My husband and I went for an early dinner to beat the crowds. When asked for clarification on some of the menu items we were told matter of factory that it was 'all good'. My husband chose a sausage meal which was good but I ended up with a cold cut plate which was not clear from the menu. I... More

Two of us went to this cellar like restaurant near the weir in Lucerne. This is not a comfort zone because you sit on wooden chairs and benches which are a bit hard. On the other hand, prices are a little lower, though not much, than some other establishments serving much the same food. The service is excellent, efficient and... More

We visited Lucerne on a Sunday, where most of the shops and restaurants are closed. This restaurant was one of the very few that opens. We were seated inside, the interior have a very swiss design, like a traditional swiss wood house. Food are traditionally swiss too. However, most of the dishes are too salty for our liking (we found... More

We stayed in Lucerne for one night and our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant. We found they had a good variety and were knowledgeable about gluten free options. My wife and I had the white fish which was very good. One of the better restaurants that we found on this trip to Europe.

Our guide on the walking tour recommended it. Food was decent- actually good. My husband had the veal, and I had the potatoes with cheese, and a egg on top! Service was fine. I had a view of the door the waitresses and waiters used. Not a lot of ambience. The prices were very reasonable.

I think as everyone has said Switzerland does not do great value but by Swiss standards this restaurant is good value. Good food freshly prepared and served by smiling and competent staff. In other words a good restaurant.

Dine here in summer for the outdoor location, right by the weir with views of the old town. It's a great spot. The food is OK, but not memorable and a busy terrace made for indifferent service.

Somewhere between good and average for food and decor, service had a sense of the military to it. Something lacking from the overall experience to warrant a good rating.

The downstairs had a nice view of the cobblestone street but we preferred the upper level which was nice and quiet. Great food and reasonable prices for the area. Very friendly waitstaff and is in a nice location at the edge of the old town. My only complaint is that there were steep stairs and they said there was no... More

The hotel recommended this restaurant for great local food. We had a party of four - every one of us said that was the best meal of our two week trip. Food was very "homey", filling, tasteful and a great value. Restaurant was a little hard to find - but we are so glad we did. Felt like it was... More
