A pricey traditional Swiss meal with fondue and meaty entree options. They messed up my husband's order but made up for by not charging us. Kid friendly spot too, very quaint and in a good location in the heart of town

We tried their Fondue and various other dishes. I was having Fondue for the first time and liked it. Between all the modern glitz of Zurich this place has got a very traditional ambience with wooden interiors. Pretty cozy actually.

A REAL traditional Swiss restaurant in the heart of Zurich! Places like this are sadly fading away in big cities...but this is the real deal! Out for a four-people family dinner, we got welcomed warmly by the waiters (who apparently speaks german, english AND italian). We ordered, of course, the typical Fondue (3 portions for 4 people were definitely enough),... More

My friend took a few of here, and it did feel like we were getting the traditional Swiss experience. The restaurant was really busy, so beware you need to book in advance. For those who aren't fans of cheese, there are other options on the menu. For those who love cheese the only thing to have is the fondue. Yes... More

We booked a place a month in advance and that was a good idea. The restaurant was full. I liked a menu, I would have ordered everything. We all took fondue (eat as much as you can) for 36 chf. But we couldn't finish even the first portion they brought to us. It was tasty. I put 4 out of... More

We were looking for a restaurant that served great fondue. Amazingly, two people I asked both enthusiastically recommended Walliser Kanne. We immediately fell in love with the intimate and warm ambiance. Our server Didier guided us through the menu. After starting with the most delicious fondue, we had tasty pasta and meat entries and a great bottle of wine. Our... More

The cheese fondue was delicious. A Chinese speaker staff was very helpful. They offered other great Swiss dishes. The restaurant is very cosy and nice atmosphere.

I eat lunch here every now and then and especially the fish option is delicious. The service is efficient and friendly. The Price is Zurich typical. My only complaint is the burger - it's really expensive for what it is.

The Walliser Kanne is perfectly located near the Main train station and provides good service and a reasonably priced swiss menu. The decor and ambiance is quite relaxing and done in the swiss chalet design.

Went to the Walliser Kanne for the first time tonight and it was the perfect start into the winter. So beautifully decorated you feel like you're in the Swiss Alps and the food was amazing. The only thing that wasn't typical Swiss: the waitress was so friendly and very attentive, which was so refreshing to see. Absolutely wonderful being there!
