Great location, food was a bit expensive

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... read 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

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

Amazing setting by the lake with a pretty garden and a fantastic view. The service is warm and very professional. There are heaters outdoors and a curtain makes sure you can still enjoy the view at night while being kept warm. The table setting is very pretty with votives and elegant silverware. There is a kids menu for 26 CHF... More

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
