Used to be a gem only visited by locals, now thanks to Tripadvisor also a lot of tourists visit it. Nevertheless, still charming as on day one and the food is still great. One of the best locations to eat authentic Swiss cuisine at fair prices.

definitely, niederdorfstrasse is not a good street to eat in zurich. after several bad experiences in other restaurants in this street i returned after several years to this traditional restaurant, that some years ago was somehow acceptable. the service was poor, always busy and did not pay much attention: they had to spend too much time with large groups of...

We had a group of 8 family member with varying tastes and all of the meals were good. Try the liver dishes or the pork knuckle (Schweinshaxe) -- they're especially good.

Rösti is one of those quintessentially Swiss dishes (grated potatoes fried on both sides and topped with a dollop of cheese or sauce) that you can easily do at home -- but which is also gratifying to have in a restaurant that pretty much specializes in it, together with some Swiss-German/German specialties. If I'm going to dine out and have... More

I was told to try the rosti by my local colleagues, and had a very good one here. The rosti is basically potatoes, and can be a bit dry, but they serve it with a mushroom sauce which makes it much better. Staff could be more friendly, though - it looks like you need to get up and leave quickly... More

The title says it all. The pork cordon bleu was crispy, tender and stuffed with heaps of tasty molten cheese. The veal filet slices in a cream and mushroom sauce was just as good. French fries and rösti were impeccable, crisp on the outside, soft but not dry underneath. All was pretty quickly served, piping hot and of generous size.... More

Located very close to old town near the station. This restaurant has quite a bit of options for vegetarians. I am a vegetarian. I got excellent mushroom and cheese with pasta. The raclette was also excellent. A meal for 2 with beer would cost close to CHF 60

As we walked in on Xmas Eve, it was packed. I was thankful many restaurants in Zurich were open till late on Xmas Eve. Heaven forbid me to be in Helsinki at that time again - it's a ghost town (yes, even convenience stores are closed). Anyway, I digressed. Though it wasn't all smiles, the wait staff was kind enough... More
