Engel seeplatz - Visited for summer evening dinner. Fantastic location right on the lake. Great renovation work completed more tables etc. but the menu is sooooo uninspiring! Classic Wurst Käse salat, chicken salad so bland! At 26chf one would expect the salad to not come straight out if a bag. Melon was tasteless. Wurst Käse salat was bad! The cheese was not real cheese! Like some soft cheap imitation cheese?! And the restaurant doesn't declare what countries the meat & fish comes from on the menu. I asked where the fish was from the waiteress replied, i don't know.... also the restaurant has this policy of not printing a bill for you when you ask to pay. The waitress tells you the total amount from her digital hand held device. So you have no idea what you are paying for or if it's correct. Service staff were very friendly, food disappointing. Same as last year. Sadly not be returning unless for drinks only.

The hotel just renovated their lake restaurant under trees and the result is convincing. The location remains idyllic. The furniture is better than before. The staff was very friendly and thanks to electronic order taking our drinks came before we had finished looking around. There is slightly more choice on the menu and the quality was OK, nothing earthshaking for such a simple place but really OK. And the prices remain very reasonable.

Having a fancy lunch in business meeting, was awesome. The salad is so yummy. Don't miss the dessert as well.

Great location over Zurich See and good food, with a fast service.
The menu has more choices than I was expecting...and I really liked what I ate (awback: it's just opposite the train station, and it can be a bit noisy, especially whenthe cargo trains pass by).
But a very nice setting and deserving a visit for sure

We went there for a couple's night out and this restaurant turned out to be pretty good.

The food was irreproachable and the service was flawless and nice. I had a lobster that was awesome and, when it comes to quantity, was beyond expectations!

Prices are what you would expect from this region, but they are still pretty OK.

The only pity is the view on the railway station.; but I'd still warmly recommend this restaurant.
