South African and Aussie help.

Have two friends coming over for a visit. One from Cape town and the other from Sydney. They would be staying here for a bit. Once they are done with all the Swiss stuff, where should I take them for a more South African or Aussie dinner, bar, expat hangout experience.

Thanks.

btw this is for Zurich stadt.

Sadly, the cost of meat here prevents any realistic chance of you taking either of them to a South African or Australian dining experience..... and to be honest with you, they are probably here for the Swiss experience anyway.

Depending on their age (I assume younger people), I think the best place to take them for a familar Australian setting would be the "Oliver Twist" in Niederdorf...... it's run by an Aussie, and so are a few of the staff.

Alternatively, and weather permiting, I'm sure both would enjoy an outdoor beer at "El Lokal", or a get a feed across the road at "Reithalle Biergarten".


For something a little more expensive and fun, I'd also recommend a boat ride down to Rappiswil and find one of the restaurants close to the port.
Upstairs (I think over the 'falcon' something pub) is a place that does a good steak on a "hot stone"....... fork out on a first class ticket for the trip down and have a few beers, a good steak, then a quick train ride back into Zurich.

I'm sure that "Budget" will be the most limiting factor here, so for dinner, just do whatever you all agree on...... except fondue...... that's disgusting in summer.

DO NOT go to the 'Outback' at Stadelhoffen.... the Aussie will punch you for sure.
(It's the most un-Australian place I've ever seen and have seriously considered suing for misrepresentation and defamation of character - we do not drink Fosters)
