Swiss specials in the heart of the city

We were looking for traditional food in Lucerne and Taube impressed us with choice of swiss specials. I specifically wanted to try Lozärner Chögalipaschtetli and it was simply delicious! Highly recommended for local specials food lovers

I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a tour guide, and was not disappointed. The food was amazing, mouth-watering taste. Their wine list was also fabulous. Everythingaboutthis restaurant was really great. The decor, the ambience, the location in center of town. Highly recommended.

I have now eaten at this restaurant 4 times and each time has been a food experience. The tables are in little alcoves of a very old building and the food is great. I have had Rosti and Alpen Magone and both are very filling and very favorable.

Swiss restaurants are significantly more expensive than those we visited yesterday in Milan. That being said, the service was excellent. The food was tasty and the location perfect. We ordered 2 bowls of soup, 1 glass of wine and 1 sparkling water. The bill was $48 CHF. The soup was served with a brown bread, it was truly delicious, just... More

My wife and I ate lunch and dinner at Wirtshaus Taube and found the menu to be extensive and the food delicious. The outside setting on Burgerstrasse just off the River Reuss near the Needle Dam is quiet and attractive. The genuine Swiss Cooking is worth the marginal service.

By Swiss standard, the price is really reasonable. Food is filling and delicious! I ordered the famous sausage and hash brown. Really loves it! Cosy environment too!

The city of Lucerne is among the most beautiful in the world. It doesn’t have the impressive buildings of government like Budapest or Vienna, but what it does have is old world charm. We enjoyed our day in town very much, eating along the Reuss River, across from “Old Town” at the Taube Restaurant. The location is what drew us... More

After spending ages trying to find a restaurant in Lucerne that didn't have the usual over priced tourist menu we happened upon this restaurant. The staff were welcoming and the menu sounded at least a bit Swiss so thought we'd give it a try. It was probably the nicest meal we had in our week long visit to Switzerland. I... More

This restaurant was a highlight of our dinners in Switzerland. Most restaurant offer a very similar menu most probably aimed at tourists. Sadly the price of basic dishes such as Caesar Salad are very high and price varies quite dramatically for the sale dish. We found Taube on one of our wanders and decided to give it a try as...
