I stop there often on my way to and from Zürich, Nice Ambiente inside, and wonderful garden in summer. Good fish dishes and a choise of swiss and international wine. Recomended. Somtimes the service staff is a little confused ( mainly by nice weather outside) Too young people serving, and the chef de service cannot allways manage to direct them... More

If you like fresh fish, served traditional style, like your granny made it, or a more modern style, this restaurant will blow your mind. It's not cheap at all, reservation is recommended, if you like to eat under old trees with a fantastic view to the small island Ufenau. If you like to come with your boat, it will work.

You want to have dinner at Schiff in the summer. The food is really good (it has a Mediterranean feel to it), but the real attraction is the sunset over Lake Zuerich. Make sure that you have a table lakeside, and enjoy the view.

Just had a beautiful meal at this lovely restaurant. I can certainly recommend the fresh ravioli, we didn't have much time to digest our starter before our main course arrived. That is the only criticism I have. I think the next time I would tell them to take it easy.

Located nicely by the Lake Zurich you have a beautiful view. On a warm summers day you can sit outside under the trees or if it gets too hot, there are a lot of spaces inside. The food is very good and served quickly. It doesn't matter if you only want some ice cream or a full meal, you are... More

My personal favorite are the perch filets in... More

If you like fish.....there are options and the stubli is better value for money, can be pricy for what you get. What you order makes a big difference, ie set menu is best value by far.
