This is a very nice restaurant on a top of a mountain pass with a view over Zurich and the Zurich lake. The interior is typical Swiss, very nice and relaxed. The food was really good. The menu is mainly Swiss, with some Asian influence. To our great surprise we actually had one of the best spring rolls that we... More

My first visit was for a coffee. had their specialty which was quite boozy. The cup was bespoke and given to me as a part of the price. Still have it. The second visit was for a Swiss fondue. It was winter and snow all over. Really nice. Stuffed toys lead up the stairs. very unusual. Try the place over... More

The restaurant is beautiful in its interior and if you can sit outside at the edge, the view down to (the lake of) Zurich is breathtaking. The meals are excellent Swiss kitchen with very good quality. The staff in there are very warm and friendly.

The place is a bit off the main track, but it is in a beautiful surrounding, right on top of a peak. Easy to reach by car from Adliswill or Horgen. The menu is not very extensive but everybody can find his preference. The Fondue comes in various types and we had the classic fondue which was absolutely great. The... More

Great in every respect but i was shocked by the bill. I'm just not used to this kind of dining in Switzerland. But as a thank you to our hosts it was a pleasure to pay. Outdoor dining was very pleasant and with friendly service and good food (and they treat dogs very well) it is a good place to... More

Not my first time here, and what makes me come back is the incredible view of Lake Zurich valley while eating in a nice outdoor garden terrace. Very nice for a romantic meal or with friends. We found the service really quite friendly and efficient. The waiter went out of their way to adjust the parasols so that we were... More

We were charged 52 Francs for water and told afterwards that 'This is Switzerland'. We have lived here for 2 years and never have we been charged anywhere near this amount. The waitress was unapologetic and brusque. Highly disappointing.

Really friendly host (5 stars), creamed veal scallops (4 stars), creamed asparagus (3 stars), didn't like the beef tartare as it resembled more a mousse with toast that has nothing to do with toasted bread at all.

we've been there four times. for drinks and for food. the staff is quite friendly but tends to be under pressure at first sight. the food is only average to be honest. when it comes to coffee and cake, the apple strudel is very very expensive. The point is that the place has something unique that makes you come back... More

Nice staff and ambiance but food quality was average to poor. The soup was extremely salty but they graciously took it back. Main courses tasted similar and seemed that all were fried in the same oil. It's unfortunate as we would love to make this our restaurant of choice but the dishes are just too disappointing. Price to quality is... More
