Hidden place for insiders

Woow, how high class food and service and the good drinks they serve you there. The only thing to complain is, that it is hidden (hehe) and not easy to find.

Sebastian's atmosphere, location, seafood and wine selection were unsurpassed. Chef Rolf personally attended to our table numerous times throughout this memorable evening. Ed & Helen

we really enjoyed it! HEALTHY, GOOD and PEACEFULL! Excellent fish and good service. We checked other places around but they were not as healthy as this one except for Nix restaurant.

The place was nice and the atmosphere was cozy... there was only 1 other occupied table by a middle aged couple... The waiter paid us no attention & was not courteous @ all. He was acting exactly the opposite with the couple @ the other table... There was a hair in our salad & his reaction to that was "... More

This is quite a seafood destination - hidden away from the main street is this gem of a restaurant. A group of 5 of us had a long lunch there last week and after numerous plates of appetizers, we finished off with some of the tastiest seafood I've had in a long time. The oysters and mussels were first rate... More

It is quite difficult to get proper mediterranean fish dinner in Lucerne. So I was very happy when I found Sebastian's. So far it is the only place we found in this city where you can get the most authentic delicate seafood taste. The chef we had on the occasion presented himself before receiving our order and was so attentive... More

We spent a long w-end in Lucerne and this was the worst experience we had. The place was empty on a Saturday lunch time and that should have been a lead. We persevered and much to our dismay were served a not very nice meal due to the total lack of inspiration of the chef and mostly the lack of... More

We ate here at the end of April 2012 - the food was excellent. We took mussels and squid for starters, and the squid had been marinated and was very, very tender - absolutely delicious! We then took a mixed seafood plate and the king prawns - every piece of fish and seafood was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed every... More

We visited Lucerne in September 2011, and we decided to try this restaurant because of the reviews on trip advisor. It was so quaint and clean and friendly! The staff consisted of a husband and a wife, and they were incredible! The food was delicious, and they made it such a beautiful experience! We were on our honeymoon visiting different... More
