obviously the lakeside location is just plain beautiful. food was super good, and stating the origins of ingredients, fish, meat, almost all regional. but the staff…it makes you want to never leave. please bring them to luxembourg and teach, just wow. the staff also makes...that price/value is even rather cheap compared to other eats in the area, regarding that the average pizza with water and average service can cost you 30-40chf+. i recommend!!!More

We stopped in Weggis during a cruise on Lake Lucerne, A short walk from the pier and we found the Zee Restaurant. Once inside we were spoilt for choice by the lunch time menu. The staff were friendly and attentive. For starters we had Tatar...Beefsteak and baked Perch, They were super, For the main course Broiled fillet of trout, super tasty and filket steak with prawns in a port sauce. This steak was amazing, it was so tender and tasty. For dessert we both chose Swan's nest, a confection of meringues, fresh berries, cream, mango sorbet and chocolate ice cream indescribably wonderful.More

we have been in Zee for our anniversary. The menu choice is ok, with a bit on the fishy side, which is ok for a restaurant on the lakeside. My starter beef consommé was ok, but nothing special. Not enough taste in it. My husband...was happy with his carpaccio. My main was the duett of filets. Degree of cooking was unfortunately not to my taste, I haven't been asked about it anyway. the combination of bernaise sauce and red wine juice was also not really tasty. somehow a little bit sour. It was ok, but not worth the price. Desserts and wine were nice. The service was very good, our waitress was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive (as sometimes is the case, when they are "over-attentive). I would also recommend to rethink the decoration. The terrace is of course a great place, but when you have to stay inside because of the weather, the ambiance is not really inviting.More

Tasty meal, my husband chose the fish soup as a starter and it was excellent. The other choices and rest of meal was very good. Staff were helpful and friendly.

We had to ask for a vegetarian dish and other gluten and lactose free dish, but both dishes were completed without taste, much worse than those prepared by hospital restaurants! The vegetables were only steamed cooked and served without any condiment. Also the portions were...really small, I confess I get out the restaurant still hungry although a start and a main dish. I think the green salad, which they sell for the same price as the mixed salad (which include much more ingredients), had no more than 20g. I really don't recommend this restaurant and we will never come back!More

We had an excellent lunch on a sunny day by at this lakeside restaurant. The weiner schnitzel and fillet de perche was very tasty - nice rose wine and all round friendly efficient service. You definitely need to book on a summers day - quite...a few were turned away on the day we were there. Can highly recommend.More

Great experience, friendly staff! Visited for my wife’s birthday, with our young children and they took very good care of us and made us feel comfortable. Food was fresh and tasty, not too crazy priced but still a treat for the family to visit on...a sunny afternoon.More
