I was invited here by friends for my birthday and enjoyed a very nice cordon bleu, a speciality of the house, with great patatoes as side order. Also the service was nice. Definitely plan to return again.

Food, coffee, cakes - the Volkshaus is an all time classic in Zürich. Staff is friendly and the interior is beautiful. If you wanna eat swiss cuisine with a modern touch you've got to go there. Simply great food!

I have been there several times. The restaurant offers a nice service in a very nice decor. Nice for afternoon coffee / tea with a piece of cake you can choose from the display. Good cocktail bar in the evening. Food: regular Swiss German menu.
