Lovely view / Average food

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... read more

Such a wonderful location to spend a afternoon in the sun. Ideal seating on wooden terrace. Intriguing cooling system ensures flounders stay cool. The place has a nice lunch concept to ensure soup, salad and main course go through quick, so we can be efficient working on time again. It gets troublesome when one takes his/her time to enjoy.

A very positive point is that this restaurant is opened on Sunday... The view is great, the place is very nice. However, for 2 people, without wine, with only 2 courses (entrance+main dish) , the bill was very expensive.

Very good location on the lake, nice staff, clean and polite, also if we waited a long for drinking. Drinks (Spritz) are nothing special. Food of average quality but not outstanding, especially for the price.

I like the new decoration this spot is just great. Everytime i go there i pray that the Food has got better but disappointed again and again. And of course you would feel the high price even more if you dont like the food. At least the service is good.

Dear Netrex Many thanks for your posting. We are pleased, if you like our location. It's a pity you want to report your complaint only on TripAdvisor, so we have no chance to respond. And it brings for both of us nothing. Best regards 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 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 the weekends... More

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

Dear Dorota T For the first time many thanks for your time that you have applied to write this entry.

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
