Fodor's Review

The most ambitious of the city's many Zunfthaus dining places, this fine restaurant is also the most spectacular, combining a wooden barrel-vaulted ceiling and 30-foot beams. Slick modern improvements—including a glassed-in elevator—manage to blend intelligently with the ancient decor and old-world chandeliers. Innovative entrées might include lobster-coconut bisque with dried prawns and mangos, or sautéed goose liver on balsamico grapes. The river views are especially impressive at night; ask for a window table.

Not worth it

While the room is amazing the food is just OK, especially for the price. We dined here Sept. 2008.
