For the price, very bad. A cold coffee and a plate of "Knorr" rindsuppe is definetly not what i expected. Cozyness is supposed to be brought by a beautiful old...but cold furnace that is intended for drying clothes.

We hiked the Lechweg and stopped for some soup and a beer on the terrace: friendly service and good soup in a traditional setting. Not cheap but worth it.

This restaurant is a must go if just for the trip. You will be picked up from Lech and brought back by a snow truck. The trip is very exciting, especially for kids. The food is OK. You have to choose between Fondue and another menu before you arrive. The staff is friendly and service is good. Make reservations well... More

A 10min drive in the woods with a tank looking vehicle, upon arrival greeted with a warm glass of mulled wine is always a great start to your Saturday night dinner. Food and service also ticked the box. Overall a great experience - I would say a must for a ski trip in Lech.

Having booked a table well in advance and having had to choose our food a week before our visit we were expecting something special. First things first, if you ask to book the skidoo, bear in mind that they charge €14 for a return journey from Zug and also it's not actually a skidoo, more of a snow mobile. So,... More

This restaurant is hidden away at the end of the Zuger Valley. If you don't want to hike there on foot (30 minutes) they will pick you up and bring you back with their own snow taxi. It is absolutely worth your visit and the food is exquisite. We had their dear steak which was fantastic, so tender and juicy... More

A 3km walk from Zug, charming treck, lovely and serene views, the place is beautifully done in its simplicity, haphazard service, some super friendly and others not so much (unlike Austria's wonderfully warm welcomes), comfortable, table sharing wood lodge chalet. Do not cater for food intolerances, if you have any do not go since this is where it can get... More

Compared to last year this restaurant was a disappointment. Although the waitress made an effort to look after us in the nearly empty restaurant the atmosphere was dull. The first course which was a chicken croquette salad although it tasted good came in seconds and must have been pre-prepared. Our main course of grilled liver was poor. Both it and... More

I don't understand the bad reviews. I love this place. Service is personal and excellent, quality/price ratio is much better than expected from such a place in such a location. Just make sure you're not hiking there on Mondays as it's closed.
