At the Romantik Seehotel Sonne in Küsnacht, the choice is yours. If you'd like to dine in a gourmet restaurant, we suggest you try our famous Sonnengalerie - with an "al fresco" option in summer. But if you're after something more down-to-earth, you'll find Swiss specialities and modern international dishes in our cosy and historic dining rooms. Our beer garden is right next to Lake Zurich. Enjoy the wonderful shade under our big trees and simple, delicious self-service dishes in summer. When evening comes, end the day in style with a select drink in our elegant tower bar. The Sonne is a little piece of Küsnacht - we wish you a warm welcome!

Lovely terrace restaurant

Beautiful terrace a lovely place to eat on a hot summers day. Restaurant was very busy. A few large groups. The food was very good. Service though quick was very unfriendly.

My wife and I visited the main restaurant in the Romantik Seehotel Sonne twice this month on the occasion of our birthdays. On both occasions we were extremely impressed and consider this to offer a high quality and complete dining experience, possibly the best in Zürich. It delivers a complete package to delight the senses. Firstly, parking is not a... More

Went for a business lunch. Good daily menu and a la carte. Very good service. Lovely wood panelled dining room. Lunch for two without alcohol, but with coffee was CHF 86 with tip. Probably 10 more per person than in the City Come in the warmer months and sit out on the terrace. They have self service

Lovely beer garden by the lake, just along from the Kuesnacht schiffsteig. Prices are high, service at the food counter is slow, food is fine but nothing super special, but the friendly staff and especially the location make up for all of it. Feel like you are in the mediterranean!

I've ordered a summer menu "Giant Praws" ... Good size and delicious. But, the value for money is "3 Stars" - 90CH 3 Courses and 55CH the average of main options. The Restaurant has a Good Service, Great Enviroment and Amazing Zurick Lake view!

We were staying at the Sonne Hotel and decided to try their restaurant for dinner. We sat out on the covered patio off the main dining room, it was lovely with the view of lake Zurich. We had Swiss style veal with mushrooms and rosti (hash brown potatoes). Service was good even though there were large parties dining there as... More

The Sonne has two restaurants: an outdoor casual restaurant frequented by locals and visitors when the weather is benign and second, formal restaurant with a covered terrace view of lake and indoor dining also with lake view. All are excellent; wine list fine; exceptions made without questions; service at one's own pace of course. The best of food served aesthetically... More

This was a great place for lunch after a challenging bike ride from Lucerne. The English menu has far fewer options than the Swiiss German menu, so you are better off getting the German menu and using the translator on your phone. We had an iced coffee, which was more of a milkshake, as we have found in Switzerland. We... More

The best deal in the area: all you can eat (and drink: excellent powerful red wines, usually from Spain), buffet saldas, meats and caramel cream deserts. Get the pommes allumettes and you will be happy. Convivial and comfort food at a great price, who can ask for more ?
