I went to Geissmatt with my family for dinner based on the good ratings of Tripadvisor. The 5-course menu is written on a board and there aren’t other options, since everything is made with fresh and mostly organic ingredients. Before the tasting menu (at 69.- chf pp), bread and mozzarella di bufala were served. The house also has very good... More

Recommended by Trip Advisor, we went there when we visited Lucerne in June. It is a small and friendly restaurant, and we were warmly welcomed by the restaurant owner. No there was only a set menu with no choice, the food was wonderful and with nice presentation. The Salad was particularly fresh and tasty while the steak was juicy and... More

Been there twice, and the food was decent, but hospitality lacked the basics. Telling the chef that the meat was not really tender earned a not-so-nice-reply: Not everyone likes sous-vide. Well, I happen to know that I do like it and that if done the right way, the meat is tender as hell. But well, the owner couldn't handle my... More

There is good food and then there is great food. This was great food. The menu is 5 courses and is pre-set. Along with a chef's offering, there is salad, pasta, entree, cheese and dessert. The entree we had was veal with potatoes and arugula. It was the best, most tender veal I think I have ever had, with a... More

the restaurant is supposed to be open until late. the opening hours on the doors are until 11pm. I arrived there at 9.50 and they refused to sit me. they were neither welcoming nor helpful. the 'late night' mention should be removed.

The food is delicious, great wine and the staff are excellent. The owner is a real character who will entertain you. Try their local Geissmatt beer if they have it in stock.
