Tasty but costly

As a starter we had the avocado tartare which was tasty.
Then we had the tempeh and the vegan orechiette as a main course.
Both dished where tasty, especially the tempeh.
Overall - nice, that they offer a wide range of vegan options, but after all, it is also very costly as the dishes are quite small.

Pros: Many vegan options, Tasty food, Restaurant close to the lake

Cons: Pretty costly

Very good

I have never seen such a good menu with so many clearly labelles vegan options. Miso soup and sushis were amazing (service was slow so be patient).

Amazing plant-based Options

Various plant-based options, but unfortunately one problem: no plant-based milk available for coffee - despite a comprehensive menu including dessert.
Therefore 1 star deduction

its ok but...

We were not very satisfied with the vegan tasting menu. We were still hungry after it so we ordered more, Burger with fries and salat. Service was friendly.
For me the Restaurant is to Big.

Pros: a lot of options

Cons: small plates, expensive for what you get

Vegan Bomba

Offers a vegan 6 course menu that features the best tempeh in swiss tempeh history. Every course was creative, well thought trough and DELISH. Many dishes on the menu are vegan and vegetarian aside the 6 course one. Also: the cocktails. Geil.

Pros: Big seperate vegan section, Upscale 6 couse vegan menu, Many vegetarian options

Only 1-2 Vegan options

We were very sad about the stay at Blu. It was for a birthday but the very small choose of vegan food wasn’t good. The service not friendly and the bill at the end high ...

Cons: Expensive, Poor chooses

A disappointing date

Indeed, Blu is a fancy restaurant with clearly marked vegan options, but that's about where the good experience ended. I ordered the 'Avocado' dish that I translated from the menu to be an avocado tartar with tomato and corn. Sounds interesting. Turned out to be essentially a side salad of blended avo on a bag of defrosted corn and tomato, along with some mystery something on top which kind of looked like caviar but tasted like nothing. My omni partner had a kind of pizza that was so thick she couldn't eat more than 10% of it. Maybe the view here is nice but it was raining. San Pallegrino sparkling water is always nice and the table bread with the chilli oil was nice. Going to go home and eat a cliff bar.

Pros: Nice chilli oil, Several vegan options clearly labeled

Cons: The food
