Restaurant for Christmas dinner on 25th December

Does anyone know of a restaurant in Zurich serving a traditional Christmas dinner on 25th December? The Irish/English pubs are closed and the international hotels are offering turkey or goose to go. We just want the equivalent of a local pub Xmas dinner - not a formal 4 or 5 course sit-down meal as we have a young baby).

Thanks for any help!

You might want to ask a mod to change the title of your thread as you're either very late or very early for 25th September.

Can't help thinking that those who would normally serve a cheap meal will be at home enjoying social time with their families.

And watch out, the shops also usually close early on Christmas Eve, even if it's a normally working day...

Swiss custom is to have the main Christmas meal on Christmas Eve, not Christmas Day...

Hi Dore,

Long story short, we landed at the Dolder last Christmas with a (then) six month old baby. Unsurprisingly, it was not busy -- and the staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating with the little one. It was lovely.

Sorry that this isn't quite what you're looking for, but hope this helps.
