Wonderful salad bar, soups to die for and the sweets... ohhhh. Excellent variety on half board for main course, although there is a superb A La Cart menu.

Restaurant Lapin made room for our party of 8 Americans with great attentiveness. The manager helped with our orders, since he spoke excellent English. I had the Jubilee Menu (3 course prix fixe), which was delicious and a very good value. Gazpacho was unusually presented (cold broth with diced vegetables to add in) but very tasty. Roast saddle of rabbit... More

We discovered this restaurant on our walk back from the Lion Gate. What a wonderful find. Himself had the 100 year old recipe for veal while I had the lapin leg. His was perfect and mine was so tender. We could not have been more pleased.

A good restaurant in Lucerne. The old wooden interior provides a warm and comfortable atmosphere, and the service was attentive. The lentil soup was very good, the rabbit with polenta was tasty and the Lucerner Fritschipastete was well done. Lapin also offers a small but very nice salad bar. It was nothing over the top, but al in all it... More

Ate here during a visit in December -we were unimpressed. While the staff was kind we definitely struggled in communicating not knowing German -and our server not knowing english. As it was, our order was mixed up and the food we got was not very good. We did not feel it was worth the price and would not go back.
