We had dinner sitting outside on a Sunday evening. The wait staff was extremely friendly and helpful; the food was excellent. Zurich is expensive, and this was a good choice for great food at a reasonable price (for Zurich).More

The wait service and the fondue were excellent. The waitress and the manager were delightful and spoke English well. I wasn't too happy, though, with the bill -- seemed overpriced to me. That said, all of Zurich is overpriced and kind of kitsch-y, in the...More

Came here for a typical Swiss meal on the day we arrived in Zurich. Decided to sit outside - which was our mistake because there were so many smokers. While this is clearly not an issue from the restaurant, it detracted from enjoyment of of...More

We had the Fondue and the Schnitzel, and they were both wonderful. Our waitress was awesome and spoke fluent English (for all of those finding the German hard to grasp). The fondue is all you can eat, so bring an appetite!
