Joaquín from Spain writes:

I agree with another reviewer. Service quality in Zurs-Lech is not as it used to be. In our case, the attitude of the person in charge of the restaurant at the top of the Zursersee was extremely disgusting and unfriendly from the first moment. In addition to that, he made us wait a long time when paying. While he was sitting and having fun with his friends.

Will not go back.
