Where to take Guests for a "Swiss" dining experience?

Hi Guys,

I have an ex colleague and her partner visiting for three days, starting next Monday. They're both passionate about food, very well travelled, and rather would prefer a fun, interactive experience as opposed to anything too "fine dining" and fussy.

I want to take her somewhere interesting for dinner. If it was winter, I'd have no hesitation taking them for the Fondue experience, but its a bit heavy for this weather.

The plan so far; is one day, I'm taking them for a walk around Zurich city, and, past Vordere Sternen Grill for a bratwurst at lunchtime; a cold chocolate at Truffe in the old city. Not sure where to finish for dinner.

Which is where you come in. I'd love suggestions!

Thanks!

Have they tried to dine in the dark?
That could be an interesting experience...

I agree with Zeughauskeller, very touristic and a decent place.

Re: Where to take Guests for a "Swiss" dining experience?

Thanks to everyone who reccommended Zeughauskeller- we ended up going there for dinner last night. Number 42 was ordered, as was Weinerschnitzel. Both my guests throughly enjoyed their food, the beer and the ambience of the place.

As a vegetarian, I felt a bit out of place in what felt like a temple to all things Carnivorous. Still, it was perfect for what I was looking for- so thanks again!

Glad it was a good experience all in all Inshan.

I'm not a vegetarian and can understand the options must be very limited. What did you order? What was available for you?

There are a few pastas and salads. I had a Caprese Salad- wasn't terribly hungry, and the serve was so enormous, that I didn't finish it

Re: Where to take Guests for a "Swiss" dining experience?

Is Zeughauskeller child friendly at lunchtimes? Checked the website but there was no suggestion of children's portions. They are both quite fussy but would be more than happy with grilled chicken, sausage, schnitzel etc

edit: Found the children's menu in the German part of the website (should have checked there first)
