We ate dinner at the restaurant each night we stayed at the hotel. The service was really good, (well done Sandra), the dishes were always very tasty and the atmosphere lovely. Compared to similar restaurants the price was not more expensive. Happy to pay for good quality and service.

extraordinary kitchen. The quality of the meal we had was well beyond our expectations. If you have interest in gourmet cooking dont overlook this restaurant. I have not checked if it had won awards for quality but regardless stands above many of Luzerns finest restaurants. Surprisingly, the prices are not inflated considering the location and flair of the establishment. The... More

Funicular was closed. But the hike up is pretty gentle. It take about a good 15mins from town. What made the 2 stars? Service. It was bleh. We did not stay at the hotel, but at another 4 star hotel in the town, by the river and I have to say that the service here in Gütsch was nothing close... More

Lovely location and view. Can access via a funicular, a pathway, or roadway. Lots of history. Great meal and wonderful service. Dress a bit for the occasion! Also a marvelous place to go for a drink. All the food ordered (by party of 7) was well-prepared and tasty.

Visited Restaurant Chateau Gütsch on the occasion of a company function. The last time I came here was in the late 90s for a High Tea. Well, the view of the city of Lucerne is truly spectacular, the interior of the "Gütsch" has been nicely renovated but what matters most - the food - was just so-so (a bland cream-of-something...

Nice dining location on top of a hill in a castle. We enjoyed snooping around the corridors after dinner. Service was fine and the food was nice, we had light fares and enjoyed a salmon with artichoke and avocado sauce. I imagine this is a great place for brunch, specifically to enjoy the view and the park thereafter.

Extremely pleasant staff, very good food, wonderful view, old world charm with modern day menu. Menu was well presented and not pretentious as in some other places. For Switzerland prices were reasonable and portions were good. Glad we ignored some of the other comments as we were very pleased with our choice. Also the bar is really cool, bartender creative...

We has a most pleasant dinner at the Chateau Gutsch restaurant last Thursday night. We understood the menu has recently changed so we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. The salmon appetiser was most creative with a wonderful combination of flavours. Main course at dinner was also perfect. We both had the pork tenderloin, served... More
