We stumbled across this restaurant accidentally trying to look for a more peaceful evening away from Lucerne and it was an absolute hidden gem! On the road it looks traditional, but tucked away at the back they have a fabulous patio right on the lake with beautiful views. The food was traditional, local, fresh and well cooked. I've read a...

Came across this little gem by mistake as we were looking for breakfast/brunch while in Arth. It turned out to be the best find of the day as we enjoyed a plentiful breakfast outside, with a view of the mountain to the left and the beautiful calm lake just in front of us. There are plenty of choices for breakfast:... More

Once again had a wonderful diner with the family at restaurant Gartenlaube. Service hart warming and a menu with wonderfully belly warming seasonal and regular (regional) dishes. Had the vegetarian option of an autumn dish with red cabbage, chestnut, red wine pears and spätzli and enjoyed every bit of it. So concluding, when in Arth (Schwyz), Gartenlaube in my opinion...

The cruise boat on the Lake of Zug holds just in front of this garden restaurant. Middle in the nature, the Rigi mountain provides the shadow. Family type setting, the owners are involved. Not sophisticated but good value for money. Slight improvements of the menus would be helpful .

My friend & I ate lunch here a couple of months ago. We wanted to try another restaurant but they were not open. We found a table in the sun on the lake and were served by the owner's wife (he is in the kitchen!). What hospitable service! We ordered Reh and it was very good! I can recommend this... More

This restaurant is quite small and directly on the Zuger lake, in the small village of Arth. Part of it is open-air, under nice, lush trees and with partial mountain views. Staff is very friendly, food is good but nothing exceptional and they have a small, well-equipped changing table if you have little ones that need a diaper change. Ideal... More

Had brunch with some friends on a Sunday morning with some friends. Even though the weather wasn't good in the beginning they served their breakfast outside (on our wish). Most of what was served (buffet) was done by themselves and was great. Very friendly and very well located! Would also recommend as a place to either have dinner or lunch.... More

As I work in the area, I am a frequent guest of the Gartenlaube. Patrick and Susanne do their very best to feel you welcome, the restaurant has been traditionally in family hands for many years. The restaurant is beautifully located right at the Zugersee. They have a wonderful patio with gorgeous view over the lake, right next to the... More
