We found this place courtesy of a local tourist magazine. My wife and I enjoyed a few drinks at the bar before our evening meal. Menu was of good variety, but I especially enjoyed the bacon wrapped beef roll. Service was very good, regardless of the fact that we did not speak the local language. The dining room itself was...

Went to this restaurant this evening and the service was absolutely disgraceful! The food was nothing special but of a good standard but I would never eat here again due to the personnell. There were 3 of us for dinner and we ordered a main course each, followed by a dessert. We spent 2 hours at this restaurant and only... More

Food was great for the heart and something well needed after a busy holiday schedule. Everyone knows it's expensive in Switzerland so it's hard to judge food. No matter what food I have had here I can get something twice as good at half the price everywhere else

My family of five dined here on a recent vacation. We were disappointed by the gruff and unpleasant attitude from the staff as we sat in their partially empty dining area. We were surprised at the fee charged to us for sharing a very expensive full priced entree with a 10 year old child. The waitress rolled her eyes at... More

There are tables on the river that initially you might not realize belong to restaurant. They don't tolerate you just taking up a table for drinks, must be eating. Served whole trout main attraction location. Staff was more attentive then other places, anticipating asking questions.

The restaurant is well located on the river right in Lucerne but away from the most overrun tourist area. The food was good and the atmosphere excellent. We went twice and the second time service was not great, due mainly to a new and inexperienced staff member.

As a first time visiter to lucerne I couldnt imagine eating my lunch in a better place. The views of the old town, bridges, water sound and great food. My children loved starring at the water and they loved there food. Very friendly staff as well. However you need to be ready to open up your wallet wide. 3 childrens... More

Having been to this restaurant in 2013 and enjoyed excellent food we booked a table for 12 July and both had the Roschti which was delicious. I then followed this with sorbet of prunes with spirit of prune which too was excellent. You may think – prunes - ugh! But they work really well in this form. We enjoyed our... More
