Great skylounge, even better service

We discovered the rooftop open air terrace at Hotel Eden au Lac Beautiful view over Zuricher See and a stunning sunset. The service by the waiter was excellent, friendly and to the point. We felt really welcome. Drink are reasonably priced.

I ended up in front of the Eden au Lac, while trying to find a pedestrian crossing to reach the lakeside over a murderous highway to go to a restaurant for lunch. Instead the old fashioned facade and the impeccably dressed staff lured me into the diningroom. I found myself alone with my compagnion in the large empty dining area... More

Old world charm, lovely location and outstanding staff - very helpful and very courteous. Went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and yet polite and discreet. Classic hotel and certainly have excellent service standards difficult to find in Europe in this day and age.

Nice view, food was ok, but nothing really special. Would be good to make some changes... As this spot is really nice Service was fine, unfortunately far away from 5* But if you don't expect much, you have enough time and you just want to have simple food and enjoy amazing Zürisee view, this place is for you!

Positives - food was acceptable and had a varied selection - they were mindful of our young children when it came to charging for their part Negatives - poor service - in a so called 5 star facility, one should not have to pour their own water, ask for our drink order to be taken or wait too long for...

We tried to return (after more than a decade) to this hotel for their ''hors d'oeuvre chauds' - upon enquiry at the reception nobody knew about this. We then inspected the restaurant (in the afternoon) and were shocked to see how what was once an elegant, classic dining room with crystal chandeliers had now become an ugly breakfast area with...

Located in the noble Eden at Lac Five Star hotel in Zurich the roof top bar is an nice way to have a nice view of the lake and some parts of the city. Unfortunately everything else is a joke. Terrible service, amazingly overpriced "drinks" that looks like a glass of tap water, canned olives terrible pizzas.. You name it..... More

Great selection of different cuisine, mostly mediterranean, nicely presented, good service and atmosphere. Workable wine list and drinks. Delicious cappuccino. Great location and crowd. Busy especially for lunch in a good weather.

This was our first visit, we were expecting a slightly stuffy environment but perhaps because it was a brunch and once a month Chinese themed, it had a younger atmosphere which may suit the more casually dressed diner. The hotel offers valet parking which is very helpful and the restaurant being on the ground floor but slightly raised provides commanding... More
