It's the best place in Lucerne to eat good traditional Swiss Food where it's affordable for tourists. The waiters are very friendly and the menu is written in swissgerman (german & english too). It's situated next to the river Reuss with view to, next to the old town and the Chapelbridge.

Excellent asparagus soup and salad, but main courses and service were both average at best. Was disappointed as it did not meet expectations.

Reccomended by the receptionist at our Hotel as being "food that grandma cooked" Good sized portions - you will need a hearty appetite! Food reasonably priced for Lucerne, although as most places the wine/beer very expensive. Friendly staff, good service

At 7:30 on a Saturday, the only available table was for 5; we ended up sharing with a local couple from the next small town. Asparagus soup was excellent, as was the bread (common in Lucerne); Beef roll with lots of sausage and *really* yummy vegetables; veal cordon bleu was good , not great. Very nice ice cream with fruit... More

We were very excited to try this place. The reviews looked interesting and the price seemed reasonable for Lucerne. And it was just a few steps from our hotel. Alas, the person who greeted (sort of) us was not interested in real communication. She gave us confusing information about whether or not they could accommodate us. She gave a convoluted... More

We were looking forward to eat here tonight. The reviews looked ok, the menu was interesting. We walked in and it took the waitress 90 seconds to go from indifferent to unfriendly to rude. She was telling us that we could eat there, but had an hour to finish and leave. She pointed is to sit in a corner at... More

While in Switzerland, I was eager to try some traditional dishes. At Taube I had the rosti, potatoes, bacon, cheese, tomato, and fried egg. How can you go wrong! It was delicious, though so hearty I barely ate half. It made for a very homey and yummy dinner. I also really enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant, it is in... More
