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

Good location and friendly service. Food quality standard is good but prices are steep for what is offered. Have been twice now but still not memorable.

The Hafenrestaurant truly is a well-hidden pearl just outside of the immediate centre of Zug and a beautiful 10min walk along the lake from the old town. The view of the lake and the mountains is fantastic and the food (some of the fish comes straight from the lake) is delicious. It is a bit pricey, but surely worth a... More

Great lake front terrace next to the harbour with tables and lounge chairs. Restaurant inside. Food is good but the location makes it perfect!

We love going to this place, particularly if it's a nice day/evening and you can sit on the terrace which is directly above water with beautiful views of the town, the harbor, the lake, the hill (Zugerberg) and the distant mountains. The food is good, not great, compared to the price - I guess you pay for the view.

Great duck's eye view of zugersee and Rigi - but lacked a warm welcome and smile as usually expected from host's in this fine part of the world. Also a bit mean with the bread sticks and busicits used to try and placate the pre- teens in our small group.

wonderful terrace to be on a sunny day. else everything was quite average. food was okay. service was okay, but not special. it's quite a family place, meaning lots of kids running round on weekends.
