The fondue was perfect for the snowy evening. They provided bread and potatoes for dipping. The waitress was very helpful with ordering for the one person in our group who could not eat the fondue. The restaurant is decorated with lovely wood panels and quaint Swiss artifacts.

Thank ahling33

Very nice atmosphere with traditional Swiss cousin. It was first time we tried classical cheese fondue and we liked it.

The interior is very nice, like you are in the idillic village and not in the center of Zurich. They even have real oil lamps! Really a liked interrupt design more then Kitchen: herb fondue wasn't so tasty as it was in Alps, sausage was good but nothing else. I think it's more touristic place then real food enjoying experience.... More

This is the restaurant experience that we dreamed about. Everything about the Walliser Kanne was first rate. The traditional Swiss decor with accompanying music, the perfect soft lighting and the delicious food paired with a bottle of local wine. We had the raclette, as well as a nicely dressed mixed salad and the famous Zurich veal with rosti potatoes.... OMG....... More

We ordered a tomato fondue dish and beef stroganoff - both were very tasty. The decor in the restaurant is rustic and pleasant and our waitress was excellent.

Warm, cosey, authentic Swiss homely, and with the right level of tasty food smells. Nice menu of local staples, nothing too challenging. Really excellent service and good recommendations from the young lady waitressing & working part time from her college course. She will doubtless go on to achieve her dreams ... and deservedly so!

Tasty Swiss food (not only fondue or raclette) in a Swiss decor including cow bells with super friendly service. Really felt welcome. We were asked to move table just before desert to make place for a larger group and the serving lady insisted that we accepted the desert for free! So friendly. And with the ZurichCard we received a free... More

This is a good choice if one is looking for traditional Swiss comfort food in Central Zürich: fondue - raclette - schnitzel - etc. The décor is traditional rural. The food is good but not special. Note that one doesn't melt one's own raclette cheese - they bring you a dish of melted cheese from the kitchen. Eat quickly before... More
