Great Service!

This was the only restaurant in Switzerland I can say I've been well received and served. Congrats, Bruno et al! It's a complete experience: atmosphere, service and food. All great. Worth the price.

Geissmatt is not by accident that high in TripAdvisor. The comfortable environment and warm service really make the difference. The set menu is straight forward, precisely good and together with the owner´s wine recommendation for sure a good choice even tough you hardly have another :-) I can say I am a big fan knowing quite a lot of Lucerne´s...

I discovered this gem yesterday thanks to a new friend and client and I was beyond impressed with my experience. I am a food blogger (www.redfairyproject.com) and used to nice restaurants so my being satisfied says a lot. ;) The quality of the food was excellent (freshly made pasta, yummy salad), the waitress was super nice and I just loved...

Our group of 10 adults had reserved a table from Geissmatt with a help of a friend, since apparently this restaurant is very popular (for a reason). The restaurant does not have menu's, but you eat whatever is brought to the table. One our our entourage members had some food allergies which were communicated to the restaurant previously and her... More

We went to Restaurant Geissmatt for our christmas dinner. I haven't been there before and expected a lot because of the great Tripadvisor reviews - and they did not disappoint me! Bruno, the manager, and his staff were very friendly, charming and attentive. He explained every dish (5 course menu) and gave fantastic recommendations concerning the wine. It was no... More

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
