Lovely evening at a beautiful place

Nice and young staff, good food and wonderful place near the lake. Try the local Züri Gschnetzlets, really tasty.

View is of course astonishing as it is directly on the lake. Food is really nice although a bit pricey, my fish was really well prepared and the sushis we ordered were fantastic. Fresh and tasty. This is really a pitty that the service is so slow. Had to wait for so long for each and every plate, even the... More

You pay for the view as the food here is well overpriced as most other reviewers have pointed out. The atmosphere in the summer is wonderful and they serve brunch buffet on Sunday.

Spent the day at a Symposium in the complex, with excellent lunch buffet and evening cocktail reception. Very warm, so we decided not to return to the sweltering City and booked a table. Very good food. Very competent and friendly service. And a good wine list. 5 Very happy bunnies

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant for lunch off the back of a recommendation from a friend who lives in Zurich. The food was absolutely delicious - FANTASTIC seafood! But what made the experience was the service - they could not do enough for us and were so pleasant. The views are absolutely exquisite - we were lucky enough... More

My SO invited me to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. A reservation for a table outside was made but we were given the worst table, in an isolated corner surrounded bushes, the table was soon covered with plant dirt, insects annoyed us, and the lake view was terrible, obstructed by the bushes. It was really the worst table they... More

It is nicely decorated and would be so nice to see the lake on a good day. Unfortunately it was raining the day we went there. The staff was friendly and the service was fast. The good was quite good although I would not recommend the sushi on monday, there wasn't much variety at the open buffet and they did... More

I had lunch here in a sunny and warm day at a table by the lake. Great view and ambience. I had a a tomato muzzarela salada and a spicy steak tartar that were delicious. The tartar was one of the best I had in town. Good wine list and service is perfect.

If you like a nice sushi in a nice location then you should try this restaurant. It has a beautiful terrace overlooking the lake and me personally i do enjoy always the big selection of sushi.

From the moment we entered the restaurant we felt something wrong as the employee spoke to us in wired irrespectful tone but we thought that we may be not understanding them well. As we are waiting for the table we were speaking in our language then old blond employee women turned around to us and said are you taking about... More
