Restaurant with a swing in front of it

Hi everyone!

I was recently looking for some nice places around Zurich on Instagram, and I found a restaurant with a view towards the lake (not exactly on the lake, more like on a hill above the lake), that had a big swing in front of it.

But now I can't find it anymore, and I can't remember its name! I tried all the possible google, instagram and map searches, but the big brother has failed me.

All that I remember from the map is that it was on the west side of the lake.

Can anyone recognize the restaurant I am talking about?

Thank you!

It's this one near Feusisberg.

Here's the google maps link

I've eaten there once but cannot remember the name.

Restaurant Luegeten in Pfäffikon (SZ)... which unexpectedly closed for good six months ago.

That explains the lack of a name on Google Maps.

Any idea why it closed? (sorry just seen your link!)

My favorite restaurant in Antibes was unexpectedly shuttered last time we were there - the food was fantastic.

A bit of digging and we discovered that the owner hadn't been paying his taxes!

According to the article, which quotes the co-owner of the restaurant, it looks like his ex-partner or a former partner of an associated company sued him for several hundred thousands of francs and won.

That seems like a good reason to keep a successful business going, unless he's pursuing bankruptcy for some reason. Or it may be that the owner of the premises is the one who sued the quoted co-owner.

Oh, I can't believe it is closed! That explains why the website is no longer in function

I hope the swing can still be used

The swing is in a public playground, I think.
