View is great - even on a bad day

For a lunch I was led to this restaurant, beautifully located at the lake in the new Port area of Zug. The long building allows for plenty of seats at the window (in summer terrace), we must have been to late however with our booking, as we were at a small table inside. All other tables were taken... read more

The place to be at sundown or on a sunny afternoon. The view over the lake is simply amazing. Service and food are decent, can recommend their desserts.

I was apprehensive about this place as some reviews here were poor but we had great experience. Lovely steak and lobster with wonderful wine. Just about able to see the lake from our table although it was very dark but the deck looked very pretty covered in snow. The staff were prompt and very friendly. We were back st our... More

Nice location especially at dusk, lakeside terrace looking out over Zug lake. Amazing views.. Food is very good but over priced. Very understaffed and they really don't care if you complain about the wait. I would go there again but expect it to be a long wait if busy.

Nice place, decent food, totally overpriced and poor staffing. We waited 1.5 hours for our starter and given the staff took zero notice of that, my takeaway is this is the norm. Would I recommend? No way, save your time and money and go somewhere else...

I've been to this restaurant multiple times, not only for having a beer, but also for dinner. Food has always been good. However, what has driven me away from this restaurant is the service. Going for a drink in the evening and waiting 30 minutes for the drink has happened more than once to us. After complaining for waiting so... More

The location is certainly superb. The terrace overlooks the Zuger Lake and if you are lucky enough and you get a nice spot, you will sup with a view of the sunset just before you. The service is also friendly and everyone speaks English fluently. The food, however, was slightly disappointing. It was not bad at all, but not to... More
