Good restaurant. Good service particularly for bigger groups. Restaurant nicely located next to lake. Nothing really extraordinarily but good professional service which is important for larger business groups.

The old ship in is a traditional place at it's best. Family owend Restaurant in a nice atmosphere. Higly recomended, not really cheap ( 40 Franks for a dinner), but very good value for the price.

This is not a Restaurant review. We stayed in the Hotel. The Schiff has a few rooms and we stayed for two nights. The rooms are not deluxe but everything works and is clean. The room was not too small and the bed was good. For the money we paid this was a fair deal. The staff is friendly, the... More

I like the food there. Pizzas are average, but the rest is very delicious. I like the service and the variety of food. You feel the passion of the owners to satisfying the customers. The prices are very good (would even say cheap compared to the quality of food). We strongly recommend this restaurant, close to the lake of Aegeri.

I have been a few times in this restaurant and always had a nice dinner. Also with children this is an ideal place as the staff is very friendly and helpful. From outside the restaurant looks also very nice with well kept flower beds in front.

If you're looking for cutting edge cuisine or flashy interior, then you've come to the wrong place. But if you want an excellent family restaurant with high quality food and friendly staff, come right in. No, English is not spoken. That's why you should have learned German before entering, but "pizza" translates well and they make those on site by... More

We have been to the Schiff in Unteraegeri a few times - and it has become one of our favorites, be it for lunch or dinner. The pizzas are really very good with a wide choice. They often have "special menus" depending on the season. The standard a la carte menu is very large so there is something for everyone.... More

We went for dinner and tried this restaurant in Unterägeri next to the main road. There are plenty of parking spots outside the restaurant for guests. The first impression was very good. The room, tables, chairs and decoration are given impression of an upper class restaurant. From our table we could see the lake. We ordered Rösti with vegetable potato... More

A good place to enjoy food at reasonable prices. The manager is a friendly and helpful lady. The location lies on the main road without a pleasant view.
