Restaurant with portions for dog near Zurich?

I have my dogs birthday today and was googling for a restaurant we could go to after work that would also serve some food for the dog, but could not find any. Does anyone know if that kind of restaurant exists in Zurich or nearby? Or any restaurant that would possibly be open to coming up with something off the menu?

Thanks for any info.

Re: Restaurant with portions for dog near Zurich?

what kind of food does your dog prefer? Asian, Italian, traditional Swiss cuisine?

A restaurant meal for a dog... hilarious.

Maybe a nice Mutt-on curry?

Well, it would not need to be anything fancy, his extremely omnivorous and loves all kinds of restaurants and foods. I do know some places in other countries but guess this does not happen in Switzerland.

Just when you think you can no longer be surprised by anything anybody says on this forum, something else comes in right out of the leftfield.

Re: Restaurant with portions for dog near Zurich?

How would the dog eat it's dinner, do you normally take a dog-plate? It sits
at the table, like on chair?


Maybe MacDonalds would be safest option, buy it a big mac and fries, maybe a diet coke? Some restaurants might be sensitive to throwing their nicely prepared dishes into a dog bowl

Edit : Happy meal might be better, includes a toy

Is there a McDogalds in Zürich?

There is a nice cafe on Muttenz bahnhof, but probably too far from Zurich.
They serve their food in PET dishes.

Sorry to disappoint, but I'm listening for the trip trap, trip trap along with everyone else on this thread.

Not every canine query is worthy of a wall of text.

Heffalump does.

And half an hour later clears the room.

Not a recommended canine food group.

Re: Restaurant with portions for dog near Zurich?

So we couldn't find a place with menu for dogs but in case someone else finds this topic actually looking for the info I was, I can recommend Fork & Bottle next to Allmend park. They were happy to prepare a small portion of unflavored meat for my dog for his birthday and also have a lovely terrace for these sunny days.

You could have gone here, providing your dog is green, that is.
