Great location, atmosphere and food. Booking ahead recommended. Service on our visit was slow. Although they responded well to dealing with a food intolerance it took a couple of attempts to get it sorted.

Blasius was extremely professional and very effective as our waiter. The seating right in front made my wife's birthday very special. The food was exquisite!

First: the staff is amzing, friendly and helpful. When we asked for another table away from the big groups, they helped us immediately. But: the food, 3 out of 4 of us were unhappy. The seafood focaccia, was so though you couldn't cut it, the Gourmet Burger used to be amazing. Now it was more bread then meat and the gorgonzola sauce was non existing. The Fishermans pie was ok, but overpriced. The fish and chips was good. For us as locals, it is extremely expensive. And I really wouldn't mind to pay If the food was up to standard, but it looks like THe Tug has changed into a food factory. Will not go there again, unless for a starter outside on the terrace. The prices of the starters are still ok and they also taste nice. BUt, thumbs up for the staff, they work under great pressure and still going strong!

We have been to The Tug before on our last trip 3 years ago. It has still the stunning view. But the meals are not so good as before. The seafood soup has more paprika than fish . In the fish extravaganza is no crayfish anymore.

Another wonderful dinner at the Tug, and thank you very much for the lovely table by the window. The food was superb and the wine delicious. As before, we were particularly impressed by the wide variety of lovely dishes and wines the impeccable service. One asterix missing for atmosphere because of the high noise level in the restaurant. We will be back!

Das Diner, die Location war wunderbar und sehr schön. Die Einrichtung mit den verschiedenen Bereichen ausgezeichnet. Der Service ausgezeichnet und sehr aufmerksam. Wir waren zu zweit in einem grösseren Bereich platziert, wo es rund herum viele Gruppen hatte. Dies hatte in der Folge einen negativen Touch, da es zu laut war und die Ambiente für ein Tête à Tête zu laut war. Vielleicht kann man da, bei der Platzierung etwas Rücksicht nehmen, denn wir hatten im Voraus bereits reserviert. JP :=)

Spoilt by poor service. Two wine choices unavailable, the only a problem with a table next door, and then the waiter demanding a tip!!!
