“Expensive but nice.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We very much enjoyed our fondue, and rosti, and beer. The crunchy scaped-off crust from the bottom of the fondue-pot was specially nice. However we paid 66CHF for 2 which is a bit steep for what is a fancy form of cheese on toast and a spud omelet. I would have preferred some salad with my meal as it was rather too rich, although delicious. I was annoyed to get charged 3CHF for tap water. We also ate at Hiltl which I preferred.

Dear lesleymarr

Thank you very much for having taken the time to write your feedback on TripAdvisor.

We glad to hear that you liked our fondue.
Regarding the price range is our restaurant, compared to others, still in a lower price categorie here in Zurich.
Maybe there was a misunderstanding or a lack of information regarding the tap wather. We have a promotion going on from ZH2O which calls "drink & donate." Part of that money will be donated to a nonprofit organisation for people who don’t have much access to water as we do.
Please see the webpage: www.zh2o.ch
The Hiltl is a vegetarian restaurant and has a completely different concept as our Swiss style restaurant.

Once again we are very thankfully for your comment and we hope to see you back soon again.

Kind regards

Your Swiss Chuchi Team

“A Super Swiss traditional food experience”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We had a one night stay in Zurich and wanted to have fondue for dinner. Tourist information directed us to Swiss Chuchi in Adler Hotel. It was a very nice experience from top to bottom. The restaurant is located in the middle of the city on a walking street. You can sit outside. There were many tourists. You can eat cheese fondue,raclett or meat fondue as well as other Swiss specialities. We have ordered cheese and meat fondue which we like both of them. Our smiling waitress ?Gerda helped us very much both in choosing but also explaining how and what we we were eating. Prices are not cheap but it is Ok. My daughter thought that it was a big fun. I would recommend Swiss Chuchi if you are in Zurich and if you want to try fondue. It could be dangerous for small children though.

“funny name but great food”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

tried authentic Swiss cheese fondue here! and got a complimentary dessert as part of the Zurich Day card scheme. Dont know if it is still valid. the quantity was whopping huge! lots of cut breads. the staff was considerate enough to demonstrate the right way of dipping the breads in the cheese. i ordered a ham-based preparation and it was simply delicious. though the heavy smell of cheese weighs on the ambience all the time. yet, it was great value for money in the Niederdorfstrasse area.

Dear Susmita S

Thank you for another positive feedback. We will pass it on to our service and kitchen team.

The explanation and demonstration of how to eat the typical Swiss dishes is part of the dining experience at Swiss Chuchi and we are glad that you valued this special customer service.

Moreover, you are absolutely right. If you want to eat inside of our restaurant you definitely should like the smell of cheese. Our most sold dishes contain cheese, hence we cannot avoid its smell.

We would be looking forward to welcome you back at Swiss Chuchi.

Kind Regards,

Swiss Chuchi Team

“Best place to try Fondue”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

It was our first experience of a fondue. We went to this place at the recommendations of the guy at the tourist information center. The snow falling outside, pots of piping cheeses on our table, and the ever-smiling and ever-courteous staff made this a very memorable dinner. The place serves an excellent fondue, however, it's very crowded and the seating is cramped. You will be rubbing your elbows with those around you and unwillingly be a part of their conversations. But, do visit, if you are in a mood for fondue and please make reservations in advance (we had to wait for 45 minutes to get a table). And yes, considering the fact that you are in Zurich (read- one of the most expensive cities), you will find this place reasonable.

Dear RichaSri

Thank you very much for your positive feedback.

We have a great team spirit at Swiss Chuchi and are pleased to hear that you could sense that through the way our staff served and treated you.

As you wrote our restaurant can get quite busy, hence to book a table in advance is highly advisable.

Furthermore, we are fully aware that we do not have very spacious seating possibilities. However, it adds to a typical Swiss dining experience. Isn’t it like you would be sitting in a cozy wooden cottage in the Swiss Alps?

Hope to see you again at Swiss Chuchi.

Best Regards,

Swiss Chuchi Team

“A VERY PLEASANT EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We visited this restaurant on Wednesday last. We had a wonderful time there and it was a great experience to have something different. The waitress we had was really helpful with the menu and how to eat the food. We cant say a bad word about her, she was a delight. By Zurich standards the bill was reasonable.
