perfectly located beer garden on the edge of the lake

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 ?

I've eaten here on different occasions: 1) restaurant - with a view and patio seating. menu has everything you could want and the wine menu is quite plentiful. 2) ballroom - we had our wedding reception here for 80 people and the food was amazingly delicious. We had so many compliments from our guests too. Service here, whether you're being... More
