We shared a circular table with another couple, which both parties were open to. I had speck which was good and super filling! The restaurant is... More

The restaurant's historic decor of wooden paneling, marble columns, ceiling murals and stained glass windows create a wonderful fine dining atmosphere. The menu offers a wide variety of Swiss Fayre. A must visit in Zurich!

I think it's the best value for money restaurant in Zurich. The roof decoration is awesome, the food quality is fine ,service polite trying to explain the dishes and decent reasonable prices for Zurich. Absolutely recommended!!!

For those who prefer a more tranquil and elegant alternative to the busy Zeughauskeller, zum Kropf serves delicious local dishes in a lovely setting. Meal prices are fairly reasonable prices by Zurich standards. We ordered the Geschnetzeltes Kalbfleisch Zurcherart with Roesti (Veal cooked in traditional way with creamy mushroom sauce). Our meal was delicious. The portions were abundant. The restaurant... More

Good service (and we were a big group), food excellent, wine good. A very typically "Swiss" menu, if that is what you are looking for.

A typical Zürich Restaurant! It's a must while staying in town. Book a table in the front part of the Restaurant. In the Summer they have a very nice terrace. I always eat the calfs liver with Rösti!

We ate at this restaurant based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We found that it had a gorgeous ambience, good quality food and good service. However, we also found it to be overpriced, but typical for downtown Zürich. The average entrée is priced right around $25.

Visited for a business dinner. Wonderful venison carpaccio to start followed by traditional sliced Zurich-style veal with rosti main course. Actually forgot about the Swiss second plate tradition so was pleasantly surprised when I was offered more of the veal. Would definitely recommend, but as with everything in Zurich - it's on the expensive side.

Visited this location last week for an evening meal whilst in Zurich on business. It servers traditional Swiss food (with lots of Germanic influences) and is not so rowdy/loud as the tourist location - Zeughauskeller - just down the road. The prices are a little high (thats partially because its Zurich!) and the food is more 'home cooked style' rather... More
