Good Local Food

We had visited Lucerne many times and had tried lots of recommended eating place. This time we decided to try Lapin since it was close to our hotel. The food itself was decent (not exceptional). Prices seemed in line with the other local restaurants. Our server was accommodating and friendly.

We were looking for restaurant to try Swiss food and we decided to go to Lapin. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere and good food. Prices are same as all other places in Switzerland. Good location, not so far away from sightseeing.

My husband I had a most charming meal at Lapin during a recent trip to Lucerne. The restaurant has an old word feel and most sumptuous meals. The service was friendly and the owner stopped by to ensure the quality. A very civilized evening! Highly recommended and can't wait to return!

I had the most terrible experience one can have... My wife and 3 yr old son went first and selected a table. Even after saying that 3 more people(me and parents) are coming, the waitress was extremely rude.. (Basically since we were Indians). She was smiling at all other tables... After ordering 2 dishes ( which were pathetic and stale)... More
