This restaurant is a typical restaurant that only survives due to the beautiful location. The food is okey... But the service is terribly bad! I was (unfortunately) already 3 times there and we always had bad experiences: - the waiter stating after dinner to our guest that they should disregard drinking a cappuccino late in the evening... Drinking warm milk... More

Been to this restaurant twice this summer. First time they forgot or misplaced our reservation, which was a bithday-party for 6. However they made it up by offering a bottle of prosecco for free. After dinner they moved us to the terrace to enjoy our dessert there. I had the fish and it was quite alright. For starter I had... More

Had a very nice evening at the restaurant. We had a set menu that was excellent and the wine and beer list extensive. It's very popular so I imagine booking is essential. Railway Station SBB Zug Schutzenge is 2 mins walk and a great option if you dont want to drive -- though limited (and popular) parking is available.

If you love fish, this is the restaurant for you. Lovely atmosphere, particularly if the weather is nice and you can sit outside by the lake. Staff friendly and attentive

Not sure if it's standard service in Switzerland but it is really sad. This place has one of the best view in zug. However nobody comes to serve you. You have to get up and ask for the waiters attention. The were more busy chatting and drinking coffee amongst themselves. After finally somebody takes your order. Wait another 15 minutes... More

I have tried so many times to get a dinner reservation but this place in the summer is a hot spot! Luckily last weekend we were able to enjoy a lovely lunch on the terrace as the sun shone on the water. They have a great kids menu and I totally loved their presentation of something as simple as fish... More

Large terrace overlooking the lake. Great view! Good food and friendly service. The place was packed at lunchtime, reservations might be required.

Lovely view by the lake. Nice menu and ambience. It was very lively and busy for a Thursday night. Very nice place. We will come back again.
