For the best (and only in my opinion) brasserie in Luzern, head over to Joel (see my other review). The menu is trying to look authentic, but it doesn't taste it. The staff appears transient, and do not have that "Brasserie" style. The atmosphere matches the rest. Pass.

Even though we did not have a reservation, we were greeted graciously and fortunately seated right away. We noticed many local Swiss in the restaurant; glad that we were not in the typical tourist stop. We felt immediately that we were in Paris again. Service was excellent as was the food. Best escargot I have had in a long time!... More

Nice location, nice ambiance and good food, but service absolutely abandoned us after someone (not our server) delivered main course. We were drinking wine by the glass and never were offered a second (glasses empty from main course delivery). When we finished our main course, we waited 15 minutes for our plates to be cleared. When we mentioned dessert, it... More

Very good and tasty food - service staff very friendly and charming! Will definitively be there again. If you make reservation, ask to sit in the main restaurant or terrace and not in the little room aside.

After eating in a less ideal restaurant, we were recommended this charming French restaurant. Due to brasserie style the tables are close together but it was not over full so not too noisy and overheard. The food was excellent even for a veggie. Wine and food as good as it gets. Lucerne service is not over friendly, but was acceptable.... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident when looking for a place to have dinner last Saturday night, and we were pleasantly surprised. It is a traditional French brasserie, very cozy and inviting ambience. Although we are generally very disappointed with restaurant service in Lucerne, our waitress was helpful, friendly, and warm. We decided to follow her advice regarding the... More

in a maze of rooms one of which has a river view they serve up well done classic bistro food. Popular with the locals there is one room that looks out on the river which is worth getting a seat in if you can.

They ave a very nice terrace overlooking the river, but it is too small and cannot accept a table for more than 4 people.We ate at the outside courtyard which is in fact the street with a small side view to the river. The food was good, but super expensive and the waiters were nice but quite incompetent. The service... More

We turned up fairly early in the evening saying we would be back at 7pm and would they have a table on the terrace for us? They thought not but in the end there was one available up on the first floor overlooking the river and the road along it. The food was delicious but our waitress seemed to suffering... More
