A lovely atmosphere. The tables were nicely spaced so you didn't feel overlooked or overheard. A good menu which had some interesting and different dishes on it. The food was delicious and very nicely presented. You can have a half portion of many of the dishes. They have a large wine list but you could also buy a few of... More

Local friends invited me for a very good Swiss dinner. Lamb's lettuce, Cordon Bleu and the local speciality Zuger Kirschtorte for dessert were an excellent choice.

A fantastic meal in a wonderful setting with great service and a gorgeous wine list! The foie gras terrine as a starter was absolutely delicious and the veal special is definitely worth trying. They have a fantastic French Chablis along with a (I suspect) a whole load of other incredible wines. No.1 on Tripadvisor for a very good reason.

We had a great meal in this restaurant situated by the entrance of the historic town of Zug. There are two rooms, the smaller one is more attractive than the large room which is a little bit anonymous. The food is anything but! Great fresh fish in the centre of Switzerland makes this a real find. Turbot, lobster, scallops and... More

Went there with a group of 8 for Xmas dinner. Very attentive service, great food. Portions are sizeable, no one was actually able to have a dessert after the starter and main dish. I had the coconut cream soup with scallops and then the veal cordon blue, both excellent. My colleagues had similar opinion about the salads, the lobster and... More

I went to Aklin for several business lunches and enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant. I like the small room when you come in on the left as well as the larger room at the end of the hall to the right. Service is nice and friendly, food has always been a treat. The restaurant is next to the "Zytturm"... More
