One of my favorite meals is a good "Schnipo" (Schnitzel + Pommes / Schnitzel and chips) and I have tried many and been disappointed often. Not last night! We too came to this restaurant via a DeinDeal and all I can say, we will be back. The place is slightly off the beaten track though easily accessible with public transport... More

We discovered this restaurant via a Dein Deal voucher which was great value. The Nussli Salat was one of the best I've had in Zurich. The classic Schnitzel was full of flavour and crispy, accompanied by great chips. Despite the fact that the restaurant was packed (it's like dining in someone's front room, in a good way!) the service was... More

we caught the 14 tram from the interchange outside the main station, it took 15 minutes into the suburb of oerlikon and we strolled a block to this charming place - between the chequered tablecloths and one of the waiters in traditional pantaloons its almost a costumed restaurant - almost. The ladies working there were dressed normally. Dinner was yum... More

Excellent - a very nice experience. Staff wears traditional clothes and you'll find yourself in an simple restaurant like you'd find in Vienna. The food though is first rate. You choose your Wiener Schitzel or its various variants they created in three different sizes. Be aware though that the biggest choice is really huge - I could not finish it.... More

We enjoyed outstanding snitzel at the Snitzelhuus. Our teenagers don't always like to try new things, but they both loved the snitzel. The meals are pricey, but similar to pretty much all restaurants in Zurich. The restaurant is located on a quiet corner outside the city center. The great food, particularly a Swiss favorite, is worth the trip.

We visited Schnitzel Huus on a suggestion from our hotel and it was GREAT! Tons of variety in the menu (different meats, preparations, side dish choices), great drinks, service was impeccable (despite 1 young man working 6-8 tables himself) and a nice (free!) apple schnapp/spritzer afterward. Prices are normal for Zurich (30 CHF pp average). They have English menus and... More

Almost everything about this restaurant is good. It isn't cheap, but the food is really good. My only gripe is 12chf for a litre of still water...come on!
