“Nice view over Zurich”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

What makes this restaurant is the view, the view and the view. Was there for a business dinner in a separate dining area with lake view. Food was good. One would expect more finesse for the price though. The negative was that the dining room was very cold, both in temperature and in atmosphere. But then, there is the spectacular view over Zurich to make up for this. It is nice to have seen this location, but don't think I would go there again.

“First the view, then the wine list”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

If you come here to meet some Football Stars in this FIFA restaurant you will be disappointed. I came here twice but never saw any known person. After all who cares! But the view on Zurich and its lake is unmatchable. Food is good but rather on the pricey side. Very good wine list with excellent swiss wine selection. But one important advice: be careful with the specials of the day not being on the menu, they are particularly expensive and the personel not in a hurry to mention the price. For the rest the service was nicely orchestrated.

“Great view on Zurich and the lake - but at a high price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The good things first: the view on Zurich and the lake is great and the interiour of the restaurant is very enjoyable. The service was very attentive. The quality of the food was good but it was nothing special compared to the price we payed. I have eaten better at other places at a lower cost.

Excellent environment, and view on the city, masterpieces of foods, good staff. It is a fancy restaurant with high prices however this isn't the highest if you compare with other swiss places...

“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.
