After checking out the other beer halls, we chose this one, and it was the right choice. Wonderful ambience in the old arsenal, extremely attentive staff, quick service, tasty house beer, and excellent food in very large quantities. A great value for Zurich. Go there and you won't be disappointed.

Our first visit in Switzerland, we made a reservation at this restaurant as it was mentioned to be the one of most popular restaurant that one should not miss.

If you like drinks, meat, atmosphere and history then this is the place. Sometimes the air staff are rushed but so what. This is a great place to come on any weekend.

This used to be an armory, so it's very quaint with a lot of character. It is a big place but packed. You are also expected to share your table if there are empty seats.

This is one of best restaurants we visited in Zurich. Food is good and portions are big. The beer is excellent, best I had in our trip. Price was ok in local standards. Atmosphere is like german bierhaus, nice and relaxed, but a bit crowded. Service was friendly and fast.
