Popped in for a late lunch. The Apfelschorle (apple juice and soda) was particularly good, fresh cloudy juice rather than the long-bottled variety. A venison ragout with the autumn trimmings was everything it was meant to be, the noodles buttery and the red cabbage sharp,...More

It's an informal, woodlined, traditional 'Beiz' with a few tables out on the narrow cobbled Rindermarkt in the old town, 'Niederdorf'. The menu is simple Swiss-German traditional dishes, not a huge choice but satisfying if that is what you are seeking. There are good wines...More

I enjoy eating here when in Zurich. The food is consistently reliable and the service unobtrusive and friendly.

I've tried a lot of shrimps coctails in my life. I found now the best one. I cant imagine that it can be even better somewhere. It's worth coming even just try it. Nevertheless there are other great dishes and the service is very professional...More

Our desk person at our hotel, the Plattenhof, suggested the Bauerschänke for a mid-priced authentic Swiss meal and urged us to order the Geschnetzeltes à la zurichoise, which she described as chopped up potatoes, a Zürich specialty. It turns out it was an order of...More

I found this place accidentally. It's a very unassuming place from the outside, but once I sat down and looked at the menu I was glad I found it. They have a nice selection of local dishes. The lunch service was fast and the food...More
