We went there with a friend from abroad who wished to taste a typical meal of the Zurich region. We remembered this Restaurant with the great painted hall as a place serving authentic and really delicious dishes. At first felt proud to take our friend to this place. But then we were really disappointed by what was served now: Flabby... More

The Zum Kropf looks like a throwback to the Belle Epoque period or older in Zurich. While the setting is mesmerizing, the food is just as great. My Bratwurst with rosti was top-notch and another's veal dish was equally enjoyed. There are three dining areas on the ground floor and try for the middle one for a true taste of... More

I ate here with my old friends who live here in Zürich. One of them reserved for us one table at dinner. Staffs and Table Service was very kind and food delicious. "Geschnetzeltes Kalbfleisch Zürichart mit Rahmsoße und Rösti" for me and "Siedfleischteller", traditional boiled beef, for my friends. Bread on the Table was the Best that I ever ate.... More

The restaurant's historic decor of wooden paneling, marble columns, ceiling murals and stained glass windows create a wonderful fine dining atmosphere. The menu offers a wide variety of Swiss Fayre. A must visit in Zurich!

For those who prefer a more tranquil and elegant alternative to the busy Zeughauskeller, zum Kropf serves delicious local dishes in a lovely setting. Meal prices are fairly reasonable prices by Zurich standards. We ordered the Geschnetzeltes Kalbfleisch Zurcherart with Roesti (Veal cooked in traditional way with creamy mushroom sauce). Our meal was delicious. The portions were abundant. The restaurant... More

Good service (and we were a big group), food excellent, wine good. A very typically "Swiss" menu, if that is what you are looking for.

A typical Zürich Restaurant! It's a must while staying in town. Book a table in the front part of the Restaurant. In the Summer they have a very nice terrace. I always eat the calfs liver with Rösti!

Visited for dinner. Didn't have a reservation but was able to be seated. Would suggest booking ahead. Food was good, not amazing. Service was good. Ambiance was amazing. Worth the visit to see. Fairly priced.
