Looking for romantic restaurant around lake Zurich

Hi everyone.
I would like to invite my wife to a nice, romantic, relaxed restaurant somewhere around lake Zurich (now that the grandparents can look after the children during the spring holidays .

We live on the silver coast so anywhere from wollishofen to Rapperswil would be great. And I would like to give the super expensive places in Zurich centre a miss - looking for around 150sfr for two.

Does anyone have a good suggestion?

Many thanks.

L'O in Horgen is very good, right down on the lakeside. Not cheap but well worth the occasional splurge.

150 CHF minimum per person you mean right?

75 CHF per person would more be for a kinda regular restaurant.

You can try for 150 but I suggest to expect it a bit more pricier depending on how 'super expensive' you want to go.

Anyway, check out the following which should be likely what you are looking for:
Seerose: http://www.seerose.dinning.ch/
Acqua: http://www.acqua.ch/
Tracht: http://www.seerestauranttracht.ch/
Terrasse: http://www.bindella.ch/restaurants/u...staurant_id=11 (listed as they have the best steak and are kinda fancy
Uto Kulm: http://www.utokulm.ch (listed due to the nice view even though it is not at the lake)

Most of these require reservations thus do call them up first and make one...
Note that near the Chinese garden, thus on the opposite side of the lake there are a number of good restaurants too to go for a proper date.

Oh, and for a proper relaxed date a trip to RoteFabrik http://www.rotefabrik.ch is not a bad thing either

Re: Looking for romantic restaurant around lake Zurich

Not on the lake per se, but this place left me and my OH very, very impressed. Very romantic, and their cuisine is pure art. Try their menu degustation, "A priori", which is served to you in a special, intimate, dedicated room of the restaurant, to send your palate to heaven.

Gasthof Loewen in Bubikon

Then there is my favorite restaurant in Zurich (Oerlikon), which I am never tired of recommending: delicious food, not crazy prices, impeccable service.

Happy eating!

May not be in the region you're seeking, but been a couple times to the
"Romantik Seehotel Sonne" (Küsnacht) and it's wunderbar!

Thanks for all those great suggestions. Too much choice is a good thing I guess . Just need the weather to brighten up now. Fingers crossed.

I'll throw my hat in for Seerose, it's great food and a perfect location, and if the weather's decent, you can sit on the pontoon.
