Fun place for an afternoon drink

Recommended by a store clerk, we made our way to this jazz bar for an afternoon drink, and stayed for 2! The hotel is up on a hill overlooking Lake Luzern, but don't worry, there is a tram that will get you there. What a view- enjoy the sights and your carefully crafted drinks!

See title. Enough said. Not just the food but also an excellent selection of wine. If u are lucky Tom will be your servant. We'll be back for sure.

Dined here on several occasions over the years. Remains a good hotel to stay at but the meal was disappointing. We had a nice table & there was nothing wrong with the meal but it was not a relaxing enjoyable experience. It took over 90 minutes to get our main course (about an hour after we finished the starter). There... More

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Lucerne. View is fantastic and food is also very good. Good choice for desserts here too.

Excellent food and great service in a spectacular location with phenomenal views. Hopefully you will be able to dine outside which will make the experience even better.

The terrace has an amazing view of the lake - so good , it's hard to believe it's real. The place is popular and we'll organized although the drinks service can be a little slow. The buffet has a huge choice of very well prepared food - an excellent choice for Sunday brunch

Our Silver Wedding Anniversary dinner was made special by the attentiveness of the staff. A very expensive meal but one we won't forget and I don't think you can put a price on a memory.

We were staying over the Christmas eve 2014-2015 and paid for the full package including the drinks in the bar and the dinner a la carte. . I visited the restaurant before, in 2004 and 2012. Well, nothing has changed. The food and the service for the money one pays here is below any critique. The staff exploits .The e... More

Great lunch, amazing location! We had lunch in the terrace overlooking the lake, the food was tasty and the service very attentive. I would love to go back for dinner maybe, to see how it looks like at night with all the lights on!

The restaurant environment is charming and elegant, well crafted and warm. It is a beautiful spot with a great view around the lake (but hard to see outside at night with all the internal lights). The service is kind and attentive, all waiters have a smile and are very present to help. Food was good too: we had a long... More
