Great place for a night out

This place is a gem. Tucked away on a side street it's not your run-of-the-mill Old Town bars that any tourist can walk in to. We ended up here on a cold March night with a bunch of colleagues and were surprised to find such a cheerful and laid-back place with tasty tapas and salads, cold beer and... read more

We went as a group of 7 and ordered Tapas. The service was excellent and the food great. All the food was served at the same time, and the wait was no longer than you would expect for freshly prepared food. For Lucerne the price was very reasonable and good value for money. The Gambas con Jerez, and the chorizo... More

Cabanas is a great little place in new town, Lucerne. Terrific ambiance and gorgeous outdoor seating area for warmer weather. Cabanas serves a large variety of Spanish Tapas, which we love. Small plates lend a certain family atmosphere to a table and Cabanas is happy to keep them coming. I have found a few dishes overly salty, but in general... More

Very pleasant atmosphere, surprisingly affordable lunchtime menu with something to suit everyone. Starter of soup or salad included in the price. Will definitely return!

Looking up somewhere new to eat in Luzern we found this place thru trip advisor. The reviews were not wrong. They offer around 60 tapas to choose from warm and cold. Plus appetizers and main courses. Tapas range in price from 8 to 18 francs. The service personal recommends 2-3 tapas dishes for a evening dinner. We took 6 (3... More

Lovely food, cosy atmosphere and Maria, our waitress looked after us very well. A little away from the typical tourist traps (just along from the second wooden bridge on the opposite side from the old town). We were really please we came here!

A great tapas place in Luzern. We went wild and ordered a lot of things: all tasted very nice and it tasted Spanish and not Swiss (Swiss = salty and no spices)! The staff was kind, Spanish, nice and working very hard. The menu contains basically the normal Tapas: Patatas Bravas, hams and cheeses. Many different types of shrimps, meat... More

In our year living in Luzern, this is a definite favourite. We love all the tapas, and just find great hospitality, food and drink with terrific value (for Switzerland) every time. It is also a favourite of our dog, Daisy, who is also made very welcome each time. From the little complementary nibble to our favourites such as the meatballs,... More

Cabanas is a centrally located Spanish restaurant with a cozy bar in Luzern/Lucerne (situated in the trendy Bruchmatt-quarter). As we are living in Luzern, we celebrated a birthday party (about 30 people) there back in November 2010 with René's (cook) delicious and outstanding Tapas and great wine and were back for several other occasions since. They serve mainly Tapas (the... More
