Feind of US celebrated and invited 30 people for brunch. Pretty nice brunch with all you may think of. Given a wonderful, bright day, we were able to enjoy the lake view.

My husband and I took a good friend there last week as a birthday brunch. The service was terrible and the buffet was limited- and often empty - my husband went up 3 times waiting for food to be refilled -which wasn't. We had been there many times for brunch so we're very disappointed.

We had no reservation when we arrived. It was a beautiful evening - the terrace was full. As luck would have it- a reservation was late and Nadia - the lovely Manager on duty - gave us the only table available. Nadia and her staff went out of their way to welcome us and cater to our every need. When... More

At one of the better summer evenings in Zurich, Lake Side is a nice place to have dinner with outside dining area that feels like kind of on the lake. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Nice selection of food and wines, even if - value for money - on the expensive side for Zurich (admittedly, not cheap by default).... More

If you want to visit the Lake Side restaurant it is recommended to make a reservation first - especially in the summer season. Their sushi variety is fantastic and fresh ... large portions so be aware of this when you order or go with a big hunger. The view over the lake and the mountains in the distance make this... More

The sun was out during lunch so we sat outdoors. Lovely views. The dishes on the menu were all very expensive. I tried the salmon which was excellent. The portion size was just right for me. Lads may consiser it a bit small. Everyone on the table gave good feedback for their dish. A very friendly waiter took care of... More
