Description: At the Romantik Seehotel Sonne in Küsnacht, the choice is yours. If you'd like to dine in a gourmet restaurant, we suggest you try our famous Sonnengalerie - with an "al fresco" option in summer. But if you're after something more down-to-earth, you'll find Swiss specialities and modern international dishes in our cosy and historic dining rooms. Our beer garden is right next to Lake Zurich. Enjoy the wonderful shade under our big trees and simple, delicious self-service dishes in summer. When evening comes, end the day in style with a select drink in our elegant tower bar. The Sonne is a little piece of Küsnacht - we wish you a warm welcome!

Not far away from ZH this restaurant has a great terrace overlooking the Züri-see. Unfortunately
is not directly at the lake: there is a small pedestrian way which separates two restaurant: the Hotel Sonne which is beautiful and a kind of self service restaurant which is directly at the front lake. So the feeling is a bit strange...you are in a great restaurant overlooking yes the see but also the self service place.

We took a walk through the older part of. Zurich ending at the boat quay on the lake. The 30 minute ferry ride to the hotel at dusk was lovely, complete with wine service at our table.
The ferry stops right at the hotel and is a great way to unwind on the way home. The special 5 course menu was a culinary delight without being overdone. Attentive but unobtrusive service.
We rarely try a full menu but this was special.

We were with friends on a beautiful evening after being brought to our table we had to wait a while after ordered the drinks and ordered the main course we had the most lovely food since a long time the only downside was that the waiter was more interested in other tables after asked for the bill we had to wait a half hour to get it and reminded him 3 times.
we didn't order a dessert but bought the ice cream at the counter 4 ice creams for the price off one at the restaurant!

food wise a great place service wise need some approvement.

Lunch offered a surprising selection of very imaginative dishes, well prepared and served by courteous staff - which incidentally includes valet parking, which is rare in Switzerland! What was supposed to be a quick lunch ended in a 2 hour feast. Wines available by the glass were well chosen for most tastes. The desserts a true delight (unfortunately detrimental to the caloric intake). We must return for dinner and hopefully the garden will still be open during the sunny autumn evenings. There are heaters to keep you warm just in case it gets a little chilly. The formal restaurant appears a bit tight on account of too many tables being placed in close proximity.

The restaurant is located directly on the lake next to the landing for excursion ships. One can get there by ship from Zurich (or any other station) or by car -there is limited parking (valet). To be clear, the restaurant has an upscale waiter served part, and a self service area directly in the shore. I am writing about the latter.
The food is reasonably priced, menus somewhat limited, but freshly made - sort of 'while you wait'. Food is quite nice though not gourmet, but i don't expect it for a self-serve restaurant. The garden is great with simple tables and chairs under beautiful shade trees and view onto the lake. Weekends and when the weather is nice it fills up quickly. It pays to get there early. I enjoyed eating there many times and warmly recommend it.
