Great setting - good food

Had dinner with two friends on Friday evening. The table was perfectly situated on the deck facing the lake. It was a clear and mild evening and the views were fantastic. Pity about the fake steam/smoke that came from underneath. I guess someone thought it cool to produce "smoke on the water" in... read more

Location and the view are stunning. If you don´t care about the quality of service you could maybe still enjoy it. For me the staff that is cold, inflexible and arrogant spoils the experience. They never smile, nor welcome you, nor ask if you are satisfied - the only exception was a girl at the entrance. Food is ok but... More

Especially great in the Summer. A really good menu including traditional Swiss dishes. Fish is also good. The staff are friendly, competent and polite. Even if you do not wish to eat, just having a drink on the terrace is lovely. I can certainly recommend it.

Lovely place to eat whether inside or out. We visited a few years ago and were put off by the unfriendly staff and slow service, however we decided to give it another try and it's vastly improved. Food is good for CH.

The place is definitely worth a visit, the view is great, the atmosphere is fantastic. And the food is also very good. Without the food, just sitting on the terse and sipping a drink is also a great idea. But nothing is perfect - the sevice is slow and not really paying attention.

I had with my son in march diner at this well known place in Zug, the terrasse is great and the view of "Riggi" amazing. The problem is the service rather rude young girl stressed served us food which was ok but nothing more. The suisse quality missed, if you pay 100 chf for "wok" and a "tatare" with terrible... More

We arrived jet lagged off the train in Zug and walked along the lake to the Hafenrestaurant (Harbor restaurant) and enjoyed a $5 coffee each sitting in the sun in March. The apricot tart had a great bite to it.

From the moment you walk in the atmosphere is very pleasant, whether this is in the morning for a cup of coffee with friends, or in the evening for a relaxed meal out with your spouse. We had oysters as a starter which were beautiful. Vegetarian tartar and meat tartar were okay. Our waitress very attentive. Will certainly visit again,... More
