We ate here during a business trip. The main courses are expensive for UK standards (CHF 50+ per main course). The wait us reasonable. My lamb was pink but very tender and cheesecake was not that sweet, which I like.

Dear Peakao thank you for your feedback. Our main dishes various from CHF 24 to 64 approximatly, so you do have a wide ranch. In Switzerland you usually cook the lamb pink especially lamb chops. We do hope you it.

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!
