We opted for this pearl in Zug to enjoy the stunning weather on a Saturday afternoon. Parking is available just outside the place, which is handy if driving. Sitting outside on the deck was the perfect way to enjoy lunch and the food did not disappoint. I had the Cesar salad which was fresh, tasty and included quality ingredients. Staff... More

You can't get any better views of the lake as this restaurant is actually built partially extending over the lake. A reliably excellent restaurant with prices reflecting this high standard. Great for business meetings or work events for 10-15 people. Good wine list, white linen table cloths. Recommend booking an outside table if the weather permits.

Really worth taking time to go here if you have a client meeting or friends, whilst the service as people say is not top notch the food is good and the location makes up for a wonderful location, definitely recommend you try.

I was looking for a restaurant with good view of the lake. I had shortlisted this restaurant for our office party as they have very good seating outside but SOMEONE thought a party at circus would be better. So we had overpriced questionable food after seeing animals dance ! (Moving on) Anyway ... This hotel is the best you can... More

As a first time visitor to Switzerland, while I had heard of the lakes, it was quite something to see one with the snow tipped Alps in the background, a setting sun, and pretty nice food. I went for the lamb which was perfectly pink and the seasonal asparagus. Service was a bit slow, but efficient. At one point, I... More

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
