menu was probably very nice, but a sword of steak in a place such as this was an unavoidable menu choice!

After chatting and enjoying the atmosphere the meal was delivered on a 4-5ft sword! The waiter calmly sliced down the middle of the meat and it slipped off the sword like a knife through butter. It's fair to say mine and my friends eyes were stunned and our mouths wide open! What happened next was a great enjoyment of the food and drink. It was truly a unique experience and one which I like to tell my friends and family about. If I am in Zurich again I will sure make room in my arrangements to go back. If that fails at least walk the surrounding streets where the smell of steak and cooked meats is extremely satisfying and/or makes you feel hungry!

Great local food, fun atmosphere, helpful service staff. Earlier in the day had a beer on their sidewalk cafe when we looked at their menu and decided to come back. Making a reservation was probably a good choice as most tables had reservation signs however they did appear to accommodate a number of people that appeared to not have reservations. As there were only two of us, we were at a community table and enjoyed talking with a Zurich resident who came downtown for a day of shopping and always like to eat at Zeughauskeller when they could.

Excellent to go with friends or family. I recommend for tourist to taste the good food and service. Good architecture that take us back in time. People may not like to share an table with others but enjoyed the opportunity to meet locals or others tourists.
