I have known this restaurant for nearly 40 years now. It is in a beautiful setting, the atmosphere charming. I have witnessed a selection of managers over the years. This present manager is so full of himself consequently a very rude manner that i will not bother going back until he is gone. This is the 4th time I have... More

Ate there coming back from ski tour as my friend lives there and never had been before. Super place. Not cheap, but in Swiss context not dear either. Great great starter (tartar) and first course (calf ravioli). Main course (veal shoulder) a bit dry, but dessert made up for it. Friends main course (lamb) was impeccable. Short of service staff...

Had dinner with colleagues from work. Restaurant is well situated up the hill with a nice lake view. Food was solid, well prepared and wrk sized. Had the fish and it was creatively prepared and presented. The dessert chocolates were also great. Wine menu is decent in terms of range and includes the big names, i.e. Super Tuscans and various...

We had dinner here this week and enjoyed a great meal during Valentines Day. The set menu we all have chosen was well thought through and a great combination of several excellent dishes. Very well presented, very tasty and served by excellent staff. Nothing wrong here ...

We visited without a booking on Saturday lunch time. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy with just four parties in , possibly because of the time of year. The food arrived quickly and was outstanding. Crustacean soup to start followed by chicken with spinach for my partner and traditional veal with rosti for me. Service was just right - we never...

I have been there for dinner and everything was perfect: the food is very fine and delicious. the service was friendly, the place is very special. Only 1 point, it is not the cheapest place but you feel it was worth. I would advise the tasting menu.

Oberer Monchhof has fabulous food in a great old building. Inside, the ceilings are low, and you really can feel the history as you sit. The best is if you have a chance to sit outside on a summer's evening. There are chairs and tables under gigantic chestnut trees - with an incredible view of the lake. The restaurant is... More

I had a very bad experience in this restaurant. I live nearby and I went for a tete-a-tete dinner with my husband. The place was not crowded, a week day. They told us to wait to be seated and then kept us waiting for 15 (!!!) minutes. We waited nevertheless because we were enjoying the view. The owner comes finally... More

From what I see the reviews below are very outdated. Here comes a recent experience. We were looking for a special place overlooking the lake for a small family celebration (15 people). When we came to taste the menu, it was simply amazing and we right away agreed that this was the right place for us. We chose a tasting... More
