The legendary Kronenhalle's former patrons include big names such as Picasso, Chagall and Miró (whose original paintings still adorn the walls today — chances are, you may be dining within arm's reach from precious artwork). Kronenhalle is a world-renowned establishment that's been around for nearly a century, consistently delivering superb quality Swiss/French cuisine and above par service.


The traditional Zürich cuisine is very rich and usually includes plenty of meat. The city’s trademark dish is the Züri Gschnetzlets — diced veal in a creamy mushroom sauce served with Rösti. There are plenty of very good quality restaurants on every corner throughout the city. The area around Bahnhofstrasse generally provides the best atmosphere in the afternoon, while Niederdorf is the place to be for an evening meal.
