www.eat.ch - restaurant delivery service

I just stumbled across a website that lets you type in your zip code and then finds restaurants that will deliver to you, here in Switzerland. There's even an option for English.

http://www.eat.ch/en/index.php

You can view menus and place orders directly from there.

I'm sure some of you know about it already, but for those who don't, I thought I'd share.

Hopefully it's a good service. I haven't tried it yet but probably will soon, especially in this cold! Sometimes the fridge is low and I just don't feel like running to the market.

Wow — I'm in a small town on the Vierwaldstättrsee, and at 20:45 on a Sunday evening, there are four establishments apparently offering home delivery.

LOL. Yeah, I once noticed a Dominos near the Zurich University Hospital. I kept meaning to go, but then the next time I went past it on the bus, it looked closed.

That website is really making me wish I still live in downtown Zurich though, because I can't find any Indian or Thai restaurants that will deliver to where we are now (Greifensee).

Re: www.eat.ch - restaurant delivery service

eat.ch is good, but it's only a kind of "aggregator". The food comes from the resturants in question. I haven't had any problems, and I've ordered through them a couple of dozen times or more.

Run that by me again? When you see the big list of restaurants on the eat.ch website, and choose one.....the food actually comes from the restaurant and NOT from the eat.ch guys themselves?

Yeah it's a pity really, cause I hear the web developers at eat.ch are dab hands in the kitchen...

Yeah, I figured they were just acting as the messenger.

Does anyone know if they charge a fee if you place the order through their site? (Again, I haven't yet tried it myself but probably will soon.)

Not sure about eat.ch but mosi.ch who offer a similar service charge you a mark up on the restaurant price and a delivery fee.

Only in Switzerland could it be more expensive to order take-away than to eat in the restaurant itself!

I've ordered from them once, and there didn't appear to be a fee from eat.ch--there was a delivery fee from the pizza place, but you'd have to pay that whether you called them directly or used the website.

Re: www.eat.ch - restaurant delivery service

I find eat.ch really good. They also have lots of promotions where you pay less when ordering by card. Last weekend was -20%. The main difference to food delivery in other countries is that it can take the up to 1 hour (sometimes even more) to bring your food. Shortest is 20 minutes.

For Zürich it has a big range of different restaurants. The ratings on the side are credible.
