Love it.....

I have been here 4 times recently for breakfast and I love it. The food has always been nice (but how wrong can you go with scrambled eggs) they do really nice coffee and the views are to die for. In the nice weather it's one of the nicest places in/around zug for breakfast. I haven't been in... read more

We enjoyed lovely seafood dishes on their terrace and the view was fantastic. The staff were efficient. Parking is easy, just be early, as it is a popular spot in Zug. We are looking forward to go back again.

I had heard that this restaurant (and others within the same group) has a policy for ensuring that staff costs are (aggressively) managed and while I cannot comment on this, it was apparent that Swiss staff are obvious only in their absence. That being said, wait staff were friendly and pretty efficient unlike the greeting from front-of-house that was both... 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

For these reasons, the price is... More

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 another Swiss lake. Rather tacky actually, and... More

My first review ever. Food is awful as well as service . Manager doesn't have any manners . He was rude and even aggressive. Never seen something like this in my life!!!

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.
