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

We had brunch with a large group and no better place than this to do so. To begin with this place is situated about 10 minutes by tram from downtown right by the lake (the name of the joint is quite self explanatory), great view. Right by the entrance there is a kids corner with a signified hostess, big plus... More

I attended a banquet here, with a reception ahead of the banquet. The Swiss wine was quite good and the view from e patio is divine. For dinner we were served featured a "duet" of veal and beef, and both were excellent. Dessert was a lovely Swiss chocolate mousse. I would recommend anyone to go here.

We did not have a reservation but they seated us lakeside with a spetacular view of the lake and Alps on a wonderful evening in Zurich. The special for the evening was All You Could Eat Sushi. It was very good but the creamy soup was outstanding.

We visited this restaurant last night having been recommended it by our hotel to celebrate my 50th Birthday. On arrival we had to hang around for five minutes until we were shown to our seats by the Maitre di. She has got to be one of the rudest, unpleasant restaurant staff member I have ever encountered. She was arrogant and... More

Wonderful location, great views - but alas the place is badly managed. Already the outside terrace is a mess and very filthy - nobody obviously cares. The self service area is below any standards, offers little choice and is overpriced. Service in the restaurant is unprofessional and has not heart. We shall not return and cannot recommend this restaurant. Hopefully... More
