Second time here. Last time was unforgettable. Place is an icon in Zurich. Big restaurant. Open space. Food was good +. I had the Wienerschnitzel which was excellent. French fries accompanied were poor. Not to my taste. I was offered rice instead which was not much better. My wife had the veal with mushrooms which she liked very much. Opening... More

This is probably a place for tourists. We were not lucky to get our reserved table in the visually attractive main hall, but in a good quiet location. Serving friendly and attentive but nothing outstanding, and perhaps not even in the range you would expect for a restaurant with this high reputation. I was the hungriest and started with a... More

We went there with a friend from abroad who wished to taste a typical meal of the Zurich region. We remembered this Restaurant with the great painted hall as a place serving authentic and really delicious dishes. At first felt proud to take our friend to this place. But then we were really disappointed by what was served now: Flabby... More

The Zum Kropf looks like a throwback to the Belle Epoque period or older in Zurich. While the setting is mesmerizing, the food is just as great. My Bratwurst with rosti was top-notch and another's veal dish was equally enjoyed. There are three dining areas on the ground floor and try for the middle one for a true taste of... More

I ate here with my old friends who live here in Zürich. One of them reserved for us one table at dinner. Staffs and Table Service was very kind and food delicious. "Geschnetzeltes Kalbfleisch Zürichart mit Rahmsoße und Rösti" for me and "Siedfleischteller", traditional boiled beef, for my friends. Bread on the Table was the Best that I ever ate.... More

A mutual friend and one who turned out to be quite the tour guide took me to this restaurant for an authentic experience. We did not have a reservation yet were seated pretty quickly. 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!

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.
