If you want to take your friends from abroad to a typical and chic guilds house restaurant, then you cannot do anything wrong with the Zunfthaus zur Waag. Everything will be perfect, from the welcome, the placing of the order, the food, as well as the overall atmosphere.

This was my second time eating at the Zunfthaus zur Waag, and my memories and high expectations were exceeded. The food is traditional high-end Swiss, perfectly cooked, and beautifully presented. The restaurant itself is immaculate, yet has retained its authentic character. What most impressed me was the staff. This is obviously a well-run ship, but whilst the service is professional...

We came here for dinner due to an article in a magazine which mentioned the quality of their fish dishes. First, I'd say this restaurant is located in one of the old traditional guilds' houses of Zürich. This fact in itself made me think it's probably a bit old fashion and traditional. The interior is definitely traditional but not old... More

This restaurant is situated in one of the most beautiful places of Zurich. The food was delicious, the staff very friendly, the atmosphere very elegant. I suggest you to try Gurkenkalscale, a cold soup, Wolfsbarsch (fish) and chocolate mousse.

With strictly business clientele, this is a perfect restaurant; the food, wine, atmosphere were all five star. It is overpriced as everything in Switzerland but people who choose to go there know what they are getting into!

Every time I come to Zurich, having a dinner there is a must. Although expensive, the quality that we get there fully justifies the price.

Every time we are in Zürich, one highlight is either lunch or dinner at "The Waag" - it has become a family tradition to pay the restaurant a visit and enjoy the original "Zürcher Geschnetzeltes". It goes without saying that this historic place offers the best of Swiss cuisine, exquisite wines and formidable service. Can hardly wait to visit again...!
