A cozy restaurant with a beautiful view on the lake of Zug.

The 300-year-old house, partially modern renovated, invites to enjoy wonderful meals throughout the year. Our restaurant has three stylish rooms. Each with its own individual charm. We offer a cosy atmosphere and make every meal an unrivalled pleasure. Our magnificent garden has a view of the lake and provides the perfect setting for enjoying the beautiful weather from spring to late summer.

Seeblick Stübli Wildenmann


The Seeblickstübli has a beautiful view of both the lake of Zug and the Zugerberg. The “Stübli” was just recently renovated and is marked by its lightness. The room seats about 24 guests.


The Wystübli, our smallest room located next to the entrance, is the ideal dining room for six to twelve people. The 300-year-old tiled stove provides for a comfortable atmosphere. The Wystübli can be combined with the Buonaserstübli into one room, which is excellent for holding parties or banquets. By opening the room divider, the open space can seat between 22 to 55 guests.

The Buonaserstübli is a comfortable room for à la carte dining, as well as for seating a group of 14 to 18 people who would like to dine together around a large table. Combining this room with the Wystübli is very popular for parties and wedding banquets (22 to 50 people).

The garden

The beautiful garden, quietly located adjacent to the house, offers a magnificent view of the lake of Zug and the Zugerberg. On hot summer days, our garden offers an oasis for relaxing and enjoying the day. The shady chestnut trees make every meal an unforgettable experience. Promised!

A passion for hospitality

For 19 years, we have successfully run our own restaurant “Wirtshaus zur Sonne” in Ballwil. In 2000, we were awarded the 15. Gault Millau point, which we have maintained until today. For over nine years now, we have been greeting our guests in the Restaurant Wildenmann in Buonas on the beautiful lake of Zug.

Our team combines traditional with modern, delighting both young and old alike. We would be happy to serve you in an intimate setting within our collegial working climate where the highest quality and standards come first.

The history of our House

Documentation shows that the Wildenmann tavern was first mentioned in 1426 as the “Wirty zu Buonas”. It was a property of the lords of Hertenstein who at the time ruled from the Buonas castle.

The current restaurant was built in 1708. The “Wildenmann” is the heraldic supporter of the Lucerne coat of arms. Until 1782, the lords of Hertenstein, who were in service for Lucerne, owned the estate. This was always a thorn in the side of the lords of Zug, as after all, the property was located within the territory of the sovereignty of Zug. Constant arguments between Zug and Hertenstein resulted, in which the ownership of the house was disputed.

The name “Wildenmann” was first mentioned in 1813 as the “Taverne zum Wilden Mann”. However, due to the house’s history, it is to be assumed that the “Wildenmann” name dates back even further than that. Until 1959, the Wildenmann contained the residents’ registration office and the office in which municipal assemblies were held. The Wildenmann has up until today been in private ownership. The current owner acquired the property in 2004. In the meantime, the house has been renovated both inside and out.
