s'Wirtshaus am See

German in Friedrichshafen

Right on the lake front, this restaurant goes in for the new-wave rustic look, with a sleek blonde-wood interior, contemporary fireplace and funky stag antler lights. The Swabian menu includes dishes such as Allgäuer Käsesuppe (cheese soup), bratwurst in dark beer sauce, and roast chicken with lashings of potato salad. Try to snag a table on the terrace in summer.

Children's menus are available.

Beer lovers enthuse about the Wirtshaus brews that hail from the restaurant's private brewery in Allgäu.
