Restaurant description

In the romantic Seehotel Sonne on the picturesque eastern bank of Lake Zurich stands the restaurant Sonnengalerie. With wellbeing at its core, this fine dining gourmet restaurant beguiles guests with fine, local produce-based cuisine.

The menu at Sonnengalerie demonstrates the head chef’s penchant for local ingredients and authentic flavours. At this restaurant in Küsnacht tuck into crispy beer-battered roasted perch fillets with parsley potatoes and their sauce maison, the delectable veal steak from the Zurich Oberland on a bed of fresh sautéed porcini mushrooms and herbs, accompanied by noodles and green pea mash, or juicy Alpine lamb with a black walnut crust and pecorino with grilled courgette, aubergine and potato gratin.

The ambiance in this fine dining restaurant remains first-rate and modern. With tasteful cream-coloured walls, white tablecloths and fine lighting, the Sonnengalerie adds a frisson of contemporary excitement with several stunning paintings on the walls.

Lively Zurich can be reached within ten minutes by car from Sonnengalerie. With public transport, the Küsnacht train station is just two minutes on foot from the Seehotel and the restaurant Sonnengalerie.

    Fine reception and welcome. Nice table with a very good view on the garden. The menu is small, but adequate. The wine list is good, but the number of open wines is very limited. The food was not as good as expected. The soup was rather bland, the fish dish a little basic like you would serve it at home. Nothing special when considering the location. The Cordon bleu and the deserts were good. The service was very attentive and service minded.

    Foodwise a very good experience, really recommendable. Stunning location, terrace overlooking the lake. Service was really bad though - long waiting times, despite there were many free tables all evening we did not get our explicitely wished/booked spot...

    The location was wonderful on a warm summer evening sitting outside on the terrace. Service was friendly and timely and we (4 of us) felt well taken care of. The disappointment was with the food which while imaginative left something to be desired. The "Eglifilets" which I had ordered on a previous visit were baked in some kind of beer-infused batter ("bierteig") and were not the usual "meuniere" and the result was not as satisfying as expected. I ordered the Gebratenes Doradenfilet this time (small portion) which was cooked in a curry sauce which to me did not go well with and had a strange looking "quinoa fritter" on the top which did not look very appetizing and which I left aside. The portions are generally quite small and there's an effort to make the presentation appealing and to reach a "gourmet" level. The wine list is comprehensive though the Zurich-sourced pinot noir I ordered was not that great at 62 francs a bottle. The restaurant was very full and is a great place to entertain as the ambiance and the view of the lake is superb. Too bad the food was a bit of a let-down. I would go there again to give it other chance and maybe try the meats on the menu may be more to my liking.
