we caught the 14 tram from the interchange outside the main station, it took 15 minutes into the suburb of oerlikon and we strolled a block to this charming place - between the chequered tablecloths and one of the waiters in traditional pantaloons its almost a costumed restaurant - almost. The ladies working there were dressed normally.

Dinner was yum - ask for an english menu if your german is non existent - you can order veal, pork or chicken schnitzels and varying accompaniments. All tasty. wine comes by hte glass or the carafe - as it should.

we totally enjoyed this place, and laughed as we said that while it may or may not be the worst schnitzel place in switzerland, it sure beats anything ever served in australia.

dinner cost us $146CHF - man, zurich is an expensive place.

Excellent - a very nice experience. Staff wears traditional clothes and you'll find yourself in an simple restaurant like you'd find in Vienna. The food though is first rate. You choose your Wiener Schitzel or its various variants they created in three different sizes. Be aware though that the biggest choice is really huge - I could not finish it. Pricewise they are very fair. The only drawback was when I was there two weeks ago was the fact that the service was a bit slow. But I'll be back in this restaurant, that's for sure!

We enjoyed outstanding snitzel at the Snitzelhuus. Our teenagers don't always like to try new things, but they both loved the snitzel. The meals are pricey, but similar to pretty much all restaurants in Zurich. The restaurant is located on a quiet corner outside the city center. The great food, particularly a Swiss favorite, is worth the trip.
