We wanted to try authentic German cuisine and this restaurant was recommended by our concierge at our hotel. It was AWESOME! The food was spectacular! We had chicken schnitzel, sausages, German potato salad and BEER! It was VERY crowded so reservations are highly recommended. The staff was ok. Hard to get their attention at times. The atmosphere was very interesting as the restaurant used to be an old armory.

How things change over the years. I travel to Zurich often for business; have been doing so for over 20 years. The Zeughauskeller once was known for reasonably priced (by Zurich standards) , well prepared traditional food gracefully served in a interesting historical building. Local people used to dine there. The only thing that has remained constant is the beautiful building . The poorly prepared food is now thrown at one by harried unfriendly waiters; no dining here.Portions are small , presentation unappetizing. Most diners are now tourists.
My zanderfillets(local fish) were the size of McDonald’s “chicken nuggets “, very hard, dry and crunchy. One could not find the fish hidden in the breading (posting a picture). My soggy mixed salad was drenched in an icky orange dressing ; I was not offered a choice of salad dressing nor a choice of when I wanted it served. I usually eat my salad after my entree which is common in Europe.
A woman dining at my table had shwienhaxe.This pork dish was minuscule, mostly bone and over cooked to the point that the meat was difficult to remove from the bone.Mustard was only offered after I suggested that it might make her food palatable.
There are many fine restaurants in Zurich , worth a visit. Sadly the Zeughauskeller is no longer one of them. Stay away!

It isnt very good, but is better than average.

Service is efficient but a little rushed as they want to flip tables asap.

Food was nice and filling....2 Main Meals, 1 x starter, 2 aperol spritz and 1 x beer £81.

Although this restaurant serves authentic Swiss food, the quality of the food is much too low for the high prices. As a local, I would not go here as it feels very much like a tourist magnet place.
