“Excellent view and delicious typical food”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

We visited this restaurant twice and had two different impressions. The first time we had very good icecreams in the early afternoon but the service was horrible (dirty table was not cleaned until we finally openly asked). The second time we had an excellent dinner with big portions and the service was very much better.
The garden with a lake view is very nice, they really have a lot of tables and even if they are reserved you can choose a table provided that you leave before the guests arrive (signposts on the tables provide the reservation time).
Very closely located to the lake stage, it is a perfect location to dine before or after the opera.

“Subpar service, overpriced food”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

After spending a lovely weekend in the Alps with friends, I was saddened that this was the last place we ate at because it left a very unfavorable impression on all of us and spoiled our memories of what was otherwise a wonderful trip.

To start, two members of our party were ignored by the waitstaff when they joined us late. The glasses we were given were dirty. The food itself was very overpriced, and while the view is gorgeous, it doesn't justify charging as much as they do for the food seeing as the food itself is mediocre at best. In the end, I was so disappointed in my salad I ended up sending it back. To her credit, the waitress was also very understanding about this. My partner's Käsespätzle were decent, but nothing to write home about and certainly not worth the ten euros they charge.

In all, it was quite a letdown seeing as how I left the restaurant just as hungry as when I came in.

“Great Food, Great View”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

On a beautiful day in Bregenz, this is the place to sit on the patio overlooking the Boden See and have a delicious Schnitzel, or beer or a dessert, or, all three. It is a perfect location to people-watch. The service good, but, can be slow during busy times like noon.
