It's large, mostly quiet and has one if the most beautiful views of Zurisee (Zurich Lake). The ferry makes scheduled stops, sailboats and fishermen paint the scene as the sun sets to the S.east. Oh! The food. It's self serve. You... More

I ate here several times for dinner, both alone and in a group. The food is quite good, of a fine dining caliber. Menu has options for vegetarians too. In the spring they had a special asparagus menu. It is nice to sit outside when the weather is nice as there's a great view of Lake Zurich and the restaurant... More

We have eaten here a few times for dinner, and the food is tasty, and of a high standard. There is outdoor seating also, and the service is professional and friendly. The menu is varied, and the chef is good.

We enjoyed a leisurely weekend brunch at Sonne. The offerings were sufficient though not expansive. Fresh juices, great breads, and terrific service with a wonderful ambience.

My wife and I visited the main restaurant in the Romantik Seehotel Sonne twice this month on the occasion of our birthdays. On both occasions we were extremely impressed and consider this to offer a high quality and complete dining experience, possibly the best in Zürich. It delivers a complete package to delight the senses. Firstly, parking is not a... More

Went for a business lunch. Good daily menu and a la carte. Very good service. Lovely wood panelled dining room. Lunch for two without alcohol, but with coffee was CHF 86 with tip. Probably 10 more per person than in the City Come in the warmer months and sit out on the terrace. They have self service

Lovely beer garden by the lake, just along from the Kuesnacht schiffsteig. Prices are high, service at the food counter is slow, food is fine but nothing super special, but the friendly staff and especially the location make up for all of it. Feel like you are in the mediterranean!

I've ordered a summer menu "Giant Praws" ... Good size and delicious. But, the value for money is "3 Stars" - 90CH 3 Courses and 55CH the average of main options. The Restaurant has a Good Service, Great Enviroment and Amazing Zurick Lake view!

Description
At the Romantik Seehotel Sonne in Küsnacht, the choice is yours. If you'd like to dine in a gourmet restaurant, we suggest you try our famous Sonnengalerie - with an "al fresco" option in summer. But if you're after something more down-to-earth, you'll find Swiss specialities and modern international dishes in our cosy and historic dining rooms. Our beer garden is right next to Lake Zurich. Enjoy the wonderful shade under our big trees and simple, delicious self-service dishes in summer. When evening comes, end the day in style with a select drink in our elegant tower bar. The Sonne is a little piece of Küsnacht - we wish you a warm welcome!
