Description: The Sonnenberg (Sun Mountain) is a place of power and affords some of Zurich's most beautiful panoramic views. Situated high above the city, it provides wide-ranging views of the Alps, the Lake of Zurich and over the rooftops of the city. Welcome to the world of the Sonnenberg. The restaurant that bears the same name enchants with fantastic views, creative culinary arts and an attractive ambience. Step inside and have a taste.

If you come here to meet some Football Stars in this FIFA restaurant you will be disappointed. I came here twice but never saw any known person. After all who cares! But the view on Zurich and its lake is unmatchable. Food is good but rather on the pricey side. Very good wine list with excellent swiss wine selection. But one important advice: be careful with the specials of the day not being on the menu, they are particularly expensive and the personel not in a hurry to mention the price. For the rest the service was nicely orchestrated.

The good things first: the view on Zurich and the lake is great and the interiour of the restaurant is very enjoyable. The service was very attentive. The quality of the food was good but it was nothing special compared to the price we payed. I have eaten better at other places at a lower cost.

Excellent environment, and view on the city, masterpieces of foods, good staff. It is a fancy restaurant with high prices however this isn't the highest if you compare with other swiss places...

This was just terrible. I usually try to give the benefit of the doubt to a restaurant, but this was just an unpleasant experience. The service was unfriendly and impolite. Furthermore, they tried to bill us for some wine we never took and barely apologized for the mistake. The food was not only nothing special, but rather bland to my taste. The menu does not propose anything really exciting. And the whole thing is overpriced. It seems these guys are still in business because that have one of the prettiest view of the city. However, I still would not return there.

The view from the Sonnenberg is great with all of Zurich below you. The staff is friendly but needs a little more experience, esp. with the English language.The food is good but not great.We ordered the lamb( a little dry), the chicken(good) and the halibut( a little bland). Good wine selection. Overall, worth the experience.
