My friend took a few of here, and it did feel like we were getting the traditional Swiss experience. The restaurant was really busy, so beware you need to book in advance. For those who aren't fans of cheese, there are other options on the menu. For those who love cheese the only thing to have is the fondue. Yes... More

We booked a place a month in advance and that was a good idea. The restaurant was full. I liked a menu, I would have ordered everything. We all took fondue (eat as much as you can) for 36 chf. But we couldn't finish even the first portion they brought to us. It was tasty. I put 4 out of... More

We were looking for a restaurant that served great fondue. Amazingly, two people I asked both enthusiastically recommended Walliser Kanne. We immediately fell in love with the intimate and warm ambiance. Our server Didier guided us through the menu. After starting with the most delicious fondue, we had tasty pasta and meat entries and a great bottle of wine. Our... More

The cheese fondue was delicious. A Chinese speaker staff was very helpful. They offered other great Swiss dishes. The restaurant is very cosy and nice atmosphere.

I eat lunch here every now and then and especially the fish option is delicious. The service is efficient and friendly. The Price is Zurich typical. My only complaint is the burger - it's really expensive for what it is.

The Walliser Kanne is perfectly located near the Main train station and provides good service and a reasonably priced swiss menu. The decor and ambiance is quite relaxing and done in the swiss chalet design.

Went to the Walliser Kanne for the first time tonight and it was the perfect start into the winter. So beautifully decorated you feel like you're in the Swiss Alps and the food was amazing. The only thing that wasn't typical Swiss: the waitress was so friendly and very attentive, which was so refreshing to see. Absolutely wonderful being there!

What to think about a Valais cold platter where one can count 4 pieces of dried meat, 3 pieces of bacon stripes, one gherkin, one tiny piece of cheese, that sells for 28.-? Also, Swiss fondue is an institution and really not hard to realise with basic techniques and good produce... well this so-called fondue arrived completely liquid, served with... More

For our one night in Zurich we wanted to get some fondue. We opted for somewhere near the train station because our hotel wasn't near any fondue places. It took nearly 10 minutes for our server to come say hello and ask for our drink order. She kept looking over at us and even though it wasn't busy, she didn't... More

We shared a wonderful cheese fondue and bottle of red wine. The service was fast and very friendly and the food was super. Perfect location, close to the station. Would recommend and will return again, in the future.
