A pleasant surprise for brunch

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... read more

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.

Asked for a room with lake view and was not disappointed. As montreux was expensive we decided- since we had a balcony- we would have dinner and watch the sunset from there. Bought food from the local supermarket downstairs and the staff were so accommodating they even gave us plates knives and forks. No tea making facilities but once again... More

This is a traditional hotel in Zurich. The location is excellent and it is very well located. It does need some updating and I was surprised to find that their restaurant had very little movement. We had a very good discount, but I don't think it is worth if you have to pay full price.

It was a must to take a menu in order to estimate chef's imagination and skills. And it was really incredible! I would strongly recommend to try Kalbsruecken, seasonal offers (now it is white truffle) and to ask for somelier's advice - it will definitely add spark to the gastronomic experience. And it is really one of the finest restaurants... More

Stayed for one night travelling with the dog, they brought her a large bed, dog bowls and mats. Our room overlooked the lake with a large balcony. The hotel is in a great location and I have stayed here before but it is dated and needs updating it is by no means cheap. The staff are really friendly but sadly... More

We have enjoyed the summer menu "Tentation de homard et Champagne". It's a 4 course menu and with each serving, you will get a glass (or more) champagne which machtes the food in a perfect way. It was really fantastic. Great food, great champagne, very friendly staff. It is not cheap, but worth the money. The restaurant itself is very... More
