Fischers Fritz – Casual dining by the lake

If you want that seaside feeling in the middle of a city in a landlocked country, Fischers Fritz is the only answer. This restaurant is part of the Fischers Fritz campsite, but feels more like a beach bar in Barcelona than a snack bar next to a load of tents. 

Although you can sit inside, it is much more enjoyable to sit on the bleached tables and chairs outside next to the lake and soak up the sun. The food here is also great! The emphasis is very much on fish from the Zürich lake and they even have their own fresh fish sushi bar. I love the ‘fisch knusperli’ salad, with battered, fried egli fish, salad and tangy tartare sauce (and a glass of chilled, dry rosé)! They also do a champagne brunch buffet on Sundays which is supposed to be epic.

The service is friendly but not particularly speedy, so be patient, relax and enjoy the summertime feels…
