The location is lovely, it is by the lake and has some big trees which makes it very cosy during the summer. However we used to come here 15 years ago and it was always noticeable that the service was good and the food also. However, things have changed. The service is rude and when ordering meat we got a... More

Location is unfortunately tarnished by the poor service. The waiter yelled at us while we repeatedly asked to place our order. He literally blow a fuse in front of the patrons and told us he would boycott our table. Upon addressing our concerns to the (junior) management we quickly realized he was not in control and referred to another waiter.... More

I've been to the Capitain's Lounge Monchhof am see on a beautiful summer evening with friends and family. The restaurant is beautifully located on the lake shore and location is most probably the only added value of the place. Courses got served at random time and order: I got my lamb rack a good 15 minutes before my wife had... More

Slowest service around with so many staff walking around not even paying attention to their guests. After waiting 10 minutes and waving at out waitress we finally placed our wine order, after another 15 minutes our waitress came back to ask again what we wanted! Finally 30 minutes after arriving we finally got some drinks. Then the fun with the... More

Enjoying a business dinner (inside) at this remote place with decent food and good wine ended in the early evening suddenly. The junior boss, rather special behavior, decided to increase the volume of the chillout music from already average db (just capable to talk) to more than 100 db party sound and run off. There was just us and a... More

This place is right on the lake and it is a really nice location. On a nice summer evening, its a great place to get a beer. That being said, the service is very spotty so only venture here if you have a decent amount of patience. The view and the beer always sedates me enough to overlook the inattentive... More

I always enjoy the ambience at Monchhof on warm day - located at the zurich lake and very close to the water, under the chestnut trees. The dishes from the grill are particularly tasty and fresh and we had a generous serving of grilled prawns with baked potato.

4 stars for a lakeside setting. 4 stars for the only waiter who seemed to manage all of us! 3 stars for the food! We had large prawns and a baked potato. And that's what you get besides garnish! Not a lettuce leaf or vegetable in sight. The prawns were good but the bake potato was drowning in some pinky... More

I've been here many times and always was a pleasure. You can get tasty BBQ or enjoy the delicious food at Captain's Lounge.
