Even in early September we could eat a memorable meal beside the lake of Zug. The previous owner had a Michelin star and prices to match. He has now moved to nearby Menzingen. In November last year the new owners moved in from Kussnacht am Rigi. They are a husband who is the chef and his wife who runs the... More

As a local resident I always wanted to give it a try and go to the Sternen. As i heard of the rumors of its closing coming up soon I though that my friends birthday is a good reason to invite her to a fine dinner. Located in a really picturesque antique wooden Swiss house right next to the lake,... More

We visited this amazing restaurant in April 2016 (Osternferien) and we enjoyed everything! The service was great. Although we speak little German, they helped us in any way they could. Moreover they gave us excellent recommendations. Without a doubt, one of the best restaurants we enjoyed in our Swiss trip! It is a bit expensive, but the experience is worthwhile.

We had a great night out and a delicious dinner at Sternen. Lovely setting: warm and romantic in this 400 year old house, with subtle lighting not old fashioned, but contemporary. From the amuse-bouche until the greetings from the kitchen with our espresso (homemade friandises), everything had been prepared with great care and was very sophisticated in taste. The various...

The restaurant Sternen is definitely a fine dining experience in the village of Walchwil, about 10km south of Zug on the lake of Zug. It is at the start of the entry to the village and sits on the Seestrasse across the road from the lake. It is very much fine dining with high prices. You have to book ahead... More

Have been here many times over the last years and it is very good. Some recent edits to the menu, no a la carte any more but they are flexible enough. Sad my favorite caramel variation dessert didn't make the cut but maybe it will reappear in summer (wonderful eating at the lake!) Not such a fan of the curry... More

We had a very nice dinner on a sunday evening in this charming restaurant that has a long history (1834). The hospitality of the Weders is second to none, the food of excellent quality and the warm and cosy atmosphere is ideal to "slow down". It is worth the 20 min drive from Zug!

We dined here by the lake with local friends. The restaurant aims high with its food and mostly delivers. The setting and friendly attentive staff certainly helps. We went the degustation option and that seems to be the way to go, giving the chef a chance to be creative. Most courses featured a single product being done several ways, with... More

Friendly and high level staff, amazing place (in the summer on the lakeside, otherwise beautiful traditional rooms), quiet ambiance, seasonal very high cuisine with amazing choice of top ingredients, well chisen wine list and what i appreciate most is that those qualities never change over the years. One of my favourite places
