The Hafenrestaurant offers all the main ingredients for an enjoyable meal: a limited but good selection of dishes, very friendly service, a breathtaking view of the lake, an outdoor floating patio. Because of its popularity among locals, parking can be challenging during main dining hours. Non-smokers be aware: smoking is permitted on the patio and can be a nuisance. The... More

Took some work colleagues for dinner. Wanted to showcase the landscape and offer local cuisine, and this restaurant is excellent for that. Super service, food and views of the lake & mountains. Would definitely recommend.

I visited here on a monday night and it was reasonably busy which is always a good sign. We sat on the terrace and it was beautiful right on the lake with amazing views. The waitress was quick enough with the first drinks but then it all went wrong. I ordered my food along with the 5 others at the... More

The food and was good but with the mix of vegetables and mushrooms I'd say there was about 30g of meat on the plate The location is lovely and we picked a great bottle of wine. Of course the wine was brutally... More

Ate here with some work colleagues and it was very nice indeed. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Great selection of gins for those interested and the wine especially the Pinot Noir is excellent. The food is good but not mind blowing

the view at this establishment can not be topped! The snow capped mountains blend seamlessly into the verdant hills and shimmering lake... the fare is better than average, with local fish options, and the service is quite good.

Just had dinner last night there with a business friend. Great restaurant with a balcony over the water and the best view over the lake and the mountains. Service was really friendly and the food outstanding. Can only recommend this place for business and private meetings. Really worth a visit.

Service is very attentive and smiling all the time which makes it for a pleasant dining experience. We tried their tartars, both beef and salmon. The first one being very good. As main dish I had...

We visited this restaurant on a sunday night. It was really nice weather but unfortunately no table available on the terrace, so we decided to have dinner inside. It took very long for we could order our drinks and food, also we had to wait long for our drinks and food to be served. Because of us sitting inside (and... More
