I liked the vibe of the place (a neat mix of blue collar and hipster). Food was solid if not spectacular. Beer was good (local breweries). Be warned that it was cash only (or at least cash preferred).

It's a mixed ages crowd, but it seems to get younger after 9pm. Try the Appenzeller Hanfblüte if you like a more flavorful beer than a typical Eickoff. If you go between lunch and dinner they have only a smaller menu. The food is reasonably priced and quite good. They have an outdoor patio, indoor communal table, and pool tables... More

This place is pretty close to our hotel and one of the few which was open on Easter holiday.It turned out to be a surprise package and one of the best lunches I had in Switzerland. The waitress was very good and prompt and the food was just out of the world. Also ordered for desert - Apple pie with... More

Friendly "bohemian" cafe bar for mainly young folk (unlike us!) proved a good choice for a veggie even having what looked to be a dairy and egg free option . Still expensive for fairly basic food but probably not by Swiss standards although there are two cheaper set options at lunch times one of which is veggie.

The negative reviewers must have come on a bad day. This is our second visit and service couldn't be swifter or more agreeable. We're in Lucerne for 9 weeks and have to find evening meal options every day. Eating out has worn quite thin for us, but we discovered Parterre this week and are delighted. Last time two of us...

we are a family of 4. the place is casual ~ folks sit at communal tables. they serve a bit of everything: pasta, panini, couscous stuffed eggplant. it is a 'college vibe' ~ lot's of late teen / early 20s folks. it was good for the money.

This bar is located in the Neustadt. The atmosphere is cool and relaxed, and unlike many bars and restaurants in Lucerne it is also open on Saturdays and Sundays. I love this place, especially to meet friends. I springtime one can have a bier outside.

This is a very local restaurant. The waitress could bearly speak english. In my memory, there wasn't any english menu but they do have a website with the menu on it. If you can only understand english, I suggest you to do a google translation of the menu first before going there so you know what you want to order.... More

Excellent spot for Sunday brunch. A good selection for all tastes. Good way to spend Sunday mornings/afternoons, reading the papers.
