I'm starting my visit from probably the most challenging time of year for this restaurant - a cold and wet December night. From the land side there's an exterior that looks a little grim, it's next to the tram line and a busy road. However look at the pictures in the summer - an outside eating area... read more

The special thing here is raw meat! If you like it... perfect. If not, go for the Burger. The staff is friendly and funny. The view over the lake is perfect.

Great view but too expensive... Poor service, low quality of food. They did not even care about our comment about the food that we left in our plates. Apparently they don't need any feedback or they simply do not care about clients' feelings.

This place is a must see and eat. In summer, there is a fantastic outside place to eat just next to the lake... the food is great. In winter, the place very loungy decorated and you can eat all kind of fondue. The staff is very friendly. The trouble is that you may not want to leave....

I have been to the restaurant three times in the last few months and enjoyed the food on every occasion. Normally open to the elements in the summer the owners have cleverly enclosed the outdoor area to make a really snug and warm restaurant with wood burning stoves and rugs for the winter season. Menu is simple; fondue, carnivore or... More

Go for a drink or a tasty salad. This is a fun restaurant on the lake. Its really great in the summer when the weather is nice but you might want to call a head for a reservation because seating is limited. Personally I think they have one of the more fun menus in town, but for major meat lovers... More

I had a steak tartare which was very well served and extremely good. I also liked the atmosphere of this restaurant - chilled and friendly staff. The only downside is the lack of parking options around especially during busy evening. Prefer to take the tram (and for example park at la Place Pury) or alternatively you can park opposite in...

The terrasse is great. You are seated at the very lake front and on the lake. A nice young team. Prices are quite high on Sunday : CHF 35.-- for a tiny, but excellent, lettuce salad and a portion of roast beef.

The food is not good and the service is appauling. If they have a lot of people you fell as if they want to kick you out before you finished eating. Very dissapointed, will never go back.
