We have been in the past & quite enjoyed the food there. We went there with friends over from England. We sat at a table then moved to another, the waiter complained we were blocking the way so we moved to another table, I asked to order & was given such a disdainful look I thought we weren't now going to get served even though the people on the next table were being served. I was right. We waited 10 minutes longer & then left. It seems to me they much be raking the money in if they can just ignore 4 customers like that. No sign of anyone in charge to complain to either. Well, that's one place we won't be going to ever again.

We stopped here to have lunch after walking around Zurich for a while. The food was excellent, I think we all had brats and fries, and the service was fast and friendly. We had some street performers playing music nearby and our table overlooked the lake, making for a very memorable lunch experience!

Perfect location along Lake Zurich and the promenade. Try to get a seat on the lakeside deck. Very relaxed atmosphere. Make sure you try the wursts and local beers!

This little 'Gartenbeiz' has a buzzy atmosphere. Its centrally located right on the shores of the lake and can be reached by foot in 10 minutes from Bellevue. The service was lousy. We wanted a slightly ammended version of a drink with wine iso sparkling and this was not possible as he could not charge this. Live band on Saturday aftermoon/evening which added to great atmosphere.

This restaurant was a fun stop while we were walking on the lake. The food was recommended by the waiter and was pretty tasty (we had the "pumpispeiss"). The good beer selection and a nice cocktail for my wife made it a very nice spot to relax, do some people-watching, and take in the scenery.
