The sun was out during lunch so we sat outdoors. Lovely views. The dishes on the menu were all very expensive. I tried the salmon which was excellent. The portion size was just right for me. Lads may consiser it a bit small. Everyone on the table gave good feedback for their dish. A very friendly waiter took care of... More

Great view, terrible service. Under staffed and overwhelmed! After waiting 20 minutes for a requested check, I had to tackle a server and made them cash me out on the spot.

View is of course astonishing as it is directly on the lake. Food is really nice although a bit pricey, my fish was really well prepared and the sushis we ordered were fantastic. Fresh and tasty. This is really a pitty that the service is so slow. Had to wait for so long for each and every plate, even the... More

You pay for the view as the food here is well overpriced as most other reviewers have pointed out. The atmosphere in the summer is wonderful and they serve brunch buffet on Sunday.

Spent the day at a Symposium in the complex, with excellent lunch buffet and evening cocktail reception. Very warm, so we decided not to return to the sweltering City and booked a table. Very good food. Very competent and friendly service. And a good wine list. 5 Very happy bunnies
