“Never again.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

This was just terrible. I usually try to give the benefit of the doubt to a restaurant, but this was just an unpleasant experience. The service was unfriendly and impolite. Furthermore, they tried to bill us for some wine we never took and barely apologized for the mistake. The food was not only nothing special, but rather bland to my taste. The menu does not propose anything really exciting. And the whole thing is overpriced. It seems these guys are still in business because that have one of the prettiest view of the city. However, I still would not return there.

“Great setting. Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

The view from the Sonnenberg is great with all of Zurich below you. The staff is friendly but needs a little more experience, esp. with the English language.The food is good but not great.We ordered the lamb( a little dry), the chicken(good) and the halibut( a little bland). Good wine selection. Overall, worth the experience.

“Wonderful View, Meal to Remember!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Not far from FIFI HQ's, is a special place to dine. The menu is varied, and the scenery is spectacular. The prices are really rather moderate for such a breathtaking view of The Zurich Sea.

We took a taxi from the wonderful Marriott in Zurich, and it was a 15 minute cab ride. There was a wonderful wine selection and the service was very nice. Try to get a window table and enjoy the very memorable meal.

“Excellent food, located in the FIFA headquarter with the excellent lake & city view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012 via mobile

Excellent of everything: lake & city view, food, service, and located the garden of FIFA headquarter by their viniyard. Great homemade ravioli, bread and red wine from their viniyard garden. I cannot not ask for more!!! Considering eating out is expensive in Zuruch, the price of this restaurant is not bad at all!
