Not far away from ZH this restaurant has a great terrace overlooking the Züri-see. Unfortunately is not directly at the lake: there is a small pedestrian way which separates two restaurant: the Hotel Sonne which is beautiful and a kind of self service restaurant which is directly at the front lake. So the feeling is a bit strange...you are in... More

Add to last review We took a walk through the older part of. Zurich ending at the boat quay on the lake. The 30 minute ferry ride to the hotel at dusk was lovely, complete with wine service at our table. The ferry stops right at the hotel and is a great way to unwind on the way home. The... More

Lunch offered a surprising selection of very imaginative dishes, well prepared and served by courteous staff - which incidentally includes valet parking, which is rare in Switzerland! What was supposed to be a quick lunch ended in a 2 hour feast. Wines available by the glass were well chosen for most tastes. The desserts a true delight (unfortunately detrimental to... More

The restaurant is located directly on the lake next to the landing for excursion ships. One can get there by ship from Zurich (or any other station) or by car -there is limited parking (valet). To be clear, the restaurant has an upscale waiter served part, and a self service area directly in the shore. I am writing about the... More

Sonne is a great place to go for a chilled drink at the end of the day. Watching the sunset whilst having a cold beer there is brilliant

I agree with both, CollTom and ZurichExpats, The food, especially the salad buffet, at the self-service place right on the water is rather mediocre, but the location is very pleasant. However, if you choose the elegant restaurant with the covered terrace, younwill be very pleased with the service, food Nd wine list.

Have eaten outside here several times because the location and atmosphere are great. However, the food is pretty average in quality and is quite pricey, even by Swiss standards. Come here for drinks on a summer evening, but eat somewhere else first.

The food is excellent with good daily specials. The wine list is good and the wine pairing as suggested by the waitress was superb.
