Visited for dinner. Didn't have a reservation but was able to be seated. Would suggest booking ahead. Food was good, not amazing. Service was good. Ambiance was amazing. Worth the visit to see. Fairly priced.

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

The restaurant zum Kropf is a popular place for Swiss traditional food, especially with business types. The decor is very nice and slightly more cozy than the close by Zeughauskeller. I found the food okay, but overpriced. Other traditional places with similar fares, such as the Bierhallen in Niederdorf or the Zeughauskeller are equal or better in quality for a... More

We were taken there by friends as a good example of traditional Zurich food. The decor is interesting and decorated with ceiling artwork and historical paintings on the walls. The service was excellent and the food good. Good selection on the menu. We chose three different meals and all good.

If you are looking for a good alternative to the Zeughauskeller (which is a tourist trap tbh) heres the right spot. Very old and "urchig" place. A bit expensive. The service could have an upgrade. Reservation highly recommended

We had a quite large table for four and next to us was a party of eight. So it was a bit loud. The food was very good prices are OK for Zurich and the service was efficient and polite. Some of the dishes are typical from Zurich but for the rest I would call it Brasserie type food.

It was Friday at noon in August and this well known old guard restaurant bekons guests to go to their roof terrace. I chose a seat inside the restaurant. It was almost empty. We ordered vitello tonato which looked ok; but the special offering of EGLIFILETDS, a local fish from the lake , filet and battered and the deepfried could... More
