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

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.
