Magical view

At night, really beautiful overlooking Lucerne. Enjoyed the 'hello' sample from the kitchen, along with the bread and dips. My choice of food was delicious. Waitress / Waiters were very attentive.

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

This was our second (and last) time eating at this restaurant. Our first experience was quite a positive one and so we decided to return and ordered the same dish as previously, the chateaubriand for two. At 96 CHF it is not cheap but when done right, should be worth it. Let me begin by saying that we have had... More

Went to Chateau Guetsch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Very much regretting that decision given the many amazing options in this beautiful city. We got a great table by the window with an amazing view of the city. It went downhill from there. The service was haphazard at best. Wine came after the first course, etc. The food that was... More

We stayed 2 nights at Chateau Guetsch and ate at the hotel one night. It was the most expensive meal we had on our entire Swiss/Germany trip, and for the price was underwhelming. While nothing was particularly bad about the food, nothing stood out either, especially not for the price. The service was excellent however, and the view is spectacular.... More

We wanted to try this restaurant because we’d heard it had a great view of the city and it was the inspiration for Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty’s castle. From our hotel we took a taxi to the chateau and when we walked in they told us where the restaurant was but encouraged us to explore the hotel. Exploring was fun... More

First the good news: after a cycle of closings and openings of both the hotel and restaurant over more than a decade, this place finally seems to be open for good again - at least for right now. If nothing else, it's worth going there as it offers about the best view there can be had over the city of... More

Had a very average experience, which could have been fantastic with some staff training/changes. First, the food was very good, excellent presentation and slightly creative. The service was shockingly bad. From the lack of greeting, to young girls poorly trained......it was very bad. White wine served warm, no bread until after the start (and had to request), very nice girls... More

This white fairly tale castle was spotted by me as I swam in the lake near Lucern. Our friend booked a table on the terrace for the evening. We were welcomed and the three of us were royally treated but the attentive and courteous waiting staff. I had heard that Queen Victoria had liked going there. The cold cucumber soup... More
