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

I had dinner at this restaurant while on a two-week business trip to Lucerne. I ate in the outdoor courtyard, which was pleasant. The bread, salads, entrees, desserts and wine were all good. I would recommend this restaurant.

The concierge at the Art Deco Hotel Montana suggested this restaurant. I was somewhat concerned about some of the reviews which mentioned the smoky bar since I believe smoking is permitted in Lucerne restaurants and my husband and I detest smoking in restaurants. You do have to enter the restaurant through the smoky bar, but once inside the dining area... More

Having eaten in Paris, I can say that the food is comparable at Brasserie Bodu. The one thing for me that I did not like, was that, like in Paris, there is lots of smoking inside. In fact, when my husband and I first walked in someone was smoking a cigar. I am not French so it bothers me a... More
