Amazing views, lovely outside lounge and the inside is lit by soft candle light. Service is sadly mediocre Swiss service and the food prices (fish special chf 55!) are crazy although the quality of our meal was good. Just not worth the price. I would recommend it for cocktails but not dinner.

Our first visit turned out to be just perfect. What a great place to enjoy a sunny afternoon with perfect drinks, great service, and some great bar food. A perfect place!

I love the Fischstube! If you wake up in Zurich and it's a sunny day... even just a "decent weather" day, take tram 2 or 4 to the Froelichtstrasse and walk deep into the Chinese Garden.... or even better: the Water bus to the Casino!!! Once you reach the area, walk to the tip of the Zurichhorn, you find this... More

We heard so much about that restaurant and thought we should try it on a Birthday. The waiter was not paying attention, we had to call him a few times as he forgot the water / coffee... the restaurant outside wasn't even full. The Tartar was very dry and had now taste. This Restaurant is very pricey for the qualitative... More

On a sunny summer day in Zurich this place is hard to beat. A mesmerising view of the lake, outstanding service from friendly, knowledgeable staff (who also speak impeccable English). Good food (especially the fish/seafood dishes) and excellent prosecco. There are three "tiers": the formal restaurant which generally requires that you book in advance; here the menu is more extensive.... More

Very well prepared food, friendly service and a fantastic view over the lake. We had the Felchenfilet and the Rindsfilet. Both were excellent

Totally overrated place. Value for money is pretty average, saying this the food is good but also pricey. The view/location is stunning! Why the bad rating? Attitude of staff and service policy is horrible! For example, they serve fries to kids but not to adults. If you are sitting in the middle of the place - no Schnitzel. If you... More
