“Our first Swiss cuisine”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We had our first Swiss meal here. We wanted to try the Swiss cuisine , traditional style. We got our chance one evening after a local suggested this restaurant. The place has a serene ambiance and a nice crowd. The servers were very warm and quick in terms of service. The food’s presentation was impeccable and the food was excellent. We had grilled pork here. Do try it. We loved it.

“Good Food”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Located at Paradeplatz this restaurant gives you a reasonably priced meal. Good selection on the menu and also has a child's menu (limited choice). The ambiance is good, noisy at peak times but a warm and cosy feeling. Since this was the old armoury the decor has various items ranging from spears to modern day gunnery. The food is good and always comes out warm from the kitchen. The staff are friendly but sometimes can be awhile till they get your order. Make a reservation because sometimes one can wait 10-30mins. It is always full so don't turn up at peak times at expect 5star service. Go there if you have time to enjoy the food and atmosphere.

“Not Quite As Imagined But Very Enjoyable”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

We had imagined this restaurant would be full of long tables with benches and frothing jugs of beer. Yes the tables are communal but are generally quite small with each seating about 6-8 people. each table is allocated a time period (about two hours) within which to eat and drink then depart ready for the table to be cleared for the next sitting - the depart times are clearly marked on the table. However, we found this was plenty of time to enjoy a large dose pf sausage and potato salad washed down with a beer.

There are a wide range of sausage and other meat based meals available and a wide range of beers are served too. The place is very busy and popular and seemed to be full of a mix of tourists and Zurich citizens alike. The service was quick and menus are available in a variety of languages.

Not quite the beerhall atmosphere we'd imagined (a slightly posher version) but enjoyable and with good food. Would recommend.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

This restaurant is perfectly located, right on Bahnhofstrasse in the heart of the shopping district. The atmosphere is also great, in an old armory. The portions are large, compared to traditional Swiss restaurants and the prices are reasonable as well. The menu is huge so everyone in your party will always find something to eat.

The food itself is not bad but there are plenty of restaurants in the area serving the same dishes at a better standard. They are just a bit more expensive. For tourists, it is a great place to go but it is always busy.

“A food heaven”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

It was a great night out at Zeughauskeller for us. A staff at the hotel we were staying in suggested this restaurant and we decided to dine here one night during our stay in Zurich. The restaurant serves big portions so it is definitely a place to try for all foodies. Do try their grilled pork. It is delicious. It is definitely value for money and we are glad we came here.
