Very nice location along the Zurich lake, with the view on the white mountain peaks in the background. Artistic atmosphere. Big terrace and a lot of space inside. The food is excellent. I recommend the brunch menu. .

It's great. The restaurant is in a converted warehouse overlooking the lake and part of a complex of warehouse/studios. There are lots of tables outside but eating inside was lovely as the large windows were open and it all felt very relaxed and friendly. The staff were very helpful and the food was delicious. It's not cheap or expensive and... More

Astonished how good you can eat here. Our first time and it won't be the last. They change their menus everyday to fit the seasons. The ambiance is pleasant, a bit alternative, roomy with a view of the Zürich Lake. It offers one of the best view of the lake if you sit outside when weather permits.I had something close... More

The setting is lovely... outdoor tables by the lake with a great view, nice shade and space to lounge by the water when you are done eating. Also, some cool graffiti to check out. The food was good and the portions reasonable. The prices were not bad (considering this is Zurich) and I thought it was a good value.

Great setting by the lake, but the food is basic and way over-priced. The salad was basically leaves but the bread was nice and fresh to mop up the not-so-tasty French dressing. The drinks (as usual in Zürich) were expensive too.

I have lived in Zurich for nearly four years and this remains one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the food is good, and the price is decent for Switzerland. I also want to mention that they always have some nice veggie and vegan options. I am not a vegetarian, but I like to eat good veggie... More

I went with a big group of people to the Ziegel oh Lac on a Thursday night. We were all looking forward to a funny night with friends and enjoy a bit of Italian food. It turned out to be a huge disappointment. The service was very unfriendly, the food was overcooked and not tasty. But at least the view... More

Summing up, this is an excellent restaurant if you like the alternative, hippie-like lifestyle with a wide range of vegan and vegetarian dishes and you do not mind to wait a little longer or have self-service beverage. PRO: Situated on the shore of Lake Zurich with a wonderful view of the mountains on one side and the historic old city... More
