“Posh, posh, posh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

The location is fantastic, no doubt. The terrace is built on the lake so you have fantastic views from all sides. But that's about it. First hassle is the parking, either you use valet parking for your porsche (chf 10.-) or you will have to walk very far. To solve this issue, come by boat like many of the guests do. The scene is mainly 40+ with Louis Vuitton bags and too much jewellery. So much for the people. The staff was friendly but not very quick. The terrace was full as it was a warm Saturday night but considering the prices, I'd expected a different service. Our wine arrived when we had almost finished our main course. The food was average and lacking salt for all the three dishes. This place really only gets points for the location.

“Riviera on......Lake Zurich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

Italian or St Tropezian atmosphere, blondes with "It bags", tanned neighbors wearing summer whites or seaside colors.
Great, fresh pasta - traditional dishes such as Fegato alla veneziana, fishes done just so -with olive oil and herbs.
Arguably the best tiramisu North of the Italian border.
The excellent food is rather pricey but the location makes you feel like in a resort.
The Seehaus (Sea house) is a little corner of South just 20 min from the center of staid Zurich.
You can enjoy the bar on the water deck or choose the simpler beach house (Strandhaus).
Do not miss THE aperitif of the summer "Apérol spritz" (an Italian bitter fortified wine with white wine or prosecco on ice and an orange slice)
