“Spoilt for choice in the Area”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

There are a number of restuarants in the area offering much the same fare and the same prices. But judging how full Chuchi was- people waiting for tables when I left and a number of locals, it was a good choice.
Good menu of local foods, nice and affordable wine list. Service a little under pressure when the restaurant was full but waiter apologetic to thers who seemed to be in an unnecessary hurry.
Cosy environment and I had an excellent cheese fondue.

“Fun Restaurant in Zurich!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have to admit, we are like homing pigeons when we are in Zurich. However, good experiences = return visits! My husband I were in Zurich (again :-) and we had the pleasure of dining in this restaurant a couple more times. Yes, due to the exchange rate (USD to CHF), it is expensive, however, worth it. The food was really good and to our surprise, our favorite server was working. His name is Bepary and he took good care of us! He is very nice and attentive and made our dining experience extra special! The fondue was one of the best I have had in a long time!
The restaurant is always very busy and reservations are recommended.

“nice food, service erratic”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

had a lovely raclette for lunch here in a snowy zurich.Service was slow but this was to not having enough staff (only 3 serving a full restaurant). It focuses on swiss fondues/raclettes and does it very well. Our waiter was very friendly and the portions huge so you wont leave hungry

the restuarant is based in the old town, about a 5 minute walk from the train station, could do worse if you are looking for a "swiss style" lunch

“Fondue was good, but too much potato in the dishes and high prices”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We stayed in Zurich briefly moving to Konstanz, so we tried to find a restaurant with authentic Swiss food. The tourism information booth introduced this restaurant. We ordered dishes as recommended by the waiter. We loved fondue a lot, so we ordered another. But in other dishes, such as a sausage dish in the picture, half of the dish was filled with fried potato. The waiter even suggested another dish with potato and cheese. So, after we almost finished the dishes, what was left was a lot of fries. Also, compared with other restaurants in other areas, price was quite high. I would definitely try other restaurants if I go to Zurich in the future.

“What can be better tahn a fondue or knockwurst in wine sauce”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

When in Switzerland eat Swiss dishes.
This was a perfect restauirant in Old Town.
Some of our friends eat the typicsal fondue of beef, lam , chichen in hot oil with numerous dipping sauces. Two had knockwurst in dark wine with oinins.
There were numerous side dishes as well as a large assortment of desserts.
Staff was great and decor was typical Swiss.
Highly recommended , but make reservation on wekends between 5-8PM otherwise just walk in or sit outside weather permitting.
