I wouldn't have picked Zunfthaus zur Waag myself but I got a voucher from work for Christmas so we decided to go while our daughter was on ski camp. The ambience of the old building was lovely and the small dining room had an intimate atmosphere. The food was delicious and my husband's steak as soft as butter. I had... More

The square used to be an open air parking place; it was changed recently so that there are no cars or traffic. During summer time, the restaurant may offer the possibility to be seated outside at the... More

Besides, there are the nearby Fraumünster church, lots of fancy boutiques and the Limmat, which attract all those who love the old part of the city.

This was my second time eating at the Zunfthaus zur Waag, and my memories and high expectations were exceeded. The food is traditional high-end Swiss, perfectly cooked, and beautifully presented. The restaurant itself is immaculate, yet has retained its authentic character. What most impressed me was the staff. This is obviously a well-run ship, but whilst the service is professional...
