Really friendly host (5 stars), creamed veal scallops (4 stars), creamed asparagus (3 stars), didn't like the beef tartare as it resembled more a mousse with toast that has nothing to do with toasted bread at all.

we've been there four times. for drinks and for food. the staff is quite friendly but tends to be under pressure at first sight. the food is only average to be honest. when it comes to coffee and cake, the apple strudel is very very expensive. The point is that the place has something unique that makes you come back... More

Nice staff and ambiance but food quality was average to poor. The soup was extremely salty but they graciously took it back. Main courses tasted similar and seemed that all were fried in the same oil. It's unfortunate as we would love to make this our restaurant of choice but the dishes are just too disappointing. Price to quality is... More

This is a place I've been to twice before, & on neither occasion was I impressed with the service--they have a superb location with a stunning view & that's their game & they know it..people come for the view. So they don't really give a damn. well shame on them. Yesterday in glorious mid-afternoon sunshine, they had cordoned-off the ENTIRE... More

On a nice summer evening the terrace is wonderful, high above Zurich - it was great to escape from the city heat. The food is quite good, but rather expensive. We actually got very friendly service.

This is a great restaurant. Wide selection of food, good quality, good service and nice location. However, you should try it in good weather to be able to enjoy the view.

I would highly recommend the restaurant if our are visiting as the views overlooking the lake and the city are breathtaking. It is set on the mountain and the scenery is just spectacular. I found the food very good and nobody at our table was disappointed in their choices. The service was fairly slow, but that was fine, because it... More

We used to go often there to eat with family! The food and the quality is always good! The service as well! Buchenegg is a traditional restaurant and to get over there you will cross a nice driveway till up on the mountain, where you will enjoy the nice view. The calf's liver with roesti potatoes (kalbsleber mit roesti) and... More

Ate here for a graduation meal with family and friends. The food was average and staff rude at times, but overall the location made it worth while. It's a steep winding road up the pass, but great views overlooking Zurich and the lake.

OK guys, so if you manage to find this place high in the mountains opposite Lake Zurich - you have already done very well. Breathtaking view of both the lake and the city if Zurich below, I would recommend a summer evening visit like we did. The food is standard tourist fare, and the staff speak very little English. But... More
