Dishing up Swiss staples and craft beer on tap inside a cozy, 15th-century building, Zeughauskeller is one of the most visited Swiss restaurants you cannot ignore when in Zurich.

Some say it’s a house full of tourists and the food is questionable. But to me, if you’re looking for an introduction to Swiss cuisine in an inviting environment, this is the place.

From the schnitzel and cordon blue to pork knuckles and artisan beers, everything is on point. It’s not the best Swiss restaurant you need for a romantic date night but it surely fits the bill for an empty stomach and a hungry soul aspiring to explore.

The Dining Space

The interior boasts quite an armory with artillery. You’ll be sitting across the crossbows and other weapons displayed on the walls. The low ornate ceiling interior promotes a cozy feeling with expansive windows looking out to the streets.

The Menu

Zeughauskeller prepares 11 languages so you will not have a hard time ordering your favorite dishes. We got some Swiss-German-crossed staples such as the schnitzel and pork knuckles along with several varieties of sausage and a side dish of potatoes and hashbrowns. The onion sauce was finger-licking good with its dark, rich, caramelized batter delighting your palate.

If you’re a hardcore German beer fanatic, this may not be the best place that gets you wow’ed. However, the selection and flavors are nice. You can get them coming in huge glasses from 1 to 4 liters at a reasonable price for such a place in Switzerland.
