On Friday after work I joined the lovely @okvillage for drinks and dinner at the lake in my favourite Swiss town, Zug. We got to watch a beautiful sunset before heading to dinner at the yacht club restaurant, Hafenrestaurant, with its lovely patio and fabulous views. Ms Village recommended the Fish and Chips, which i … Continue reading Zuger Sunset
I'd been to Loft Five (the bar) recently and liked it so much I promised myself I'd be back again... it took a few weeks, but this morning I made my way back.

The lake shore was filled to the brim with sun-seekers who all seem to have come out of … Continue reading Zurich: Afternoon Tea at the Eden au Lac
We start off our 2012 Dining out year on a really positive note, at Louis Brasserie in Niederdorfstrasse for dinner last night.

Granted, the big Moules-in-white-wine sign is what caught the ex’s eye … Continue reading Dining out
