We are locals. We went here recently for a lunch on Friday, seeing that their restaurant sign was boasting Swiss traditional 100 yrs of history (we did not even realise that this place existed). Don't be fooled! Food is overpriced and nothing special, and nothing really Swiss about this place either. We ordered a traditional cheese salad, one of the... More

This tiny and really nice "countryside" restaurant is located in the very centre of Zürich and seems to have remained exactly how this city used to be in the 1950s. The two owners, one of Latin and one of German descent, serve kindly and very professionally at the very few tables (reservation is recommended). The interior is a comfortable wooden... More

Little traditional restaurant with half a dozen tables if that and very basic but comfortable. The host was friendly and we were able to communicate with some English and universal gestures. Menu very basic and few options. We both had wine, red and white which was good. Our main was a traditional meatloaf with potato salad accompanied with bread and... More

We visit the Weisse Rose, every time we visit Zurich. The best time to go there is probably in the middle of the afternoon, between Lunch and Dinner - we ordered the lovely "Weisswurst" and Bread with a Bottle of Red Wine. Jan wasn't there this time, but the other 2 staff were very friendly and helpful. We sat for... More

My partner and I were spending the last night of our holiday exploring downtown Zürich, and we're looking for someplace to dine. Many of the restaurants we tried were quite full, and with no reservations, we were turned away. We chanced upon Weisse Rose, and the proprietor welcomed us in. Through gestures and my French, we were able to communicate... More

Zurich is full of Schicky Schmicky Restaurants, often of outstanding quality but also very pricey. If you feel like having a glass of wine and a simple but honest meal, a great relaxed athmosphere and locals that actually don't mind having a chat with visitors, then Jan's Weisse Rose is an institution not to be missed. It is a tiny... More

This place is absolutely tiny, probably only 6 tables. We had wanted to have a drink here a number of times but each time we went by, it was completely full. Finally one cold winter day, we had some luck, got a table and had a few glasses of wine. The atmosphere is nice and cosy, we enjoyed ourselves. The... More
