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

We booked Lake Side for a business lunch for 12 staff members, and - looking at the summer sun - we were looking forward to the treat. After some negotiation, we were able to get a menu rather than having to order one standard meal for everyone, but it was still more of a standard Swiss bill of stuff than... More

Had a fantastic meal here at a table overlooking the lake. Unfortunately, due to the high winds we had to sit indoors as the terrace was closed. The food and wine was excellent and I can recommend the perch fillets. The waiters were attentive and kept wine glasses topped up.

Nice outside seating area, inside looks very basic and like a big garage with chairs inside. Forgetting about that and more of my experience on the terrace area where 99% of people would be sitting on a sunny day. 20mins for a starter and then after 2hours of sitting there on my girlfriends birthday waiting for our main coarses to...

Went there as the Gala Dinner for the conference. A great location with a wonderful view of Lake Zurich. Foods are good. I had veal as the main entree and it's tasty. Service is also nice although they are pretty busy with over three hundred people.

The view is just breath-taking, and the food is nice although really pricey. Unfortunately the experience was somewhat spoiled with an unfriendly service, and probably the most "pushy" I've had in a long time. When taking our order (for 3 of us) the maitre d asked us 5 times if we were taking appetizers. She was obviously not pleased that... More

We ate here on a company outing and it is certainly a great atmosphere offering an urban classy setting. Speaking of setting try to time it with the setting sun which will make the moment very memorable. Food is wonderful as well as the service. Zurich is a pricey but this is similar to a fancy place in NYC, Tokyo,... More

We went there to enjoy some good sunday brunch and we were not disappointed! The buffet was huge, it had everything one would want to have for brunch. The variety and the quality of the food was great, the staff was very friendly. Unfortunately, two downsides were the rather large amount of small children (noise-level) and the price. However, we...
