The Zeughauskeller is one of the well-known restaurants in Zurich and it is highly recommendable to book a table well in advance. Typical Swiss as well as Zurich foods are offered and throw you back to centuries ago thanks to the special setting

We had made reservations on line for 7:30 pm. We arrived and it felt as if we did not have any higher priority than those walking in from the street. Once seated, the service was extremely prompt and helpful. The salad, I believe of lambs ear lettuce and egg with a creamy French dressing, was outstanding. 2 of us split... More

Very good and friendly staff. Quick service even the place was full. The atmosphere was fantastic. Food was good, We had no reservation so we could only stay an hour (until the people who had reserved arrived:( We will come back next time in Zurich.

This is a fun place to enjoy local culture, but be prepared to wait and to be in a bustling environment. The local beer is fresh and delicious! Meals are very authentic and they even have offerings for dieters! Fun for a group!

The food is always great here, heavy and fatty but great! But the staff is really unfriendly ... Not client focussed they are just doing their job not more. The location is cool and the prices are good for Zurich because the portions are really big.

Going to Zeughauskeller, is going to a very typical spot, and all the delicious swiss typical dishes; from affordable ones to more expensive. Menus are in popular languages; decoration is so good. You can find all information online; ideal for family, groups, couples.

A lovely vibe, quick service. Ensure you make a reservation. The mayor's sword is quite novel. The latest beer is very large indeed! Nearly the size of two pints. The food has never let us down.

I honestly don't know where to begin with how terrible this place is. We visited on a Saturday evening after reading other reviews but I do not know where their praise comes from. After a considerable delay for a table as we were told we didn't need to book on the phone after calling, the staff were disorganised and looked... More
