The food here is relatively simple, but delicious! People go for the Schnitzel, and that is what you will see served all around you. It is absolutely top notch! Thin, crispy, tasty. You can see from the pictures it's big. There's a small size available too. The chips are delicious, crispy and well seasoned. You also get some tasty vegetables... More

We went to Brunnentor on a double date last Saturday and had a great dinner. As a hotelier I respect restaurants that not only get it right, but do so consistently. It's easy for Michelin starred restaurants to do it with their ridiculously exorbitant prices and their large kitchen brigades, it's much tougher to achieve this level when in a... More

We had dinner there again last week and it was yet again a wonderful meal. The food here is consistent in quality and is very good. Each time we dine here, it tastes exactly the same, which is great because we like what they produce. Normally I order a large pork schnitzel, but this time round I went for the... More

We had dinner there last night and it was excellent again. It's one of the few places you can go to in this country where the food is consistent in quality. Each time we go, it tastes exactly the same, which is great because we like what they offer. We ordered a large pork schintzel with vegetables only and a... More

I went by last night and had another wonderful meal. Service was good and the schnitzel (large pork) was excellent as always. I also tried the veal schnitzel from my partner and it was delicious too. To be honest, the meat is battered so thin, there isn't much difference between the veal and the pork, both taste mild. We also... More

I am here on a trip for my company and read the review in here, about the food so I went there and was not disappointed. They are not that good at English, but my German is not s bad, so we managed to get the order in. Very good food and the schnitzel is massive. I can clearly recommend... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and am delighted that TA finally listened to my request to have it added to their list of restaurants. In my opinion, it is the best schnitzel restaurant in Zürich and also the most authentic tarte flambée. It's located in Uster, which is only 11 minutes direct train (S5/15) from Stadelhofen and...

I have been to the Brunnentor many times and have become a proud regular. It is without a doubt the best schnitzel in Zürich. They take a lot of pride in their food and service, and are known amongst the locals to provide a consitently top quality product. I mean it. No one knows about this place because it is... More
