see my previous post ... But, yes, they exist and are legal - even, or also in Zurich, of course. And there is nothing to say against them!
Instead of spending ages typing prose to prove your lack of a sense of humour, or any concept of perspective, why not name the restaurants and help the OP.

It is considered poor form on EF to write a message in one of the languages of Switzerland without a translation into English. It is the English Forum, after all.

Would you be so kind, therefore, as to provide a translation for our friends in the Welschland and Ticino?

Thank you.

Well, gents and ladies, I must admit, I am thoroughly disappointed by your extreme bad integration status - not because of the lacking knowledge about BYOB, but because of your bad German (dis)abilities... obviously!

Well, but since you are the ruthless expats who get what they expect, how outrages it ever might be , let me try, but also let me say that this inevitable bad English translation will never do justice to the Geman original text, of course ... because it says so many things between the lines/words....


"Komm vom Deinem hohen Ross runter"

lit.
: Get down from your high horse(German(?) saying for somebody with a too high haughtiness/pride)


"
und tu Dir den wirklichen Gefallen einen echten schweizerischen Charakter anzugedeihen:"

possibily: and allow to yourself a real favour in granting yourself a authentic Swiss character trait:


"Bescheidenheit und Rücksichtsnahme (als das Gegenteil arroganter Hochnäsigkeit)."

possibily:
Modesty and self-effacement (in the sense of: the contrary of arrogant snootiness)

Re: BYOB - Zürich

No need to be patronising. I understood perfectly well what you wrote.

That isn't, however, the point. In this community you abide by this community's rules, which means that you do not discrimate against those of our members who might be fluent speakers of French or Italian but who don't understand German.

It's simple good manners.

Re: BYOB - Zürich

Just to add a comment about the other side of the BYOB coin (when the restaurant doesn't have an alcohol license):

In U.S., this is not out of place at some of the more high-end restaurants in San Francisco and New York (for example), where a customer might want to bring their favorite from their own personal wine cellar. As mentioned by other posters, a corkage fee is charged. I've been to dinner on several occasions, in both places, where I've seen this.

Can I suggest that you get down off your own high horse and start learning to write English before joining an English-speaking forum?

The way, we Swiss increasingly often start to learn to disgustingly percieve an astonishingly large part of the (anglo-saxon) expats in Switzerland!
This is just one example of many - how you feel you can criticise expats' German skills with English like that I do not know.

Language
The language of the forum is English. Non-English text should be accompanied by an English translation. Some leeway is given, for example when quoting a specific section of law, but ideally an English summary would be helpful. Posts not in the English language may be deleted without warning.

Re: BYOB - Zürich

Very common in Australia. They charge you a small caulk removal charge and you can actually get insulated, bottle-shaped carriers to keep your white wine chilled on the way to the restaurant.

And what made you want to try to answer a question (badly) already answered from 3 years ago?

Re: BYOB - Zürich

The Mövenpick restaurant in Zurich will charge you 20CHF per BYOB bottle.
