Recommend me: A restaurant near Zürich Airport

I am driving the family to Zurich airport, and would like to stop somewhere nearby to get some dinner before continuing to the airport.

Can anyone recommend a restaurant that is:
- not too far from the airport
- family friendly
- budget friendly
- parking
- opens early (5pm, or close to)

Much appreciated!

Re: Recommend me: A restaurant near Zürich Airport

Why not eat at the airport food court?

There is also an area after going through customs for travellers only.

very good, excellent Swiss grub, beautiful area. Airport is over the hill via country roads, 10-15 minutes. All within what you require. I go for the Bauernwurst with Rösti.

Re: Recommend me: A restaurant near Zürich Airport

I had initially planned to eat at the airport, but we are intentionally leaving Basel early, to avoid the peak hour traffic, so we'll be in Zürich 3-4 hours before the flight.

I'd rather not spend that amount of time hanging around the airport, paying for parking, when there might be a nice restaurant nearby.

About five minutes by car from the airport is the Glattzentrum - a big mall. You can easily spend some hours there and the restaurants on the top floor have just been renovated this year.

Restaurants are mostly local chains like http://www.yoojis.ch/ (Sushi) but that's not necessarily a bad thing, especially for the budget.

I was going to then recommend http://www.runway34.ch/cms/ but I see it only opens at 18:00. It is at the end of one of the runways. Really great as it has a kids spielplatz outside and you can watch the planes take off overhead.

I presume that if you are driving, you will be planning to park the car at the airport when you are away. That being the case, adding a couple of hours to parking is going to be a negligable (relatively) increase in cost. If it really is an issue, why not take the train?

I would also recommend Glatt then. The parking is free and there is also a really large kinderparadies.

You could also try DimSum restaurant in Movenpick, near Zurich Airport. Asian cuisine with good ambience, family friendly, bit pricey though!

Re: Recommend me: A restaurant near Zürich Airport

I did the trip last week (the same day I made my first post)

Glatt was great. Mrs Siberian was a little stressed about bringing 3 kids on the flight herself, then we found out the flight was delayed by an hour, therefore making her estimated arrival time at home around 1am (reminding you again, this is with 3 young kids!!)

So we parked @ Glatt, dropped the two older ones at the play centre, and went for a relaxing glass of wine and chilled out. It took lot of the stress away.

Afterwards we ate some dinner at the Migros, just being a bit easier for the kids. The other restaurants looks really good.

English forum got a bit of praising from us that evening!

All worked out great, they went off happy, I went home to an empty house and have been bored ever since.
