Wine list

As an accompaniment, we serve small but fine cold dishes:

  • Our Weinschenke platters:
  • Exquisite regional dried speciality meats
  • A variety of hard and soft cheeses depending on market availability
  • Mixed platters – a small selection of both meats and cheeses
  • Our beef steak tartare, famous throughout Zurich, from mild to devilishly hot
  • And to round things off, try one of our deserts, such as our lukewarm chocolate cake: a special treat to go with the last sip of red wine!

Allow yourself to be inspired by our menu.

A la carte menu

Looking for an exceptional place for your event?

The Weinschenke is ideal for a cosy get-together in a relaxed atmosphere. Our platters, an apéro riche or Gschwellti (boiled, unpeeled potatoes) with 14 types of cheese accompanied by our selected wines guarantee a wonderful evening!

Next winter too, you can book our mulled wine apéro on the roof terrace for your event. Lit up for Christmas and decorated with ice sculptures
– a very special experience right in the heart of the old town!
